Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a miniDV cassette that has a damaged door mechanism and the tape has been snapped. Can this be repaired to enable transfer to a digital medium


Answers :

Yes the tape can be repaired. The problem is that at the point of the break, there will be some data loss. It should be minimal unless the tape was stretched first. If it is a clean break, the data interruption will be small. The door should be removed as it is primarily there for protection from dust and dirt.

I have a Panasonic NV-DS5 digital video camera. Whenever it tries to load a tape it displays an error code "F 01" on the screen. I've tried several tapes and they're all good quality. I assume it needs repairing and I'm trying to find a service centre in the UK that I can send the camera to be repaired.

I have a Panasonic camcorder NV-GS70B which writes to mini DV tapes. I am now finding that on playback of tapes I have recorded it is losing the audio signal on some tapes. Some of these tapes I know originally had an audio signal recorded. Someone has suggested there may be a build up of oxide on the heads which might have been transferred to some of the tapes. I have tried a head cleaning tape (twice) but without effect. I have two concerns: 1) the camera - can it easily be repaired 2)

I have a problem with the Panasonic AJ-D200. The tape will not close. The symptom developed after I loaded a head cleaning cassette. I then loaded a normal tape and now it won't close. I then changed this tape drive for a spare drive. Powered up the camera and tried again. I loaded a head cleaning cassette. Then loaded a normal cassette and now this one won't close.

Since I bought my HDR-HC1E in December 2005 I enjoyed really my camera, but since a few years now I have experienced so many times a warning about 'moist condensation' then I have to 'eject tape'. This just doesn't work for a long time. It is very tedious and I only found out by accident a way to overcome this problem is by ejecting the mini DV cassette (but keep the mini DV tape in the cassette holder), switching off the camera, remove the battery. Close the cassette holder and then slide in th

My canon vixia hv30 camcorder is not reading tapes anymore. It rewinds and forwards and reports the tape position but the tape counter does not roll showing only dashes as if the tape is empty. All this started when i put in a cassette in which the tape has somehow become crunched. There was some pushing involved and the camera auto-ejected teh tape a couple of time before i realized that the tape inside was crunched. I then straightened the tape by pulling it partly out and rewinding it manual

When I insert the cassette into the camera, I hear noise like it is setting up, but when I press play or record, whether I'm in the VCR mode or the Camera mode, it whirrs for a moment, then stops.
