Use the Dub video feature. This will work if the source is not copy protected. Make sure you have a writable (or rewritable) DVD with sufficient space available in the DVD tray (closed) and put your tape to dub in the VCR.
Press Setup on the remote and navigate down (up/down arrows) to Recording and press OK. Then select Dubbing Mode in the next menu level and press OK. When the Option menu opens, highlight VCR to DVD and press OK. Press Setup to exit this menu. Choose a recording mode using REC MODE on the remote. Press Play and then Pause when you reach the point where you want to start the recording (press quickly if you want to dub the whole tape; you will lose a few seconds while the dubbing starts so include 5 seconds extra if starting later in the tape). Then press Dubbing on the remote. The duplication will start. Press Stop when you reach the end of the section to record.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (only the Setup and Rec Mode buttons do not have a matching button on the front of the unit. The later steps (setting up the start point, starting the Dub and stopping it) can be done with the remote or the buttons on the unit.)
means its a stuck tape tray or stuck open. But it actually can be one of a few parts on the tape tray. Sony actually wont give out information on this error cause there are so many failures. There are many people however that figured out how to fix this. Its actually a very big problem with sonys and ranges in 300-500$usd to get fixed by sony unless under warranty.
i believe these are the parts that you would need
Here's the part #39;s for mode gear & whole chassis, Mode gear : X20244611 $4.80 Whole Chassis excluding Drum : A1437006A $54 Sony Parts: 800-488-7669 and here is a video on someone repairing there sony camera with the same problem. if you need further assistance i will be here to help you, thank you and good luck.
You need a set of RCA AV dubbing cables (available at fine electronics
stores everywhere), and a couple VCRs. Plug the cables into the "A/V
Out" jacks on the back of the VCR that will be playing, and into the
"A/V In" jacks on the VCR that will record.
Also on the recording
VCR, use a regular coaxial cable to attach it to a television.
set the TV to 3, fire up the VCR's, and set the recording VCR's TV/VCR
toggle to VCR. Also on the one that is recording, set the channel to
"INPUT" or "AUX" or something like that. (You're telling it to record
what it sees coming from the jacks you plugged the cables into.) Then
hit Play on the other machine. You should be able to see your tape
playing back. If you do, you have followed these directions correctly,
and you're ready to make your dub.
HINT: The first few feet of
tape are often prone to dropout and generally sucking. Record a minute
of black before making your dub. Mark this on the tape or tell them when
you turn it in. They will be impressed.
you can transfer to DV tape only by using software like Edius 6 or a similar one.
First you download the p2 card on the hard drive and then you use this program to convert the video file to DV and use the camcorder as recorder connecting to pc via firewire .
1. Insert a blank DVD disc in the DVD deck and close the disc tray. 2. Insert the VHS video tape you wish to copy into the VCR deck. 3. Find the place on the VHS tape from which you want to start dubbing using the PLAY, FF, REW and PAUSE functions. For best results, pause playback at the point from which you want to record. 4. Press the DUBBING button on the Remote Control or DUB on the front panel. The Dubbing menu appears. 5. Use the arrow keys to select the desired Record Mode: EP, LP, SP or XP. 6. Select [Dubbing] then press ENTER or DUBBING to start copying. 7. To stop dubbing at any other time, press STOP (x). Dubbing will stop automatically when the VHS tape ends.
Audio Dubbing on DV:
Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output.
Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings.
Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
