Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV120BT Digital Camcorder
I have the same problem that I see has already been submitted. The solution says to turn power off and go through a "reboot" of the camera and tape loading. I have done this a hundred times in the last 3 days. The solution also mentions the "S" reel on page 9 of the service manual. I don't have a service manual and don't want to spend $30 on line to buy one. Can anyone tell me what is the proper repair? BTW, I install the tape in the "camera off" mode. I switch to "VTR" to play the tape plays for a split second. then locks up. I have to switch the camera to off and then eject to get the tape out.
T reel and S reel have some defects. Need replacement and no other way to resolve this. Pl.take your camera to a near by service center. This calls for high level skills. If you need spares do let me know.
