SOURCE: SCL860 Hi8 Samsung Camcorder wont turn on or charge

I don't know if this will help at all but I have had to push the adapter into the camera further than my initial try before it would start charging. Check to see if you can push it in any further.

Play back pre recorded HI8 tapes on my TRV130?


The Sony DCR-TRV130 is a D8 digital camcorder which is not compatible with Hi8 camcorders.
You need to have an Hi8 camcorder or DCR-TRV103 or similar camcorders that backward compatible with Hi8 camcorders.

You can shoot subjects such as a sleeping baby from up to 10 feet away in total darkness. With the optional HVL-IRC NightShot light, you can even capture images from up to 100 feet away. Sony's Stamina power management system and InfoLithium battery give the TRV318 incredible operating time.

How do I transfer hi 8 tapes to DVD without the working camcorder


Greetings jamhere,

I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape


ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.

Tape compatibility question.


Yes. Hi8 camcorders are manufactured to work with 8mm or Hi8 tapes. The difference is the quality of the tape. 8mm tapes will provide about 270 lines of resolution where a Hi8 tape will provide up to 400. For better quality recordings, you'll want to use Hi8 tapes.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.
