Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
When switched to OFF/Charge, camera stays on.
I have CCD-TRV57E and found camera would switch itself ON and could not turn off. Had switch replaced some years ago and is now fine. Also have a friend with same camera and had the same problem, also had switch replaced.

Moisture sensor is on the main circuit board and to replace the sensor you probably invest $100-200 for repair. It's the sensor or component surounding the sensor which gone bad. No other way around it. Good luck.

SOURCE: how to add the Sony
This camcorder as far as I remember has not got a fire wire out connection however on the left side as you look at the lens there are various video and audio output connectors such as YC commonly known as SVHS.
To hook the camcorder up to a computer you need a box known as a break out box.
Basic it's a box that take the analogue video and audio signals into it and converts them to a digital signal.
The out put connector from the box is fire wire which will connect to a computer with a fire wire port.
Most modern laptops have a fire wire input in fact it's been around for a good 10 years.
There are many break out boxes on the market ranging from £70 to several hundred £ss.
I have a. ADVC300 the write up from the net is as followes.
ADVC300 is the ultimate bi-directional analogue to digital video converter unit for the video enthusiast. Featuring high-quality image enhancement technology including digital noise reduction and image stabilization using Line Time Base Correction(LTBC), ADVC300 instantly cleans, stabilizes and preserves old VHS and Hi8 videos in clean DV format. Supporting Windows and Mac OS, ADVC300 is compatible with all widely used video editing applications including Canopus EDIUS, Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress DV and Adobe Premiere Pro.
This costs £382 from but you can get cheaper.

My guess is that with the age of the battery it isn't able to hold a charge anymore which means you'll need to purchase a new battery. Your best bet for that will be to go through Sony or the website Dr. Battery.
