Firewie packed up
Here’s a little problem that occurred yesterday, on Saturday I captured about 5 hours of Mini DV in Firewire, once captured I shut the machine down without checking anything on the timeline.
High Guys, Hope this is the right slot to put this in
Yesterday when I switched the machine on it arrested on a page that normally just flashes up, at the bottom of that page it says “CMOS settings wrong, Press F1 to set up, Press F2 to load default values and continue, well I pressed F2 and everything loaded OK, I then opened Premier and opened the project with the DV I had loaded the day before, on the timeline Video was OK but no Audio, not a sound.
I tried capturing another tape, no sound would capture again, I tried the RCA output from the Camera (Sony TRV 900e) into my Canopus ADV 110 on Analogue and all was well, I captured sound and vision I suspected the Firewire had broken down.
To confirm things I connected the camera to my Laptop in firewire, it Captured all but the Audio, so it looks like the Firewire on the 900 has gone
Now, I am reluctant to try another camera on my editing machine because if there is a problem with the PC did IT damage the camera OR did the camera’s firewire become faulty and damage the PC.
Can anyone offer any thoughts? Has anything lie this happened to you?
It looks like I’m going to have to get someone to look at the editing PC as it still tells you to press F2 to start it.
