This small back-up battery on my Sony is under the main big power battery, it is like a large screw under the main power pack, I just turn that screw and the little round lid comes off to get to the little silver flat back-up one.
They are readily available from most good camera shops like Jesops for around £12 to £15 each.

This worked for me: With camera power on, push RESET (located left of the rec button in the main panel).

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

usb streaming is not supported by your new windows OS,reason usb driver is not available. for ilink or ieee1394 connection it should be a plug-and-play connection. no setting in the camera enables or disables ilink output and an ilink driver for the camera is not needed to support this connection (not unless you need to update or reinstall your ieee1394 device driver to get it to work). check this solution link: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.docmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C86798&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_KNOWLEDGEARTICLES_1_1&dialogID=157560925&stateId=1200%20157576924
hope you can get to establish connection.thanks:)

Hi,
I'm afraid, its mechanical problem in your DCR-TRV30 camcorder and visual check is necessary to inspect mechanism function properly to diagnose problem.
Beeping and displaying error sign is an indication that camera got problem for some reason and there are many possible causes for that like capstan motor is not rotating or rotating on fast speed, video head motor is not spinning, any loading gear got broken, above said motors are not getting power etc etc.
Take your camcorder in nearest local camera repair shop to diagnose problem.
Thanks.

IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AROUND THE FRONT OF YOUR CAMERA THERE ARE SEVERAL SCREWS, ABOUT 4 I THINK,
1) 1 ON BASE
2) 1 ON THE LEFT LOOKING AT FROM THE FRONT
3) AND 2 INSIDE THE FLASH CASE
REMOVE THESE SCREWS AND THEN YOUR FOCUS RING AND SOME OF THE CASE SHOULD COME OFF
INSIDE THE FOCUS RING YOU SHOULD SEE 3 SREWS IF NOT CHECK THE CAMERA TO SEE IF THEY HAVE FALLEN INSIDE,
IF NO JOY YOU CAN REPLACE THE 3 MISSING SCREWS AND PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER
