That means that you have set the camcorder in low light mode.

Try removing batteries to reset the settings, or operate the camera as instructed on owners manual to set Low Light mode off.

Hi,
CCD-F55 is pretty old analog camcorder and symptoms shows that it has weak capacitors on its boards.
You need to replace all electrolytic capacitors on its video, servo, system control, power boards to get back it in work.
You can buy capacitors from Here but cost of repair could be more then camcorder worth.
Good luck.

I am trying to make a dvd from a HDD video cam to a sony DVDirect recorder VRD-MC3 and a message saying non supported USB devbice keeps comiong up. Can you hellp?


The manual of the DVD doesn't say much for models, say's sony HDD, sony DVD, so maybe it's not compatible. Do you have a memory stick for the handycam ? If you stored the video on the internal storage, check the manual to see if you can move it to the memory stick, then put the stick into the DVD player. Or you will need a PC to transfer it with USB, then get a memory stick and put all the video on in and not internal storage, if the DVD is not compatible with the handycam.

I have the RDR-VX530 video cassette recorder/dvd recorder and a sony DCR-TRV520 digital handycam and i cannot get it to transfer the hi 8 video to a dvd. i use a dv in/out cord and not sure what the...


Check video input setting to DVD recorder...should be set to "External" or "Line". This should activate the video input jacks on the rear of the RDR-VX530 and allow it to "see" your Sony handycam.

Downloading video from Sony DCR-HC45 Camcorder using a 1394 Firewire. My PC is not recognising the connection. It did work at one stage without any problem but not any longer. What must I do


You have to go on Device Manager and delete the imaging device. Then uninstall old drivers and software used with the camcorder. With 32 bit OS (Win XP and Win 7 32 bit) install Nero 8 Essentails or any other video capture software. Do not plug in external device during install. After installation is complete, reboot your PC. Now you can connect your camcorder with firewire port and then open the nero software. Under video capture, it will detect your sony camcorder.

"Invalid Video Found" HDR-CX7 and VRD-MC5 DVD Recorder


The same happend to me. The camera contains informations of videofiles, which are no more present on the camera (were deleted from a computer). You are not able to record in full disk mode, or any other mode, which includes these videos. These missing files can be easily recognised, as the camcorder is not able to play them. Try to get rid of these "files", or ommit them from the recording list.

Functionality in Europe


Hey taliadoros,

According to the manufacturer, this particular model appears to allow filming in NTSC format only. Unfortunately this means that in order to play any video footage recorded on this camcorder, the device being used to play the footage back would also need to be NTSC-compliant.

Please keep in mind that while some electronics sold in Europe may be both NTSC and PAL-compliant, it cannot be guaranteed that footage filmed using your camcorder will be compatible with all multi-format model devices.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.
