Happens on all tapes I have. Picture is fine
Thanks Ray for the reply.
So sound goes out intermittently even if that tape played fine previously on this camcorder, is this correct?
- Have you tried to run video head cleaning tape in camcorder?
[please note that picture and sound reads out on tape with same drum (video head assembly) in this camcorder]
No, I do not have a video8 tape cleaner. The problem seems to be with the connections. When I move the leads the sound changes from nothing to OK! I have got 4 tapes to work OK, but then the sound goes out again.
I tried another camera with the same new leads and sound was fine but picture was no good. That is why I am trying to get this one to work as picture is good and sound OK when it wants to work. It is not working at the moment. Can it be fixed?
The video grabber leads are new and I have had the same problem when connected to TV with camera leads, so I know the fault is in the camera. At the moment I am connected to PC for DVD work, but I had the same sound problems when reviewing tapes on TV. It is definitely the camera or connections in camera.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX figured most of that out, I just wanted to know if camera was repairable. I will ask for refund - sorry!
OK, please do not rate the answer and leave it as it is, send an email to customer service atXXX@XXXXXX.XXX for refund. Thanks.
