Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR515 Camcorder

Sony Handycam CCD-TR580E will not rewind

My tr580 will operate perfectly as expected once started from cold and occasionally will allow a rewind, but mostly once it's been used for a while, any attempt to rewind will result in some beeping and an eject message. From then on you have a 1 in 10 chance that the play button might work, so you can then continue to watch but have no opportunity to rewind. I presume from previous similar experience with my Canon E60 that some capacitors may have given up? Any help would be appreciated. regards, Kev.

Hello Phalphy, capacitors are OK. The trouble is in the mechanism. Please contact your nearest Sony Service. Best regards, Arpad

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:

This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

How do I erase a hi8 tape on a sony ccd trv318 camcorder

Don't think you can erase it, just record over it.
If you really have to erase something you don't want on it, you can always rewind and then put on the lense cap and record.

Won`t Rewind

Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!

Player - rewind malfunction

I have a trv-58 with the same problem. One way is to press play and rewind while in play mode.Getting back to the first of the tape is a chore.
