Have you checked to see if the tape is write-protected ?

If the battery is charged, and the power is on, it may be jammed and in need of cleaning. If that is all normal the motor for the tape door may be damaged or has died. Insure tape position is correct and only push where marked.

More than likely you have a clogged head(s). Use a head cleaner (Sony, JVC or Panasonic ONLY) and you'll probably be OK. If you require Professional service, we can help!

I have looked at the video.There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the camcorder.The problem is more from the angle at which you are recording.You seem to be a little offset from center,probably because there are seats in the center and you do not want or cannot record from there so that people may sit in the middle or behind that without an obstructed view.Are you recording from as close to the seats as possible,meaning in the aisle?Try recording from the center,even if it's in a seating area.You should try experimenting a little.Have someone stand towards the center,like in the video.Move your camera around to different areas and see where you can get the best results from.Move to the furthest area back,and see how close you can zoom in to get a good picture.Then work inwards from there.If you do not have a full capacity crowd,they will understand even if you are in the seating area taking video.It should not block a whole lot of seat views.If you are quite full,just move farther back.TAKE NOTES when you are attempting to get a good picture.Seat,row,location,etc.Then you have a quick reference to adjust to if necessary.Even if all 3 legs of the tripod are not able to extend fully if shooting from a seat row,the 3rd leg should be able to shorten up to put on the seat,but you may have to weight the seat down if they are the ones which automatically pop up.If the seats have a gap between the back of the seat and the upright part,you will probably have to rig something to hold the leg in place.Using the tripod in the seat,the best idea would be to push the 3rd leg which is on the seat up against the back edge and wedge it there somehow.That would give you the best stability. gmccarthy 86 hotmail If you reply,please write something in subj line so I know it's a good email because it will show up in my junk at first.Also,a note for the speaker.When listening to public speaking,'filler' words like uh and um are VERY annoying to many who are listening.Have the speaker look at himself on video and practice not doing this.He is doing it quite a bit.Personally,that alone would have gotten me to walk out after a short time if I were at this particular link's sermon. Good luck,Greg

If your camera gets wet, best bet is to take it to an Authorized service centre right away. They can open it up and clean up the boards.

If you are talking about salt water, get there ASAP. Salt is the worst as it corrodes into the boards. Once the corrosion sets in, and depending on where it sets, you are going to get an unreliable and possibly expensive to repair camera.

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

Ok, well there is a workarround.. What one can do is simply use the AV cables, a USB Video IN Dongle, about $20.00. this then will allow you to connect the Camera to the PC, you can then "Stream" the Video from the Camera, to the PC, via the USB link, at FULL HD quality, save the "Played" Video as a suitable file, and do whatever you want with it. Using DVR software you simply, play on the recorder and Record on the DVR, and you'r good to go. Save as an MPEG4 or whatever format you want.
If you know how to edit the conf files then maybe you can make the existing scratch drive, persistent, making it unable to be removed.
Also you may like to try a Firewire to USB Dongle, this then will allow you to use the USB port, NOT the firewire..then at least you will be able to get data into the PC that way, although a wee bit slower, but this hardly matters in the big scheme of things.

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

People are always blowing out their firewire port by making a hot
hookup. Don't confuse firewire with USB, which is safe. In the users manual you will see warnings about making sure the equipment is powered off before hooking up the firewire cable.
Try hooking it up to another computer and try using a simple program like Windows Movie Maker or something, if it still doesn't
regognize it, get your camera into an authorized service facility.
