Can't access VCR mode
on Jul 29, 2009 at 6:26:12 pm

Hello,

Every time I try to access the VCR mode I am either getting a green screen or a glitch like screen. Regardless of what the screen looks like, I am still not able to use the Menu button in order to move forward.

Any thoughts on what this might be and how to fix it?

Apart from that the camera is working well.

Thanks.
Nick

Turn the camera off, switch to VCR, then back on.

Hey Jeremy,

Thanks for writing back. Unfortunately the only way to get to the VCR menu is by pressing a button (no switch) so I cannot perform that operation when the camera is off.

Are you shooting tape or p2? VCR is confusing me.

Shooting P2. I am trying to access the Thumbnail menu in the VCR Mode but am not able to do so because I am not getting an image when I hit the VCR button.

I don't know what the VCR button is.

You leave the camera in P2 mode (the switch that says P2/tape), you hit the MCR button (above and to the left of the tape tape/switch), then use use the arrows to naviagte the thumbnails.

I am having the same problem, would love to know what's up. I tried updating the firmware and I think I still have the same problem. Anyone got anything ?

What format are you shooting and what are you trying to do?

Shooting in 720p, 24fps - In P2 mode, trying to access the MCR mode to view thumbnails. I don't have a P2 card yet, but I should be able to access the thumbnail mode in MCR whether I have a P2 or not, correct?

Without a P2 card I get a blue screen, then it goes to a green screen. Sometimes I get the thumbnail screen but I get a fuzzy/glitchy screen full of colorful noise.

I have tried using a borrowed P2 card before with the same problems.

You can't view thumbnails without a p2 card. It's impossible as the thumbnails are on it. How are you recording HD with no p2 card? The tape only records dv.
