Sony TRV240E Digital 8 Camcorder - DEAD!

My Sony TRV240E is completely dead even on mains adaptor, does not record or play and will not eject tape but recharges batteries (with function switch in any position!) Is an internal fuse blown? hoping you can help, thanks, Arnie.

It could very well be a blown fuse, and if you have some experience working inside these devices you can open it up, give it a try, and you might save a little on repair costs. Pull out the power supply board, and look for any obvious burns. Fuses are marked with a prefix PS on sony devices. check if they transfer current, if not - order new ones and see if replacing them solves your problem, or if it spread further. Good luck

The no tape and eject symbols are flashing at the same time.

Those signs means Record tab on tape is ON, eject tape and check record tab and make sure to set it on Record position.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

Sony DCR-TRV145E Digital 8 camcorder - won't play or record.

Fortunately they are still making 8mm camcorders usually running less the $200 to replace. It could be more cost effective to get a new model for that price as well. I couldn't record on my Sony 8mm camcorder anymore after five years of use and over 100 tapes that I had recorded. It's plays back but that's about it.
