Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Playback intermittently plays in slow motion and in fast

When we record on the disk all seems fine and quite often we are only in record or stby mode - no special effects being used when recording (at least I don't think so).

However, once we format the disk to playback we find that about every 45 seconds or so it will run in slow motion for about 2 seconds and then about 5 seconds later it will run faster than normal for about 2 seconds. All other aspects are fine. Is ther a setting that I need to adjust or do I simply have a problem with the camera.

Can't seem to figure it out.

    same camcorder,same problem . after finalizing disc and playing back on dvd player, playback video motion slows and then resumes every 5 mins or so. I am making sure camcorder remains still during finalizing.I have used fujifilm and phillips dvd-r. I am now using sony brand dvd-rw,but have not finalized and viewed yet.

    When playing back on the TV, it is intermittently slow or stops. However, in reading the manual, it says that "the image may freeze for an instant between scenes depending on the DVD device being used. This is not a malfunction." Go figure.

Have you tried using a different DVD-RW? If you have used the same one over and over, it may have been corrupted by frequent use.

Has the camcorder done this since you bought it or is this a recent problem. If it is more recent it could be a problem with the read/write heads on the camera itself.

If this doesn't work, comment on the solution post and we can continue to trouble shoot.

Hope this helps!!!

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:


This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

VX2100 record settings for slow motion playback when editing


you can't ! you have to slow you footage afterwards.
Anyway, try to record with a slow speed shutter (1/30th of a second or less) to fluidify your images but if you want to slow down your footage, it's probably because the scene is "fast" and this doesn't could help you anyway !!!

LP/SP mode


Seems your Canon doesn't support LP mode playback. Please see its user manual and check its specifications for LP mode playback.

Blocks of noise


Don't know about the slow motion, but the noise is usually from dirty heads. Just like a cassette player it needs them cleaned periodically. Dip a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol and rub over the entire path the tape takes. You'll see a little block that actually reads the tape. Thats what you need to clean.

Make sure you eject the tape and remove the battery while the tape drive is open to clean it. Rubbing alcohol dries fast but give it an extra ten minutes and check it again.

Video recorder while the heads were dirty will not change however new video should be clean.

You may also have a bent tape carrier that is putting your video off track. It needs to be pushed or pulled to realign it.

It it's not the cause though, this can make playing back the earlier tapes more difficult since they will read and record in a slightly different part of the tape.


Good luck!
