Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV900E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

No sound on new recordings

When I make a new recording I do not get any sounds.If one listens very carefully there is a minute sound in the background.Playback of older tapes are OK.If I make a follow-on recording on one of these tapes it records with no sound. Selecting Stereo 1 or 2. Audio SP1 or SP2 or maximum Manual Mike recording level all have no effect. Picture quality is great.

No sound when playback or after finalized

Perhaps the microphone was muted while you were making the original recording? Have you tried playing back a new recording with the microphone active?

I hooked up my sony handycam to my dvd recorder & recorded it on a dvd. While it was recording it had sound (hooked up to the tv) but the recorded dvd does not have any sound.

your dvd recorder should be compatible with dolby digital 5.1 surround sound because that what camcorder uses. you can try to switch audio recording on camcorder to stereo.

How do I use 2 mics for the XL2 simultaneously?

Hi, on the left side of the camera you can set 'audio monitor'. Default is channel 1/2. You can choose to listen to 3/4 or 1/2 and 3/4 simultaneous.
In the menu of the cam you can set between 12 bit audio recording or 16 bit. 16 bit only records on channel 1/2 (the front mic). In 12 bit mode you can record audio on 4 channels.
hope this answers a bit of your question

Sound Recording problem

Don't know if your problem exactly like mine, but playing back recordings in the camera always have weak sound. However when editing the clips using Imagemixer 3 on your computer, the sound is louder and you can boost it even further with the "Adjust Volume" function of Imagemixer.

Image and sound problems at playback

your tape guides are out of calibration on all your pre - recorded tapes , or they are out of adjustment ( maybe even loose ) now ; - - put your camcorder close , next to your ear ? and . . . listen ! to a new tape in play mode - if you hear a fluttering sound like a deck of cards being shuffled softly , the camera is damaging all your tapes and needs alignment ;

Vertical lines while recording Canon zr100 camcorder

I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. Let me know how it goes.
