I had a similar problem with my Sharp camorder.
The preview window on XP simply displays corrupted images.
At the end, I bought a different firewire card and it worked for me.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Can't see how to play Hi8 tapes on this Sony dcr-trv340e pal camera

It's a Digital Hi8. Your tapes are Analog.
But it should play Analog also.
In the menu play with "PB Mode" settings.

SOURCE: I have a Sony DCR-TRV

means its a stuck tape tray or stuck open. But it actually can be one of a few parts on the tape tray. Sony actually wont give out information on this error cause there are so many failures. There are many people however that figured out how to fix this. Its actually a very big problem with sonys and ranges in 300-500$usd to get fixed by sony unless under warranty.
i believe these are the parts that you would need
Here's the part #39;s for mode gear & whole chassis,
Mode gear : X20244611
$4.80
Whole Chassis excluding Drum : A1437006A
$54
Sony Parts: 800-488-7669
and here is a video on someone repairing there sony camera with the same problem.

SOURCE: Hello, I connected my DCR-HC54

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Sony call this "i.Link". Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. According to a list on the Sony site, your particular model is not one that can use USB for video transfers to computer.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

I HAVE A SONY DCR TRV25E AND AM UNABLE TO RECORD THERE IS NO PICTURE APPEARING ON THE LCD SCREEN OR VIEW FINDER BUT WHEN YOU PLAY BACK TAPE U STILL GET SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


Sounds like its fried, there is probably not a fix for the problem that will not cost more than the camcorder.It could be the power converter on the device, a voltage regulator or capacitor might have gone thus cutting power the certain parts of the device like the screen and CCD.

I want to transfer video from sony Digital Video Camera Recorder DCR/TRV25E to my Macbook Pro. The camcorder uses Mini DV and I have a USB connection between the camcorder & Mac. Please let me know...


Hi - It's pretty easy. You would use the I.Link (Sony calls it) connector which is actually fire wire. So you would need a fire wire cable (about five dollars or so) between the camera and Mac, load up the built in Imovie software and you'll be ready to go.
Here's a link to a good video tutorial demonstrating the process.

The no tape and eject symbols are flashing at the same time.


Those signs means Record tab on tape is ON, eject tape and check record tab and make sure to set it on Record position.

Sony camcorder


condensation is the situation where a sensor detects presence of moisture inside that is hazardous to the gadget, this will not be removed if no air flow can get inside, best way is to open any side and blow hot air inside. Not hot that can damage some parts.

Tape rejection - droplet symbol shown


Hi there, the small water type symbol means that the internal dew sensor is activated. Please use the fan (low temperature) or leave it in a warm place for some time. If you need more info please advice.
