Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV67 Camcorder

Open Question

Sony camcorder stopped working

I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TRV67 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder that has just recently stopped working with the battery. It works fine when plugged in to an AC source. I've had it for about 7 yrs and it has worked perfectly - never a problem. Now before you think, "duh, did you check the battery", I should add that I have 2 lithium batteries that I use interchangably and both stopped holding a charge at the same time. That just seems like too much of a coincidence. They appear to be charging (while in the camcorder) when I plug the camcorder into an AC source, but as soon as I remove the plug and turn on the camcorder, it just makes several "bling-bling" noises and dies. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Can a lithium ion battery be overcharged?

Here's a small FAQ I found: 1) My lithium ion battery is the SONY NP-FP70 Battery Pack. Does the fact that the battery is called a battery pack mean that it has built in circuitry to prevent an overcharge? No. I write with some authority since I've dissected too many and there is no such circuit in the battery. From a system perspective it doesn't belong there. 2) Is there any way of knowing if my SONY BC-TRP charger has the circuitry for preventing an overcharge? You'll have to ask, but the key clues are: a. The documention tells you to not leave it plugged in overnight. b. The battery gets too hot and melts the plastic. 3) If I charge my battery in my camcorder (SONY DCR-HC40), can I assume it has the built in circuitry to prevent an overcharge? a. One can't assume anything. b. But from what I read on that model, you plug it in and forget about it. To do that, it would have a proper charge circuit.

SOURCE: Draining battery

This camera has had problems with the primary switch block faulting. The camera will power up all by itself when unattended and drain the battery. Another symptom would be the battery refuses to charge fully because the camera must remain in the "OFF" mode for the charge process to begin. Sony in Laredo, TX is replacing these controls at little or no cost, I would call them to see if they will repair this for you. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (

error 31:22 means camera mechanism has error in take-up reel section and micro processor isn't receiving reel signal so it shuts down playback/ record function immediately. look into take-up reel section of mechanism.

SOURCE: video transfer from sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 to a computer

The S-video on your computer is for output video (to connect to monitor or TV). Samething for your Cam. You need to have a device video input (USB or PCMCIA) to connect to your computer, and a software (driver that comes with the device) to CAPTURE the video from your Cam.
So you need a hardware and sofware for this. Price now is ~ US$ 40 to > US$100 depending on the brand and quality.

Make sure that the battery is connected right and if it still has a problem try getting a new battery. After a while batteries stop holding their charge and need replacing. batteries can be found online or around 20$.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD TRV211.

If you are asking about CCD-TRV211 camcorder?
CCD-TRV211 is analog Video-8 camcorder so its movie data is not digital and can not be connected directly with computer via USB port.
Best and easiest was is to connect camera with DVD Recorder and burn DVD, this will convert analog movie file into digital data and you can copy it to hard disk of computer.

Transfer of video.

If model number is correct i.e CCD-TRV67, means its analog camera and can't not be connected directly ( USB ) with PC. Suggestion is to record movie on DVD by any DVD-Recorder to get analog signal in digital format. Now you can transfer it in PC.
Hope this info will help you and if you find it helpful, give vote as fixya.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
