Regarding rewind problem

Dear Sirs, This is to kindly let you know that I am a professional camera technician. Presently I am having Sony CCD-TRV12 Hi8 camcorder under repairing. The problem is that when I insert the camera the play system works well. The FF system also works well. But as soon I push the rewind button, the mechanism stops after few seconds and the entire camcorder hangs up. None of the any function works until I eject the cassette. The eject icon appears on the screen. Other wise all other functions works well. Please help me in this matter. Thanks Heero

Re: Regarding rewind problem

The mechanism is to be replaced.
Before this check the TG assemblies for any deformation.
Then check the reel table also for any defects.
We provide spare parts for all kinds of SONY and Pansonic Models.

When i record and play back video i have no sound

If you are playing the tape in the camcorder, are you sure the volume control didn't get accidentally turned down or off? The control is the thumb wheel on the back of the camera below the viewfinder. See page 22 of your manual. If you are playing the tape in another VCR there is some other problem.

The flip out viewfinder display does not work. Does the coin sized lithium batteryhave anything to do with the display?

The coin size lithium battery is usually used to retain the settings .... e.g. date, time, preferences, etc.
So, it is not likely the cause of your flip LCD display not working

I need some hardware. I need the wire from the camcorder to a T.V. or V.C.R. Where can I obtain one?

Well, 1. sony will usually have any cables needed. 2. any best buy, type store etc will have replacements. you should take the camera in to the store with you, also shop around on the price, or take it to a local store find out the type of cable and then shop it out online. also make sure when brining YOUR camera into a store let them know at the door your taking your own camera in and need to find out a cable type. (This way there is no confusion when your walking a store with a cam corder in hand.)

Won`t Rewind

Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!
