Question about Sony Video Cameras

Open Question

Can you adjust the tracking on Sony CCD-TR101 Hi8 Handycam?

I am transferring old Hi8 tapes to digital... I am using my Sony CCD-TR101 Handycam to play the tapes... I was able to transfer two 1 hour Hi8 tapes..then the camera was not playing the tape properly..it appears that the tracking is off... I get intermittent audio and the video is jumpy with lines..and at times just lines. I ejected the tape and reinserted/started it (multiple times) with random success...but only temporarily? Any sugestions?

SOURCE: Hi8 playback problem

your guides have come loose , probably - the digital sound will be next to go because the bottom edge of your tapes are being folded - open the cassette tape lid by pressing the small pin near one hinge and gently lifting the door - if there are any creases ? get the guides aligned ! to protect your library ; ( if there are no creases , try a sony d8 cleaning tape - once ! before getting a repair quote ) ;

SOURCE: hi8 to dvd

Greetings ocean view,

My suggestion would be to find a retailer who transfers video tape to dvd. They use an actual machine to do this and it should recognize your tape. This might solve your problem.

I hope this helps!
Sincerely,

Dorothy

HELP, I have borrowed an older camcorder from a friend. A sony Hi8 CCD-TR101 handycam. My child put the tape in backwards and now it wont eject. What should I do??


Tape can not be inserted backward in.It is impossible to to insert cassette inside video wrong way.
If it is not ejecting its eject switch might have got broken by physically pulling its cassette compartment outward before closing last time.
Its mini switch is very fragile in all sony models. so only way is to take to technician to bring it out.If i were you,I would buy used one from ebay at lower price than repairing.

Sony handycam video cassette


To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

How can I view hi8 video tapes on my VCR My HI 8


VHS units are not capable of reading Hi8 video. You could have a shop transfer your recordings for a nominal service charge but if you have many tapes you may want to have your own unit repaired. You could purchase another unit second hand but be wary of doing so as the tracking could be slightly different to your own one and you would need a service centre to adjust it anyway. Best of luck!

Hi8 Tape Will Eject but will not forward/record/rewind,


a problem with an electro mechanical mode-select switch there could be a timing problem arised by mechanical problems on contacts inside (an old video recorder problem between the seventies and nineties ) all equipments where tapes or cassettes are used.
A service manual for timing should be neccesary

How to copy a Hi 8 tape to a DVD on a computer


Hello,
Sony handycam model starts with CCD-XXXX shows that its analog camcorder and its picture signal is analog. You can't connect directly camera with PC to transfer files. You need to install MPEG card or some thing like that in PC 1st and this card will digitize analog picture signal into compatible format.

Sony Hi8


If you see the line while in the camera mode (actually recording a scene), then the line will be on the recording most likely. Check your tape for damage by lifting open the front of the cassette (tab on left side of tape), pull tab back while opening cover and inspect for creases or damage. Either of these cases will be non-repairable (bad recording). If the tape path is out of line the then it may be possible to have a tech realign the tape path to correct problem.
