Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV480 Digital Camcorder
I am having a problem with the date/time. When I record, the date and time don't show up. I've set and reset the time and date a million times but it still won't show up on the touch panel or in the view finder. it's there for the first 5 sec when I turn the camera on. It's available on the screen in play/edit mode only. When I capture the video caught, the screen in Adobe Primere says it can't detect the scenes because the date and time were not recorded on the tape. I've been using Hi8 tapes. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!! Thanks.
SOURCE: battery doesnot work
Charge it for a full 16 hours before using it. If it still doesn't work, get it replaced. If that doesn't fix the issue, you have either a charger or camera problem.

this camcorder has a built in rechargeable battery for the memory of the date and time, if you do not use it for more than three months, it will discharge all the way; to recharge, you need to plug camera with ac power for 24 hours and the camera turned off. this should charge the internal battery complete.

You have to set the camera up properly in the menu whilst in video mode. There is a setting in the record menu to enable time and date recording.
