Sony 8mm digital cam corder bluescreen on standby and recording
Good morning all,
I wonder if you could help with this bizzare issue.
Withing approximately two years of the camera life, the unit begun malfunctioning. Tape Playback is sound, however, when the camera is in record mode, there is no image comung throug the ccd but a blue screen. Is this a driver issue or has the CCD sensor chip broken down?

The functions you mentioned are driven by tiny rubber belts, one or more of these belts is defective, most likely stretched from age, replace them if you can find them, try eBay, they are a good source.
when problem occur while cam is operating, the self-diagnosis function starts working, and may display the service mode display code. in your case, C:31:40, pertains to a part of the cam tape compartment mechanism called the drum that doesn't start up. issues could prevent you from recording, playing back tapes, rewinding or fas forwarding. t/s steps are: try diff tapes esp. w/prev recordings, reset cam (press reset button while cam is on, located just below the menu button, in the panel where the lcd screen goes to), power reset (remove batt and ac adapter and leave cam w/ any power source for at least a minute). if issue persists, unit will require repair. hope this helps.tnx:)
Two things here. Is your cam corder a digital one? If so there should be a connector on it for either firewire or USB, and if not, you will need some kind of video capture device if your cam corder has outputs on it. If not, you will need a player (vhs-c or 8mm or whatever your format) that can send out to the computer. Once this connectivity is done, you need video capture software that will "encode" the video files that will be produced. If your cam corder is already data (hard drive onboard or SCD card recording, you will only have to "demux" the format you have into the format that you are seeking (ie.. MPG to AVI or so on).
I hope that helps you out.. let me know if you need more clarification. It also might help if you give the media you have (VHS-c etc.) and the available outputs that you see on your cam corder. Thanks!
My cam corder is model number DCR-PC9 not DCR-TRV525
dileep007 tried to help me was not successful
I have always used DVM60 casset Willappreciate help to solve the problem. Sincerely
What it is, is the standard 8mm tapes are not digital, and therefore won't import into imovie, unless you have the 8mm to Hi8 option enabled in playback mode, by setting it in the menu, under playback settings.
