    CR500-HD battery replacement

    There used to be a thread about replacing the battery on the CR500-HD with an external (velcro attached) battery from an iPod, but I'll be dammed if I can find it now. Can anyone steer me in the right direction/point me to it's location/title? Thanks.

    Poor (IMO) Video Quality - is it just me?

    The first post in this thread was on Friday, and today (Monday), I received a replacement unit (which does have a sharper picture). That's pretty darn quick service ! Street Guardian definitely know how to treat their customers. I never rec'd that sort of timely, attentive service for any of the...

    Poor (IMO) Video Quality - is it just me?

    Just emailed you both the video and original purchase receipt. It was through you (Pier 28) back in May of 2016 (not as long ago as I thought). I emailed to your old Pier 28 email address as I still had that. I trust that one still works. (PS: thanks jokiin)

    Poor (IMO) Video Quality - is it just me?

    Is the attached frame typical of the SG video quality, or is there something I need to change/adjust? I've had the unit for just over a year, and am happy with it except for the video quality. Its serial number begins with B155 so I believe it is a V2. I'm in Phoenix, AZ so it's almost always...

    Lukas 7900 ACE - ERR1 (& high temps)

    Sounds like the SG9665GC is a good candidate for my next cam. :) I went from a FineVu CR500HD because the battery died after a year, and after they replaced the entire unit because it was still barely under warranty, the battery went again another year later. My kid now has the CR500HD in his...

    Lukas 7900 ACE - ERR1 (& high temps)

    Seems Amazon WAS the way to buy the camera. Just called them to find out who I return it to, seeing as they only take returns for one month, and it was sold by Amazon (no other seller listed on the order). They put me on hold for a few minutes while they called the manufacturer and they come...

    Lukas 7900 ACE - ERR1 (& high temps)

    Thank you and good call. I would have figured this thing for a 90 day warranty but it turns out it's a year and I bought it on Amazon in August, 2014. That'll give me about 3 1/2 months to try to figure out who I have to send it back to. :) I'll bet buying it through Amazon probably wasn't the...

    Lukas 7900 ACE - ERR1 (& high temps)

    Does anyone know what the ERR1 error code is on a Lukas 7900 ACE? It had been acting strangely lately, giving me that error at least once a day, so I just upgraded the firmware to 37 (from 31) and I get the error all the time now. It boots and goes straight to the ERR1. I'm using good quality...

    Problem with the Finevu CR-300HD internal battery

    I purchased my CR-500HD in March of 2013. By July of 2013, the internal battery died but FineVu USA replaced the whole unit for me. Now, a year later, in August of 2014, the internal battery is again dead. After reformatting the card and using CR-500HD_Settings.exe (with the correct date & time)...

    Freezing Cold Blackvue DR500GW-HD

    Yeah, sorry about that highjack of your thread - back on topic. Question: you said in previous posts that you'd re-formatted the card - in both the camera and on your computer (if I read that part correctly). I formatted an 8 GB USB drive on my computer a couple days ago, and it took something...

    Freezing Cold Blackvue DR500GW-HD

    I'll be using a SanDisk Ultra 32 so hopefully I'll only need to reformat once a year at most. Putting something in a manual that tells a purchaser that they need to reformat the SD card once a week can turn some buyers off (it certainly turned me off). It's probably better to say; depending on...

    Freezing Cold Blackvue DR500GW-HD

    Ha, ha - my CR500 will arrive on Tuesday. We'll have to wait and see if you like the BlackVue better or not. That video you posted of the shaking, doesn't look shaky to me. It looks like when you hit a piece of bumpy road, there's a slight vibration but I think that's more like the car shaking...

    Freezing Cold Blackvue DR500GW-HD

    I don't mind formatting the card once in a while (like when I'm reviewing footage) but when the manual states that you need to do it once a week, that's a non-starter for me.

    Freezing Cold Blackvue DR500GW-HD

    So you are telling me that no matter what cam I use, I'm going to have to reformat the card maybe once a month? I find that amazing. I'm a vintage computer buff, and once you format a floppy disk, that's it - you don't have to reformat it unless you want to use it in a different OS or computer...
