No adaptor for 8mm tapes. You need to have Sony camcorder or video-8 player for playback these tapes.

Is there a VHS adapter to view tapes on TV?


The 8mm recording system is totally different to the VHS system and therefore cannot be played in a VHS player. No adaptor is available such as the VHS-C to VHS adaptor.
Sony did release a dedicated 8mm Player/Recorder many years ago although these tend to be difficult to find offered for sale. RHN

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"

We can see the image in fast forward or rewind but and no audio


Many parts are still available on these camcorders however if it needs a video head for example, and it's not avaiable it may be a better idea to get another 8mm camcorder off ebay, or maybe a pawn shop. just test them with a new blank tape first before putting your family tapes in.

Will this unit play 8 mm cassette tapes that are formatted "mp"?


You want to purchase the Handycam CCD-TRV37? If so that is 8mm. If your referring to another camera give me the model and I will let you know. Though I would consider switching over to mini-dv. The quality is alot better and is the standard now so there are many models available.
Thank you,
Lee

Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video


Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

Viewing SONY 8mm Tapes -- Please help


The older tapes were shot on a 8mm camcorder and the camcorder you have wil not play them becasue it doesn't have backwards compatability with the older format. The tapes you recorded are on a digital 8 camcorderr and it is different encoding than the one you recorded the other 60 tapes with. You will need to find either a dcr-trv 350 trv 530 trv 730 ect as these have the ability to play all the tapes.
Or find an older 8mm camcorder to play your tapes with.
Hope this helps
Cheers
