Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video


Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

I had the same problem with the DCR-TRV250 where it just stopped playing back tapes. It appeared to be recording correctly but upon playing it back, all I got was the blue screen. I tested the USB, SVideo, and DV outputs and got the same blue screen.

After weeks of deliberating, I finally decided to try cleaning the heads and that cured it! I removed the screws that allowed me to remove the transport assembly cover, which made it easier to reach the heads with a Qtip. I cleaned them using rubbing alcohol and everything seems fine now.
