Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV250 Digital Camcorder
During playback picture and sound stop and go, like the tape is "sticking" . Happens with all tapes. The same tapes play normally in another (TRV 280) camcorder.Please advice
I was having the same problem and after reading Joe's answer, I decided to see if I could free the drum motor brush of whatever rust or contamination was under it. I recorded for awhile and then fast forwarded and reversed some. It worked!!!! Thanks Joe. Rick

The drum motor in this camcorder has a earth brush assy which makes contact with the lower portion of the motor removing static charges from the video head assy. This brush becomes contaminated and looses contact with the drum motor which causes the "stuttering" effect you're seeing in the video. This problem can only be resolved by a qualified service tech., it requires complete disassembly of the unit too gain access to the drum motor. Hope this explains what is going on.
