The only thing I can find on this (and its silly sounding I know) is the following: 1) Moisture condesnation build up, leave the door open for 1 hour or more 2) The tapes you are using have write protection enabled

What do i need to purchase to connect my sony handycam cdd-trv68


You need to download your movies with a Firewire cable, you must make sure your PC or Laptop has this socket, the marking near this socket on your computer has a 3 bladed windmill picture.
Your cable will set you back about £10 at most good camera shops.

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"

REINSERT CASSETTE MESSAGE ON Sony Handycam TRV138- Hi8


I bet it has been in a cupboard and not used for a long time. The camcorder has a "Mechacon Fault". Maybe electronic, (component failure) or electrical, (switches tarnished contacts).
