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. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use
Well, you failed to tell us the make and model of the camera so I can only give you a generic answer. New cards must be formatted in the camera. Video requires a fast card so it can keep up. ... Digital Cameras
We have a 2005 panasonic mini DV, with 800x, About two years ago we began to have problems playing back the video, the sound was gone and there was blue stripes through the playback video screen, or the screen was a crazy jumble of the image. It seemed to fix it self most of the time, this time however we just have a blue screen and it won't play back our videos on the camera. I fooled around with recording speed but I'm not sure that's the problem. Is our problem something we can fix or sh

I wa nt to play back the old tapes have and record them onto dvd can it be repaired and how much would it cost?
The power up problem perhaps can be solved by replacing the clock battery that is under the view finder arm. Move the arm to get at the small battery draw and replace the CR2025 button battery. ... Digital Cameras

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again. Then the screen is blank, shows no picture until i push the play button, or until I change what picture setting it is on. Once the screen shows picture it will not focus anything. Any help here?
Do you hear any unusual friction noise while the lens assembly projects out.. if so then the traction assembly of your zoom barrel has developed mechanical obstruction, in which case it has to be serviced. Take it to the service centre and the proble ... Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing. Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still
The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand ta ... Digital Cameras

I have a samsung L200 digital camera. It was working fine until my 2 year old little girl decided she needed to play with it. Not sure if she done something or not but now the camera will not work. When I try to turn it on the power button lights up but that is all that happens. The screen does not come on or anything else. Also the lens seems to be stuck and will not go back in. And I also just noticed that the power button will only turn the camera on but will not turn it off. I was trying to
