Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV250E Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannot view my videos on TV

I own a Sony DCR-TRV250E, which I bought from the Middle East (NTSC 4.43 and PAL system). Since I moved to Canada (Montreal), I am facing the following problem:

I am unable to hook my Camera to my TV and watch my videos, despite the fact that tried all available television systems (Old, New, LCD, and Plasma…) in vain

Does anyone have a solution to my problem????

You are SOL, unless you invest more than your camera is worth for a TV standards converter!

To have the camera converted to the NTSC standard that we use over here, the cost would be much more than the standards converter and camera are worth together. Nobody would want to take on the project for you.

Another solution would be to bring a TV back from where the camera came from. But, with especialy a TV set there would be some complications with the electrical system over here.

The bottom line is to visit Futureshop and buy a camera that will work on our North American TV standard. But, don't bring the North American camera over to the Middle East. You will have the same problem, but in reverse.

Can I use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes in my DCR_TRV250E?If so would I be able to playback recorded tapes on the UK televisions?.


DCR-TRV250E is a PAL version camera of the Digital8 format.
Yes you can use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes. The camera will record a PAL digital picture on the tapes which means that you can play back the tapes in PAL and therefore you will be able to playback recorded tapes on UK televisions because they are also of the PAL format.

I cannot play my ntsc cassettes on my ntsc tv


You need to get ahold of a video format converter, there are several on the market. Convert the video from pal to ntsc and that will fix you.

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks
