DVW 700 is stuck with the test "ramp" turned on
on Jul 25, 2011 at 9:07:56 pm

I'm trying to keep an older DVW-700 Digibeta camcorder alive for some friends of mine. Their camera seems to be stuck with the test ramp enabled and there seems to be no way to turn it off. When accessed thru the setup menu, the function doesn't seem to work. The ramp remains on whether the menu feature is set to either on or off. The switch inside the camera is set to "User" and not "ENG" as well. Everything else seems to be working OK. It will show bars when they are selected. It attempts to both white and black balance. I've used the ramp before when setting up some gamma settings for them but this time it won't switch back to video output rather than the test ramp mode. The camera shows "CAM?" at the top of the viewfinder. It's a weird one. Any ideas out there?
