Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV18 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
All of a sudden I cannot capture footage from my dcr-trv18 to my computer via firewire. I have tried using another firewire cable, I've checked the computer port connecting it to a hard drive, and tried connecting the camera to another computer, and reset the computer for possible errors. So, the firewire port from the camera is damaged. Is there anything you suggest I can do before taking the camera for repair? Thanks cecim
Take a magnifying glass to the firewire port on the camera. Check to see if it looks damaged at all. Sometimes the port has become disengaged from the internal component. Sometimes it's simply damaged because the cable was inserted improperly. They are not very rugged. In my opinion, you followed perfect troubleshooting techniques. Time to send it in for an estimate.
