CCD-TRV68-Sony HI8 HandyCam

I have this model which have almost no hour usage on it but it's about 5 years old! It will play back just fine but when you switch to the camera mode the display screen stays black just like the lens cover is on and says standby in the display? The batteries are both in good condition even after 5 years! I'm sure it's probably toast but wanted an expert opinion! Thansk,Mike Wagner

Hi...I have a Sony Hi8 Handycam recorder. It's about 10 years old so it's performed well. We are having trouble with recording. It will only record correctly in outdoor bright light. When I record...

It sounds to me like the aperture is stuck. The aperture is what adjusts to let in more or less light. If it is stuck closed down, it will look fine outside but won't let in enough light inside. Sadly, there is probably nothing you can do about it. You could take it to a camera repair shop, but being 10 years old, you might opt for a new camera instead. I feel your pain!

What do i need to purchase to connect my sony handycam cdd-trv68

You need to download your movies with a Firewire cable, you must make sure your PC or Laptop has this socket, the marking near this socket on your computer has a 3 bladed windmill picture.
Your cable will set you back about £10 at most good camera shops.

Will not play on new RCA LCD TV tried different

Try hooking up your sony handycam to a different monitor or tv to make sure it is putting out a good video signal using an S-Video cable. Then once you know your cords are good and you have a good video signal, hook it back up to the RCA LCD unit. If it is still not working make sure that the RCA LCD is set to receive the Hi8 signal via the S-Video cable. There may be a switch or menu setting on your RCA LCD to accept the Hi8 signal or also refered to as S- Video.

I hoped that helped and good luck!

Making a CD from Sony CCDTRV68 Handycam

I'm using TRV320 camcorder with IEEE 1394 firewire cable 4pin to 6 pin. Your PC also need 1394 firewire plug which should be available in ebay. AV output is for analog signal and you need to use DV in/out plug for digital signal in your camcorder. Good luck -James
