Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
Hi, I've had many problems with getting my video camera to work properly. It used to be the minor case of "reinsert the cassette", but than it escalated to becoming so frequent that once I managed to get it working again, previously recorded videos would get distorted perminantly, such as the image becoming "blocky." The sound would also get messed up. It will cut in and out constantly. Even after I had tried using a head cleaner multiple times, the screen would read "Dirty video head. Use a cleaning cassette." I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me out here. -Brandon
I have been searching for a solution to the same exact problem for a long time. I just found this site recently and it has confirmed what I needed to know: 1. Buy a head cleaner to clean off the head (which records and such) 2. (If 1 Doesn't Work) Don't bother getting it fixed by a business (as opposed to a friend who would try fixing it for free) because they will charge $200 to $250 for it when it only costs around $270 from Sony now. So trash the camcorder and buy a new one. That's all I know of.
