Menu select dial problem

My sony DCR-TRV730 camcorder has an unusal problem: Menu sel/exec dial will only select 'Preset Titles'. The only wat to get into the menu is via the menu button when thst LCD panel is open,and the only way to execute an option is via the 'push exec' button. Is there a simple way to solve this or am I forced to live with this problem.

Re: menu select dial problem

It will not let me out of the title area. The menu will only show me the option under the different headings but will not go to the format section nor other sun sections. Have tried a new memory stick and get the fast blinking error with the new one too.

My Sony HC14E says to do this :
Set Power to CAMERA
Open the LCD panel
Press the FN (Function) to display PAGE
Press MENU to display the menus available
Press upward and downward arrows to select the symbol which on mine looks like a suitcase! then press EXEC
Select upward and downward arrows to select CLOCKSET then EXEC
Select the upward and downward arrows to enter the year
Set the month, day and hour with the same procedure as above
Press the arrow keys to set the minute, then press EXEC by the time signal. The clock starts to move.
Hope this helps.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
