I can't get the date/time to show during playback

I have set the date/time options to ON and when recording it shows them on the screen but I can't see them when I am playing back the tape. I even have the owner's manual in front of me and can't get it to work This is super urgent for me as it's for a training certification and i have to upload the tape by may 4th for review or i'm kicked out. that's my pitiful plea...

Even in your playback mode you have to activate the date/time options.

Time date stamp dcr trv140. I have this model. The date does not show in the view screen or on the audio output. Just wondered if any did on this model. Maybe I have a cheaper model.

From the 'Operating Instructions' manual:
"The recording date and time are not displayed while recording. however, they are recorded automatically onto the tape. To display the
recording date and time, press DATA CODE on the Remote Commander (remote control) during recording."

My hd 3 v5061u is on test mode how do i get it off

With your camcorder powered ON, and set to VCR / playback, there should show on the screen (viewer) something indicating "Menu" or a "FN" (Function) option. Select "Menu" (or Function icon to lead to the Menu). Check through the Menu options to find "Mode", and find the option for Normal Recording or playback, as opposed to "Test Mode", or "Demonstration Mode".

If this does not solve the problem, try this: Turn the camera OFF, remove camera battery, re-install battery, turn camera ON and see if that Re-set the camera. If not, it might be resolved by manually resetting the time and date. Then go to the Menu again to set Mode to normal recording or playback.

If those do not correct the problem, there is no shame in calling the camera company to speak with Tech-services. That's what they are there for.

Time/Date stamp doesn't show up...

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.

I can't keep writeing out of recordings and during playback.

Set the M, A, Off, and Play switch to M with a loaded tape. DO NOT touch the Refresh button. Press the Vol switch down one time, this will get you a Top Menu Page on the display screen. Use the Vol wheel to move about in this Menu page. Press the Vol switch again will let you into the different settings.

Turning off recordng message.

You can turn the display off during playback mode, however, if the display was on during recording, that cannot be turned off. . 1. Press the DISPLAY button on the left side panel. 2. Each press of the button toggles the OSD function on and off. When you turn the OSD off : * In CAM mode: The STBY, REC, EASY.Q modes are always displayed on the OSD, even when the OSD is turned OFF and the key input is displayed for 3 seconds then turned off. * In PLAYER mode: When you press any Function button, the function is displayed on the OSD for 3 seconds before it turns off. Turning the DATE/TIME on/off * The DATE/TIME is not affected when the OSD function is switched ON or OFF. * To turn the DATE/TIME on or off, access the menu and change the DATE/TIME mode.
