Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV530 Digital Camcorder

Humming noise while recording

When I out a tape in and turn the camera on, I get a loud humming noise - it drowns out the sound that I should be capturing during the recording. I have tried different tapes and get the same results. The hum is louder as the camera is tilted. When I set it on a tripod, it seems to be the most quiet, but still it is loud enough to make recording sound impossible. I also get this hum when I turn the camera to the VCR mode. It does not occur when I turn on the camera and don't have a tape in. Thanks.

    The unit has never been dropped or handled roughly - I usually use it with a tripod. I am wondering about the cable you refer to - and storage with the battery still attached. There was a time when I didn't use it for several months and the battery was still on it. Any suggestions for either of these?

Loud Humming Noise


Samsung is notorious for having the motor on the color wheel burn out. If the color on the tv starts to fade or shift tones when the rev'ing or noise is happening then you'll know its the color wheel. There are only two moving parts in this set, the color wheel and the fans. If you're smelling something, it could be either. Take the back off the set and put a piece of tape on the lamp door switch and turn the set on. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise. If its a fan, no big deal, Radio shack should have a replacement. If it sounds like its comming from under the set, dig a little deeper and try unhooking the color wheel motor, not as easy as I am making it sound but either way the fan is about $20 to fix and the color wheel is about $100. Sure beats a $400 tech bill. If you get stuck, comment back and I'll send pictures of the dismantle.
