Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
I have a Sony DCR-TRV460 Digital8 camcorder that appears to record and play back digital tapes fine. BUT, in attempting to play back my old Hi8 tapes to record to DVD...the bottom 1/8th of the screen is choppy and there is NO SOUND. I checked multiple Hi8 tapes and they all play back the same way. I noticed on one tape when the "tracking" appeared to be better, then there was intermittent sound. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance....allen
Hi all, I found out that I had purchased an extended warranty with the camcorder (will expire in Feb 2008). So Best Buy fixed this under warranty. The repair sheet came back saying they had to replace an analog chip / analog PCB. I've transferred nearly 25 tapes to DVD since then, and they all play back with sound. Thanks again for the tips! --Allen (neuz2me)

I don't think theris anything wrong with your recorder, It happens because the tracking info of your old tapes is not the same as your new one. You can view anythingyou record even in old tapes, but u can't playback another recording. so if u want to tape the old recording then u have re-adjust the tape guides while playing an old tape until u can get a clear picture. The adjustments are minor. DO NOT TURN THE GUIDES TOO MUCH. Remember to mark the initial setting cheers

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 ) ;
