Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV8 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Blurred Video I have a Sony DCR-TRV8 Handy-cam that has a blurred video problem. The picture resembles a runny water color. It can be seen on both the LCD screen as well as through the eye piece, and is also captured on the tape. I can apply a slight side ways pressure to the lens ring and it will clear up until I release the pressure on the lens and the blur is back. Some times after I release the pressure the picture will stay clear for a few seconds and it blurs again. I know it has to do with the lens, I just don't know if it's the lens assembly or just a loose connection. Can you help, Thanks.

Sony DCR-TRV8 video transfer problems

The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
However if you have firewire input on your Laptop, have you? normaly if you have firewire input on your laptop as soon as you connect your CAM it will detect automatic either with windown movies maker or with Nero
Sometime the firewire from CAM defect I repaired a few of them with this problem

Downloading video's to computer with the dcr-trv8 handycam

You should be able to hook up through usb or firewire. If your computer has a firewire port on it you can but a firewire cable that works with your camera and then use windows movie maker to capture the video footage. You can then burn it to a dvd.
