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

Playing DV footage that was recorded on a different camera


Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.

Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.

Pixelly Connection via USB; Choppy Video/Audio


You can use a white copier paper to clean the head drum.But be careful not to apply the same and gently swipe the drum along while you hold the paper on the drum. Besides if it does not improve change the drum completely.For orignal spares you can contact us and you need a good repair center.
