Question about Ulead Videostudio 8 for PC

1 Answer

There is no playback picture viewing a recording.

I have a Sony Video 8 Handycam and am trying to playback a recording that was made by a different Sony Video 8 Handycam, but there is no picture being displayed. I can playback a recording I made and the other person can playback the recording he made, but I can't playback the recording he made. Is it not possible for me to playback something that was recorded on the other Handycam? If I should be able to, what do I need to do?

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 won't display picture.

This sounds like the LCD and CCT in the Lens is dead, not a cheap repair if this is the case, pop it to a camera shop like Jessops.

No picture displayed on lcd (blank)

Does your camera playback old recordings fine? and just can't show live view to record?
If yes, then camera has problem of bad ccd imager and this part will be replaced.
Sony announced free of cost repair scheme for subject problem. DCR-HC20E is PAL system camera so Sony Support UK can be visited for free of cost repair details as your camera model is listed there.
If you live in different country, let me know to guide you further.
Thank you.

Cannot view playback!!!!

First thing to determine is if your (Playback Mode) is set for Auto or Hi 8 / 8. Select VTR setting and then select Menu. Scroll to PB Mode and select Auto. Now try playback.

Rolling of picture

You camera is PAL and you are attaching with Ntsc TV or VCR. Both Pal and Ntsc are different systems and incompatible to each other.
If you want to see correct playback of your Camera, it requires Pal or Multi-System color TV.
Need further info, please let me know.

Why wont it play LP taped tapes?

Tracking is very sensitive on hi-8 tapes in LP mode. This recorder will record and playback in LP mode. It is however recommended that if you record in LP mode that you use the same camera to play it back, that it was recorded with, or you might have problems.
Also from what I can find online, the TR427 is just an video8 camera not a Hi-8 so if you are trying to play Hi-8 tapes on it, it won't play right.
