20 Most Recent Sony Handycam DCR-TRV900E Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

Did you try resetting the camera by turning it off, taking out the battery and removing any other source of power? Try this first to hard reset the camera.

Does the optical viewfinder function or is it also blue?

Hopefully hard resetting will solve your problem but if not then there may be an electronics fault in your camera.
