Problem with lcd screen DCR-TRV260

When I turn on my camcorder, the lcd screen shows the clock setting and menu upside down. And, when I'm recording it's upside down. However, when I turn the lcd screen around the other way (facing the audience), it shows rightside up. What can I do to fix the problem? Also, the SEL/PUSH EXEC dial is not working properly. When I go to set the clock and push in the SEL/PUSH EXEC dial, it won't set (I can push the dial in, it just won't set it. What can I do to fix the problem? Thank You, Sherry

SOURCE: menu select dial problem

It will not let me out of the title area. The menu will only show me the option under the different headings but will not go to the format section nor other sun sections. Have tried a new memory stick and get the fast blinking error with the new one too.

i have (or probably had) the same problem. Try this - there is a small reset button on the left side panel of the camcorder. While the set is on VCR model press this and keep pressed for 30 seconds or so. The corrected image should return and probably the problem would go away. I tried this by chance and the problem doesn't seem to recur.

good luck.

I have another problem though:
In my Sony DCR-TRV27 - A part of the left side console buttons do not work - the tape controls (REW, FF, STOP, PAUSE, PLAY) work alright. The Memory Stick controls seem to work alright. But, pressing the Menu button does not bring any menu display on the screen. Similarly, the scrolling wheel on the front seems not working. A couple of years back the moisture went inside (I went to Niagara falls!). For few weeks whole of the panel wasn't working but now most of it works. But I cannot get the Menu option work. I would be glad to hear if you have any other suggestions / advises. thanks for your time,

Depending on what type of connector your computer has, you will need to get a firewire cable (also known as IEEE-1394a cable). The connector on your camcorder is a 4-pin connector. You will either have that same looking connector on your computer (some laptops now have the 4-pin connector) or a 6-pin connector (D shaped). 884068d.jpg This picture is of a 4-pin (right side of pic) to 6-pin (left side of pic) cable. These are available at many electronic stores and online. To be safe, have your camcorder powered off when connecting to the computer. Once you have connected the cables, turn your camcorder on and insert the tape that you would like to transfer. Your computer should recognize it and install the appropriate driver. Most computers have some sort of free video editing program (like Windows Movie Maker). Depending on the software, you may have the option to import the entire video tape or only parts.

Hope this has helped you.

Blue screen on playback. No picture and no sound...

Blue screen indicates no signal. Rewind the tape or make a recording to check it's not something this simple.

Hello, I have the sony dcr-trv260 and it will play back video and sound, and record sound, but will not record video. It is just black in both the lsd screen and the smaller one.

Did you examine to see if the lens cover is on?
If it is on remove it. If it is off,you need to go in the menu and select record instead of play.

How can I turn up the volume during playback? I do realize that during recording, the subject was some distance from the camera.

On the lcd screen, touch "P-Menu, then touch "volume" and use the up/down arrows to adjust...if it isn't there, use the menu button and choose the "standard set"option. Use the +/- buttons and then choose "ok".---Rick

Images on LCD are upside down.

You have to go to settings and adjust from there...find LCD settings and that should do it.

Camera will not record

Contact Sony at 1-800-222-7669.  Mine was doing the same thing and it is a weak link in the DCR-TRV460 and DCR-TRV260.  They are sending me a shipping label and say they will fix it for free.
