Hello, I have still a long time my Handycam again fetched from the cupboard. Male from Other Charger tuned .... The camera goes, but the viewfinders will be displayed in the lithium battery should be changed and the sign of disturbance / or. Video head cleaning appears. A cassette or front-back cue does not work. The camera ran perfectly before storage. The total duration of the camera is actually synonymous not so high that a cleaning would be due. Had someone been synonymous times as a problem, and there is a solution?
Antwort von Jogi:
Then you should just switch Battery. For the head cleaning, you must already have a cleaning tape for a few seconds (no longer) can pass through.
Please do not confuse the Lithium Battery with the Battery of the Camera. The lithium battery is a small button cell which is behind a small flap s.Gehäuse hides. This feeds the memory for dates, time and possibly other menu settings.

Danke Jogi, have changed the battery. But has not the desired success. Have now the lid of the cassette tray off to get better in the device into it to see. Also, the camera runs on "recorder" position with quite a noise while, but the film is not properly recovered. After a short time then plenty of "beeps". It appears as if the drive is somehow verharzt or so. Can man because maybe somehow come off?
Antwort von Jogi:
A Spritus, or ethanol-impregnated cotton swab is a good helper for cleaning of metal such as tape guides or synonymous to the head drum. But should a bearing lubricant, etc. will help have lost only a maintenance of the drive. But whether it is (at the old Cam) still worthwhile, I doubt. For a few hundred Eurolinge you get a new DV camera.
