Sony HDR-HC3E error code C31 22 and message 'reinsert cassete'. I've reinserted cassette, tried another new cassette, checked for dirt etc. It was working the day before, it will record but on playback the error code and message appear, and tape stops. It will play last 2 seconds of recorded video. I've removed power, battery, pressed reset. No mechanical damage. What is causing it?

Canon xt When I try to shoot sports at night under lights I am having difficulty getting my camera in maunal mode without having bulb mode as well. How do I turn bulb off? I am setting my ISO at 1600 and pushing my f-stop as low as I can go, am I doing something wrong? It worked once for a recent football game but again last night shooting soccer could not get the bulb setting to turn off.
First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not con ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

When shooting a movie, the camera automatically stops recording after 5 seconds. about 2 seconds before it stops recording, something like a meter bar appears on the right of screen, and it jumps up from 1 block to 4 blocks and stops recording. I can't record a movie for longer than 5 seconds!
Most cameras require a card that writes data fast in order to keep up with shooting movies. If your card is slow, you might consider buying a faster (albeit more expensive) one. ... Digital Cameras

Bought a direct dvd recorder Sony DRV-MC10 on Amazon.USA,namely imported from USA to Greece. I can only record fotos on the DVD. When trying to record on dvd through all input connections I get an error message''incorrect colour system''. I use PAL tapes shot on Sony handycam or video from quick SDHC memory card 16GB shot on Panasonic handycam.So my drv-mc10 is sofar practically useless.
Yes, the problem with electronics is the US uses NTSC and most other countries use PAL, it changes how the tape head alignes with the tape. You have to insure the device you have is both (most devices are) so try and get into the menu settings and s ... Digital Cameras
We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute

First of all, don't use the flash...it's only good for a short distance. Obviously, you need a fast shutter speed to stop the action. To get this to happen while in auto mode, you will need to set the ISO to a higher number such as 800 or 1600. You w ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
I have a JVC recorder DR MV150B and I am trying to download a movie, but the disk i have is a SONY DVD+RW and the manual indicates that I neeed DVD+RW disks manufactured by MITSUBISH, or HP, or VERBATIM. First, will the SONY DVD work in this recorder. If not, where can I find the correct DVD> I have been to Radio Shack, Target, and walmart and none of them stock rhe ones listed in the manual. If the SONY wiill not work, where can I order the correct DVDs.
Just pay attention not to damage the video footage during the operation and you can try with the one you have if it is a DVD + RW ..I think you should format the DVD first and after that record on it ..It doesn't really matter the manufacturer as lon ... JVC Digital Cameras

How do I recover deleted / overwritten movie files from our Sony DCR-SR85E? We used the 60GB space available and then saved movie files onto an external pc hard drive which has been lost by a DVD conversion provider we engaged. We have also recorded additional movie files on the same Sony Video Camera Recorder and it is nearing memory capacity. Is there a forensic method available to retrieve our original deleted / overwritten files and what is the best option available? Thank you in advance.

Just few days before I purchased Nikon P90. Earlier I used Sony H50. I am very disappointed with P90. Reasons are : i) The LCD display is very poor compressing with Sony H50. ii) Battery levels are not displayed unless the power is too low. iii) Picture quality not very satisfied. iv) If I take a close picture, the subject size is changed. (example, I take a close picture of my daughter for passport size picture, but my daughters' face is changed in picture). It is very pleasurable for me if

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer.
