My Digital Handycam bought in 2003 has developed a fault where the sound recording is intermittent. my gut feeling is that it is the head. I have tried cleaning it with a cleaning tape. Any ideas?

I have an old Sony CCD TR55E Handycam, I bought from new. Now I want to transfer my tapes to DVD, and seem to have lost sound output playing tapes to TV/Recorder. Tried running tape cleaner, no succes


What is your signal path? The question you need to answer is, "Where are you losing the audio?" Are you losing it between the tape and the playback head, or are you losing it in the cable, or are you losing it at the TV/Recorder?

Does the camera have an audio out into which you can plug ear buds to test the audio from the camera playback?

It sounds like the lens. I know this is actually a problem many people are having with different models of handycams. Try taking a q-tip and use 91% alchohol (rite aid, cvs, walgreens, etc) then clean the lens. Depending this may or may not work. The only permanent solution is to change the lens altogether.

If you've just bought it, take it back to the vendor and request they demonstrate it to your satisfaction.

If they can't because there's a fault, request a replacement or refund under warranty.

Yes, the problem with electronics is the US uses NTSC and most other countries use PAL, it changes how the tape head alignes with the tape. You have to insure the device you have is both (most devices are) so try and get into the menu settings and see if you have a PAL/NTSC video selector option. If so change it to PAL.

My DSC-F707 won't record images.


Sounds like the CCD has developed a fault. I had a F717 which had similar faults but this turned out to be a batch of faulty CCD's which I know the F707 shared. This maybe why Sony are not keen to get involved as it will cost them money. JVC had a similar problem with some of it's Camcorders using a similar CCD and they replaced them FOC even those well out of warranty. Keep trying with Sony and mention the CCD and serial number of the F707 and see if it is one of the faulty batch.
