Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
Sometimes it works but most times it doesn't. The display, menu, date, time, and all buttons do not work. Also when this happens the zoom goes very slow.Any ideas what may be causing this problem.
I noticed on mine, I had to use small amounts of compressed air to stop it from focusing slow. Dust will do this, It has a small motor and it could be dirt slowing it down. Sounds like display problems also.

You can't remove date and time stamp on recorded movie now. Go to Menu and disable date-time stamp function for future recording.

The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

This sounds like the LCD and CCT in the Lens is dead, not a cheap repair if this is the case, pop it to a camera shop like Jessops.

There is control switch block that has zoom/wide switch along with play, rewind, forward, stop, pause buttons and this switch block flip up and down while ejecting/ load tape in camcorder, this will be replaced as zoom/wide switch got defective and sending continues command of zoom to system control chip.
Let me know if you need part number of switch block control for DCR-TRV120
