Did you turn the exposure lock on? That would lock the iris so that it will not adjust for changes in lighting.

I have a Sony Digital Handycam DCR-TRV 140 NTSC from many years ago. It is my fathers and he would like me to back the videos up on the computer, however he does not have any of the software that came with...

Easiest was is to hook camcorder with dvd recorder and burn dvds, make sure to finalize each dvd so it can be playback on any dvd player.
Put dvd in computer and transfer movie files for further editing, if required.
Good luck.

Used trv 9

Any V8 camcorder will play your tapes. Hi 8 will be needed if your recorded in Hi 8 mode.
Sony, Sanyo and Sharp made V8 camcorders. Pioneer made some very nice V8 players!

I am having audio issues with my Sony DCR-TVR900 NTSC Camcorder

If the problem is no audio recorded from the internal microphone, then it has likely failed. See for a simple repair procedure you can do yourself.

Viewing SONY 8mm Tapes -- Please help

The older tapes were shot on a 8mm camcorder and the camcorder you have wil not play them becasue it doesn't have backwards compatability with the older format. The tapes you recorded are on a digital 8 camcorderr and it is different encoding than the one you recorded the other 60 tapes with. You will need to find either a dcr-trv 350 trv 530 trv 730 ect as these have the ability to play all the tapes.
Or find an older 8mm camcorder to play your tapes with.
Hope this helps
