Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
When I played any tape, the tape stops every 2 seconds and restarts. It is chopped. I played various tapes so it's not the tape. I've rebooted the camera. I've run the camera with AC instead of batterie but problem still persist
You didn't say whether you tried cleaning the heads or not. This sounds like the problem you get when the video head can't read the information continuously. If you are capable of cleaning the heads with the proper cleaner (not a tape, they don't work) I would suggest trying that first. If you are not capable take it to a repair shop. The video head assembly is very fragile and can be broken very easily if you don't know what you are doing. They should be able to clean it for about $50.00 US. Good luck.
