Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV310E Camcorder

1 Answer

Playback on the LCD is good but not on the TV

Hi, we are having problems with playback. I have never been able to get this to work. On the LCD display, the picture is fine but on the TV, the picture has a bunch of horizonal scrolling lines. I tried using a different A/V cable but got the same results. I don't have an S-Video cable to try. Do I need to clean the heads or is there some other problem?

Thanks,
Scott

    Hi, I got the cleaning tape and solution yesterday and I ran it twice but I still have the same problem. Do you have any other suggestions?

    The picture on the LCD is perfect regardless of how I move it, no lines, good color, etc. Moving the LCD screen does not affect the TV picture quality. I get a picture on the TV, sort of. It's black and white and has 4 or 5 horizonal lines moving through the screen.

    I don't think so. I tried two different pairs of A/V cable so it's not the cables and the jacks on the TV work fine for the Playstation, etc.

    The camera has the 3 outputs (yellow video, and red/white audio). It also has an S-Video output as well. I don't have an S-Video cable but I could try that if you think the result would be different from the A/V outputs.

Try cleaning the heads first and see if that makes a difference.

    That usually takes care of that symptom.  If you rock the LCD screen back and forth, does the picture quality change?

    Is it possible that the AV jacks in the back of your tv have a short in them?

    Is the connection to the camcorder a mini jack or an RCA plug?

    Try SVideo if you can.  If your close to a Best Buy if it isn't working, you might want to take into Geek Squad and have them plug it into a monitor and see what happens.

Sony CCD-TRV65. Blue screen during playback


Just bought the exact one from a yard sale for 20 bucks. Had the very same problem with the blue screen on playback. What i did is replace the battery in the small bay when you open the viewfinder. Try playing your tape again and it will work!

Hi, i have a sony z1...


Hi,
I assume that you can see live view to record on mini dv cassette but can't see recorded image in playback.

Let me know when you playback mini dv cassette, does time counter run time intervals or stays blank on LCD / eye finder?

If this happens, you have dirty / clogged video heads in camera and need to use good quality mini dv head cleaning cassette to clean heads. This will resolve problem.

Need further help, let me know please.
Thank you.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40


You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.

the problem is with the video head. either it's dirty or broken. if cleaning tape is not solving the problem then i fear you have to get the head changed. an expensive repair.

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.

There is a switch on the LCD pivot that detects which way the LCD is being viewed from. Check this switch.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)

Select the correct color system in your tv. probably the system which was selected in your tv did not match that of your video cam. good luck!
