The NV-GS50 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Check with the instruction manual for the camcorder which type and capacity SD cards it will "support" and use only the specified cards. The camera will reject any card with a greater Gb capacity than it's system can support.
The more recent your camera the greater card memory capacity will be supported.

Possible that the video head is dirty and so there is DROP OUT factor as no signal is picked up from the head . The head can be clogged due to fungus from old tapes or from ferrite dust.
Use a good head spray to clean , also use a good head cleaning tape so that the head cleans and it is able to pick up the signals from the tape.
Finally in some cases the dirt can be so strong that you will need to manually clean the head.

Hi kafiye_tr55,

Please make sure that you keep your camera switch on for at least half and hour before you press the reset button.

If that does not work , you need to find a battery which is small is size and located either near the LCD or near the main battery compartment which is called as a CMOS battery and usually it's removed to reset the factory settings to it's default.

If you are able to find that battery , please remove it along with the main battery and after 12 hours put it back again so that it works fine.

Also if this does not work then try upgrading the firmware , of this camcorder, however a firmware upgrade will not help if there is a physical damage to any chip inside or a chip is malfunctioning , so the last option would be to get it repaired via the service center.

However I am pretty sure that the battery tricks i have mentioned above will work.

Hope this helps ...:)

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

This happens when the internal focus lens is off track or impaired in some way and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
