Question about Sony DCR-TRV285E Digital-8 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Power does not flow in

My Digital Camcorder SONY TRV330E has encountered with a problem of NOT ALLOWING the electric power to flow in when the power connecter is connected to camcorder's socket.
In actual, it the camcorder immediately will start functioning when power connector is connected to camcorder.
But what i have noticed is that the when connected the power flows for few seconds (say 15 seconds) and then gets disconneted or power is not drawn in.
Please help me what to do in this regard.
Thanks. Meganathan.

    I just now cleaned and tried, but still it is not drawing power.
    What i noticed earlier the whole day was that, if i reconnect say after 4 or 5 hours then it is drawing power for few seconds and then again it stops and does'nt start again for long and goes off.


    This is the problem.


    Regards,
    Meganathan.

There are metal connectors in the camera that get touched to the connector that which you connect the camera.if that connectors are bent or dusty or got internally loose.this happens.it should be checked as if its bent or dirty you can manually do.but if loose internally taking it to the repair center is necessary.

A malfunction other than the above that you can service has occurred.
  • Eject the cassette and insert it again, then operate your camcorder.
  • Disconnect the power cord of the AC Adapter or remove the battery pack. After reconnecting the power source, operate your camcorder

Tape door won't shut and message C:31:40


You need a qualifier Tech trained from Sony to repair your CAM
Your problem is that the cassette compartment it had 2 sensor and a few contact to detect what kind of tape you are insert like normal, metal or Digital 8 or Hi 8 or 8 Standar or cleaning tape so the system control would auto adjust according the tape
Those contact conducted by flexible cable now that FC may be cut or the sensor faulty when you insert the tape the CAM detected 1 side of the tape so it juded like some thing wrong with the tape then it will not load the tape in because it designed to protect the tape and protect mechanism
Without the tape no problem because the sensor or contact at the right corner of CAM did not detect any thing
If You want to know how it detect what kind of the tape, just turn the D8 tape up side down, you can see the holes on the left and right corner where is the tab for save and record
You need to replace 1 chassis LS assembly it cost about $250 to $350 if you are in AUSTRALIA
I hope that give you some ideas

condensation is the situation where a sensor detects presence of moisture inside that is hazardous to the gadget, this will not be removed if no air flow can get inside, best way is to open any side and blow hot air inside. Not hot that can damage some parts.

PD150 battery problems


Sony has had a few large scale recalls of Lithium Ion batteries in the past 3-4 years or so. I have a feeling that NPF960s may have been involved. Best idea would be to contact an authorised Sony service centre and quiz them about it. You may score a free replacement battery out of it, even if yours is out of warranty.
