Problem with sony ccd tvr208

In the year 2000 i took some videos of my new born baby at the time i didnt own a camcorder so a friend of mine lent me a sony hi8 type to shoot
some videos in total i managed to record around 8 of them and since then
they have been in their own case becouse my friend sold his camcorder
so becouse of this i decided to buy the above model" ccd tvr208e" in order to play them again now the problem im having when i insert the cassette in the camcorder i dont get any images ie on the display itself
or tv im only getting a crackling noise like if it was the tracking but no lines to be seen anywhere only a blue screen my only fear is that over the years the cassette the migth have lost the quality bear in mind this tapes they only been played once at most and i know no one has handled them becouse i keep them in safe place unfotunatley there was no manual with camcorder so i hope with your expirence you could help me many thanks and hoping to hear from you soon regards

CCD-TRV208E is analog Sony Handycam and I think tape was recorder on Digital Handycam.
Digital handyacam model starts with letters DCR-xxx so locate a digital handycam to get tape recordings.
I got this idea when you said, only getting crackling noise and blue screen.

Can't Video on my DCR-HC20

Yes, there was a major recall exercise conducted by Sony to replace faulty CCD imagers in a wide range of Sony products. I've had the CCD in my HC20 replaced a year ago, free of charge. I strongly recommend that the camcorder be taken to an authorised service center to have this issue resolved. Thanks!

Sony Handycam DCR-HC30

The DCR-HC30 camcorder had a recall that Sony still honored up to at least 2009 summer and may still. They had problems with the CCD device and the glue used to put it together melting. I sent the unit to Sony after calling their repair center and getting a RMA number. The sent my unit back (it's about 4-5 years old) repaired for free. I appreciate Sony for their help in the issue as it was a recurring defect.
This camcorder is one of the few that can be used to take old Hi8, VCR's, Turntables and any other medium that can be interfaced with the Sony Cord that can be used to input video and audio and send it directly to a Mac or PC via Firewire. Works like one of those interfaces you buy at the Apple Store. Just hook up your old source (RCA, S-VHS) to the side jacks on the Camcorder, then hook up the firewirecable to the computer and it works straight away. Nice if you have old tapes you want to remaster through Final Cut or iMovie. Make MP4's with Quick Time and music can be inputted to iTunes. Nice Solution as a part of a camcorder.
