SOURCE: how to change language for

I have compared its instruction manual in English and Japanese versions and found that the language setting part is absent in Japanese version. So that the japanese version will support only japanese.
I have asked the seller in Bic Camera shop (in Japan) and he tried to change the language in the menu, but unfortunately he could't find and change it.

SOURCE: languages for dcr-hc30 ?

I might have a solution...

Switch on the handycam.
In the bottom left corner there will be two rectangles with writing. Click on right one.
There are two arrows on the left side on the screen. Go down to the third menu (3/3) by tapping the bottom arrow two times.
There should be 5 boxes with writing in them. One of them may say Language, click on it. It is the one to 1 right and 1 bottom of the first information box.
Select the box under the first information box. The one you should choose should say ENGLISH on it.
Done! I hope...

Sorry if this does not help.

Software Sony HDR-TG1 Japanese version change to english


If the camera came from Japan, there will be no english in the camera. If the camera had English before, you could try to switch the language back, by using the manual and count lines in the menus, to "feel" what part of the menu you are. (Setup menu)

Change language from japanese to english on NEX-5N


You absolutely cannot select any other language on Japanese domestic SONY models. The professional line up of camcorders come with an English selection in the menu, but not the consumer models.
Suggestions by well intentioned but ill-informed people to follow the menu in the English user guide, will not get you anywhere. The Japanese models do not include this item in the menu. Plain and simple.
Visitors to Japan should be careful when purchasing items here as they more often than not only include Japanese manuals. SONY and Panasonic also only include English menus in their cameras. Canon and Nikon do have an English selection, but this should be confirmed at the point of purchase not after returning to your country!! Furthermore, warranties are usually only valid for Japan.

Not many cameras will use all formats in them no, but once your movie is on your hard-drive of the PC you can copy the film to any other media.
