please please please help playing faulty mini dv tape
Hi can anyone help me.
I did some filming over the weekend and I used a hand held camera and a another camera on a tripod to shoot for another angle. My plan is to use the sound from the main camera I was holding over the cuts I make to the other camera on the tripod. Anyway in a nutshell please help me someone.
The other camera on the tripod was not mine, and seems like the camera head were either damaged or need cleaning and I cant play the tape.
The werid thing is when I was pressing record on the camera, it was recording, it was coming up in big red text on the view finder, and didnt say there was a problem as most digital cameras do., Put when I played the tape in my camera, I get a pure while screen with little pixelated squareds dotted about the place and no sound?
Please tell me someone has over come this before? I have searched the fourms for similiar problems and what I was typing into the search didnt produce the results I want. Is there anything to clean the mini dv tape with?
I have no way of getting the chance to film this again without it costing me and thats moeny I dont have, the footage is there, I just need to play it.
Please somebody help and thanks in advance
