Records sound but no picture

I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 that we didn't use very often, approximately 10 hours recorded. All was fine the last time I used it but now I see no picture through the viewfinder or screen when recording. Playback has sound but no picture.

    I have the same problem listed above. We never really used the camera very much, less than 10 hrs. It worked fine when we put it away and would not record the next time. We get no picture on the lcd screen or the view finder but it will record sound. This problem first accured about two years ago and when we could not figure it out we put it away and haven't tried since.

I have a similar camcorder Sony for about 3 years. it was working beautifully until last week. All of a sudden, everything I want to see from the viewfinder became blurry and colors are faded away. A lot of tiny dots submerged in a ocean.

There are two possible problem of your check the iris of the camera if it is opening,you will see it went you look inside the lens when you turn on camera mode....and if you see that the iris is opening...the second may be the ccd image sensor......if that is the problem you have no choice but to go the sony service for replacing the ccd image sensor...

Yes It Is Possible.
1. Cable options you can use S-video or RCA.
2. VHS payer that has a recording option. Make sure that it supports the Sony Handycam 8mm.
3. The procedure on how to transfer the 8mm to VHS is the same as how you view your video on the TV.
4. S-video or RCA should be connected on the Handycam and the other end is on the TV.

5. You can follow the instruction on page 27 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37)
6. You can also follow page 52 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 )

Erasing the tape on a sony handycam vision please

Well the cheapest way is to go into record mode, cap the lens with the black lens cap and record a 'black' picture on the tape. This will erase all the pictures on the tape and leave you with a 'black' screen on the whole tape.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 Code C:31:10

it is whats called moisture condensation. this happens when the camera goes from a cold to a hot environment very quickly, and vice versa. Simply leave the camera standing with the tape door open for about an hour, and then try again. If this does not fix it, then try cleaning the video heads, and make sure the camera is not in a humid environment, as this will also cause this to happen.

Very unclear picture when in camera mode

This problem has been answered and solved. It's a defect which Sony will fix. Go to their web site and service /support should explain what the problem looks like and that (if your problem really is the same) they will fix it free including shipping. I've done it already on my CCD-TRV318.
