Humming noise while recording
When I out a tape in and turn the camera on, I get a loud humming noise - it drowns out the sound that I should be capturing during the recording. I have tried different tapes and get the same results. The hum is louder as the camera is tilted. When I set it on a tripod, it seems to be the most quiet, but still it is loud enough to make recording sound impossible. I also get this hum when I turn the camera to the VCR mode. It does not occur when I turn on the camera and don't have a tape in. Thanks.
