    How can this solution be inappropriate? You left the camera out to be rained on? Do you want a magic word to make it all better? I feel bad for you because there is nothing anyone can do about it, except you. Buy a new camera.

My sony handycam DCR-TRV340E is not charging at all, dont know if its to do with the battery or the AC power adaptor


First, check that the camera switch is in the off (charging) position.
If this is OK, Check the battery output connections for voltage: use a multimeter.
To check the charger, put a load resistor across the output terminals (about 1000 ti 2000 ohms) and again, using a multimeter, check there is a charging voltage. Alternatively, if the camera operates OK with the charger attached and switched on the charger is OK, AND, the problem is then in the charging circuit from camera to battery. If the battery checks OK as in the beginning, then you will need a Sony repair man who needs to know all the results from your testing above.

Will not turn on or start up..Sony Handycam DCR-DVD300 DVD


Try resetting the Camcorder to the factory settings by pressing the reset button. If the issue persists, try power resetting the camcorder. To power reset, remove the battery of the Camcorder and press and hold the power button for 30 second(or turn the Power switch to ON position for 30 seconds) and reinsert the battery after one minute and check the operation. If the issue still persists, the service is required.

My Sony Handycam DCR-PC9E mini DV Digital Camcorder is totally dead. Even powered the camcorder at Camera position and reset it according the operating manual. Yet there is no response at all . Is there...


This is a simple case of the Bat going dead, it does look from what I read that the Sony batteries do not seem to stand up long these days, I am hearing of this daily on the Mini Cameras, where my old faithful 8mm camera bat is 8 years old and as good as new.

Sony handycam was not connecting


Ha, you are so right, if you are on Windows Vista/or the new 7 then your Sony camera will no longer see a connection so you are going to buy a Firewire yes? as that is the only cable that works these days with Sony, unless you return to windows 95 or XP that is.

Sony Handycam Dig 8 doesn't recognize tape when trying to record


If it has memory stick, Make sure your memory stick is in. Your memory stick is full. Delete the unwanted pictures from the memory stick or use a differnt biger memory stick.

I looked in the manual. It seems your camcorder does not have a slot for memory stick. But you may still save pictures on the tape. Here is the link to download the manual

Please read Page 40 "recording picture on the tape".

GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is not a monster you wanna open and play with as I've seen this puppy and its loaded with flex cables connecting all the differant pcb's together. You wanna take this or send out to a camcorder specialist please. You also need a special set of these cables to work on this unit as well as a few special service jigs. Good Luck
