Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I was wondering if there were color bars on the DCR-TRV70, also I wanted to know why my TRV70 submits jerky video when Iam transferring video to my PC is it my hardrive or is it the camera. Every time I try to transfer video via the firewire cable the video skips frames causing the finished video to skip frames, it looks similar to a jump cut.
the head may be dirty, clean it by using a cleaning cassete, maybe its playing but can not produce a clear picture, not able to produce a clear picture would automatically change the display to blue.

You need to get a Digital to Analogue converter such as the Canopus ADVC110 A/D Converter. (circa $225). There may be cheaper alternatives. (you might also be able to use a digital camcorder that has a built in Analogue to digital converter):
Canopus 77010150100 ADVC110 Converter
The Canopus comes with a 6-pin firewire cable. Since your Dell Studio has a 4 pin Firewire (actually called iLink) you will also need a 6-pin to 4-pin cable or an adapter:
Firewire 6-PIN To 4-PIN Cable
Cables To Go - 27028 - Firewire 6-Pin Female 4-Pin Male Adapter
You hook your Sony up to the A/D converter with audio and video cables (usually supplied with your camcorder) and hook the converter to you Dell with a firewire cable. Then you capture the video using some video capture software. I don't know what comes with windows these days.

Tips for a great answer:
Error code 31:22 indicates a fault in the tape transport system can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a dislodged pinch roller, a faulty rotary mode switch or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and will require disassembling the camera to repair. This can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a really user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
