Try depressing the "Reset" button with the camera powered on using a pencil/ball point pen - the camera's logic may have got out of sync. This often helps to remove C:xx:xx error types as well.

How to copy 8mm tape using DCR-TRV350 to pc.


You will need an analogue to digital converter box. You connect the camera to the converter box with analogue cables and connect the A/D box to the PC with a firewire cable.
Note: Many mini DV cameras with analogue inputs can act as an A/D Converter box.

I have a DCR-HC36 sony handycam and I cannot rewind the tape for playback. It keeps telling me to reinsert the cassette; I reinsert it and it keeps asking giving me the same message. What can I do?


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My camcorder won't play back tapes-or rather, it plays them, but they skip. This just started happening, and we have a new camcorder, but I have a lot of H8 tapes I can't get the video off of.


It may be a tape lubrication thing. Wet verses dry.
Some users swear by sticking to one brand.

Sometimes you can get drag or chatter when the lubes are mixed.
It may sort itself out, otherwise it's off to see the local Sony guy.

Need software for DCR-TRV330


If it is a Sony camera, and you contacted Sony e-support, and all they did waws tell you that you need the software that came with the camera, tell them you realise that, but do not have it - can they send it to you / sell it to you? That is the problem. Idiots at Sony not wanting to help.
Good luck.

This is mechanical problem of Take Up Reel section and system control chip doesn't get reel pulse and you see reinsert tape message (error message)

Repair of this mechanism is delicate work and prior experience does matter here. If you have camera repair knowledge and experience, you should check take-up reel section in camera mechanism.

Good Luck.

Convert a Hi8 to cd


Hi 8 tapes are analogue and need to be converted to digital before a DVD can be made of them. You can pass the signal through a digital video camera to the computer to convert them. Only very short videos could be copied onto a CD as most video files are much larger than a CD's capacity.
I'm not sure about digital 8 but maybe the camera only has an analogue output? If the lead goes to RCA plugs - that is analogue. A firewire socket means a digital output.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
