I have a mini dv camcorder (MV750i) and a vhs tape recorder (Sony SLV-F900 UX). I am trying to record from my vhs recorder onto my mini dv cam.
I have been following the instructions in the instruction manual (page 81) but can't get the camcorder to receive an image on the camcorder screen.
I am connecting the camcorder to the vhs player using the STV-250N stereo video cable provided via a scart adapter similiar to the PC-A10 Scart adapter but which has a switch to allow input and output. (i believe the PC-A10 Scart Adapter is output only)
Under the vcr setup on the camcorder menu, i have selected av*dv out = on and then pressed rec pause button. if i then press play the top right hand of the screen states REC which it good.
However, the camcorder screen is blue and i think that it should be showing the images that are playing on the vhs player.
Have you any suggestions please as I have tried everything that I can think of and I need to transfer some vhs video to mini dv?
