Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV245 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder
Upon loading a new tape, my camcorder (already a few years old) started to go wrong: it did not seem to recognise a tape had been inserted and would therefore not record. Tried changing the tape / topping up the battery / playing an old tape but only managed to jam the tape case and now I cannot even close the body of the camera and the tape just juts out. Anybody had the same problem please? J

SOURCE: not reading Hi8 tapes
Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
