I now its a long shot and I realise that the above is akin almost to the zx spectrum but I wonder if anybody can help me.
I want to transfer all my cassettes onto disc but when I tried the camcorder it would not work .
The power switches off after about 30 secs and then will not come back on for at least an hour.
In an attempt to fix it I purchased another similar model for peanuts with the hope that I could use it for spare parts but it also has similar problems.
I should add that I have not used the camcorder for years.
Could the problem just be condensation and if so what should I do to correct it.
As you have now gathered I am no expert on these matters and I would be grateful for any advice.
I just need to recover what is on the cassettes.
Thanks in anticipation
