Sony Handycam Video 8 CCD-TR66 NTSC Tapes won't play!

We have had this camera for over 10 years and recently we played one tape on it and it did fine. However when we went to play another, we got a flashing icon on the counter read out that looks like an arrow pointing up with a line under it followed by several beeping sounds. Tape goes in fine and comes out fine but it just won't play anymore. Please help!!!

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

I was having the same problem. I just gave it a few gentle smacks from every angle possible and it quit acting up.

1. I removed the battery. 2. With the power switch On position and holding the tape ejected I inserted the battery back on & it ejected the stuck tape.

You should remove the tape, check it is not full up, or replace it with new tape, I had this problem weeks ago, turned out the write-protect tab on tape had got pushed over to prevent recording.

No adaptor for 8mm tapes. You need to have Sony camcorder or video-8 player for playback these tapes.

Viewing SONY 8mm Tapes -- Please help


The older tapes were shot on a 8mm camcorder and the camcorder you have wil not play them becasue it doesn't have backwards compatability with the older format. The tapes you recorded are on a digital 8 camcorderr and it is different encoding than the one you recorded the other 60 tapes with. You will need to find either a dcr-trv 350 trv 530 trv 730 ect as these have the ability to play all the tapes.
Or find an older 8mm camcorder to play your tapes with.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Why wont it play LP taped tapes?


Tracking is very sensitive on hi-8 tapes in LP mode. This recorder will record and playback in LP mode. It is however recommended that if you record in LP mode that you use the same camera to play it back, that it was recorded with, or you might have problems.
Also from what I can find online, the TR427 is just an video8 camera not a Hi-8 so if you are trying to play Hi-8 tapes on it, it won't play right.

Purchased Sony Handycam DCR-TRV310 in California - where to go for UK support?


check on ebay for a back - up camera ( that model has a good history ) and / or get an estimate on yours , for a price comparison ; if the main board has failed ( corrosion , etc ) repairs will likely exceed replacement cost ;
