I came across this forum while searching for a resolution to my camera problem.
My Samsung Mini DV camera has had motor noise from the word go but not enough to really effect any of my footage.
Recently however it has gotten excessively louder and the noise dominates anything I record and I mean everything! If I leave the camera off for a few days it fades off but comes back within 20 or so mins when recording. Could anyone suggest a remedy to this problem?
