Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 Camcorder
Hi, There are 2 problems at present. When recording an image, the zooming mechanism (the button that indicates: "T - W")zooms into the image very slowly. How do you stop it from zooming in when recording? The playback icon symbol shows in the viewing screen and playback starts happening when pressing the rewind button. The stop, pause, fast forward buttons are non fuctional when this occurs. The only way to stop the playback is pushing the eject button or turning off the power button. Rewinding a tape is not fuctional at all. The zoom button still operates when recording but is stuck slowly zooming in all the time. Pressing in the Play button will not start playback but pressing in the Rewind button will start playback. Power off or eject to stop playback. Pressing the Pause button will start playback. Power off or eject to stop playback. The Zoom, Rewind and Pause buttons are all that are functional in Player mode operating as described. Recording "seems" to be happening with the Zomm function slowly happening all the time. We can't be sure recording is happening though as we can't rewind the tape to playback and see.
I noticed on mine, I had to use small amounts of compressed air to stop it from focusing slow. Dust will do this, It has a small motor and it could be dirt slowing it down. Sounds like display problems also.

This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog
