Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV520 Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Poor video and choppy audio

Video has lines going through it. Audio cuts in and out and is very fragmented. May have been coincidence, but this only appeared to start happening after the camera went though airport security x-ray machine.

    Thanks......I thought airport x-ray was not supposed to fry digital electronics. I have taken other items through (plus this camcorder) w/o incident in the past.

This problem is caused by misalignment of the entry and exit guide posts that feed the tape around the rotating head drum. It's fairly straight forward to have these aligned using a test tape and an oscilloscope. This work needs to be done by a professional but should take less than an hour for someone with service manual.

It could've fried it or it could be the memory card

Choppy sound


If all media players are closed, Open the Control Panel> Sounds> open, click on configure, test. Any Problem? Now when you say "choppy sound" The audio is on what, using what? With limited info it's difficult to give a informed solution. FOR INSTANCE, I was watching a movie/music, online video, youtube....etc. with (your software) and the sound was choppy. Or, I was on IE and watching a Video, music, etc. Lets say you open Itunes and play a song, sound is choppy?

Choppy Video? What do you mean choppy video? Is the video starting and stopping rather than playing continuous? If so, either you need more memory or the site you are watching the video from is slow. Also sometimes you line speed on the computer might be slow if you are watching the video online.

How does the video play if you played a DvD in your computer? If it plays the DvD without stalling, then your problem is more than like the site you are watching or the line speed as you stream the video.

Using camera with skype


This is most likey because of bandwidth issues.
If you turn off your camera and audio works fine then it's most likely you haven't got enough grunt to push Video and audio down the line. You can find internet sites out there that can test your internet speed, if it comes back with poor results then talk to your ISP or look for another Internet Service Provider

Choppy sound and video on laptop


Unfortunately your video card memory is probably lacking. And/or your settings are set too high for your processor to handle. Right click on your desktop, goto properties, goto settings, and select for best perfomance then apply.

CD's play simple audio files. DVD's and games play large video files and large audio files that are choppy on older systems. you may need to upgrade your memory. Make sure you delete all you dont use, run disk cleanup. REstart. Run, disk defrag, Restart.

A good test is goto : www.belarc.com or belarcadvisor.com

They will tell you if yoursystem is uptodate.

Good luck!

You may just be running a older processor?
