Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV68 Camcorder
I have a Sony V6000E Hi8 ( PAL) which was unused for about a year.
When trying to play back tapes the colours were very dark and audio was feint. The viewfinder ( B&W) showed a rapidly rolling picture.
Otherwise the camera has been very reliable.
Headcleaner made no difference.
Any thoughts ?
Cameras from that period are subject to bad capacitors in the video processing section that MAY be the cause of this. I can not state without reservation that this is the cause without seeing the camera in question and looking at the boards. If caught soon enough, replacing the caps will resolve the problem. If not caught, the caps will leak and can destroy some of the traces on the board which will make the camera unrepairable. Please have this unit checked. The caps are not expensive. The repair cost will be mostly labor as it takes time to replace the caps.
