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)

Can I use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes in my DCR_TRV250E?If so would I be able to playback recorded tapes on the UK televisions?.

DCR-TRV250E is a PAL version camera of the Digital8 format.
Yes you can use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes. The camera will record a PAL digital picture on the tapes which means that you can play back the tapes in PAL and therefore you will be able to playback recorded tapes on UK televisions because they are also of the PAL format.

Hi8 sony time code camera

Unfortunately solution #1 is incorrect. Many Sony Hi8 camcorders had the ability to store timecode information on the tapes. My TR3400 is one of them. It is not stored in the same way as the newer digital cameras, but it is there nonetheless. It is not permanently imprinted in the picture either, it can be turned on or off at will during playback if you chose to date stamp your footage when you took it (it was optional). See this list for a partial list of cameras that did support it:

I have had my hopes that the Digital8 cameras could provide the required translation to DV timecode, but I keep hearing conflicting reports, typically the answer is no. There is a third party product that was created to help solve this problem though: It is not particularly cheap but if you really need the timecode it looks like the only real alternative at this point. I have not used it myself yet, but may have to as well.

How can I transfer video onto a PC

Your camera is Analog model, can't connected directly with PC. You need to install some sort of "Analog-to-Digital video convertor card" in PC to digitize its audio-video output.

Camcorder won't playback most Hi8 tapes

may be your camera not design to play the analog tape...there are some model that can playback a analog tape...i think your camera is for digital playback only.... check your user manual

Not reading Hi8 tapes

Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel
