Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV38 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Picture Image Becomes Blury When Recording

The picture image on My Sony DCR-TRV38 has begun to look like it is melting after several minutes recording. This problem seems to come and go, but is becoming more frequent. This distorted image is on the LCD screen and also ends up on the recorded tape. It looks like a pixelation issue of some kind. The pixels blur and seem to melt together then pop back into focus then melt together again. I have cleaned the heads but it didn't make a difference. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

No picture seen or recorded - only audio


I had a similar problem with my Sony 14E in that it would not record at all - sound or pictures. Prior to that I had the lines indicating head cleaning necessary. I did this, and still nothing. I then did the following which you might try.
1. Clean the heads (I did it about 3 times in the space of a couple of hours).
2. Leave the camera tape section open (with or without the tape in) for a couple of hours and the camera in a WARM PLACE. I had condensation message prior to my problems too.
3. Put in a recorded tape and attempt to view it. Immediately I had the "dirty" lines for a few seconds then it played the recording.
AT THAT STAGE I TRIED TO RECORD - NOTHING.
Repeat Steps 1 - 3 because this seems to be about dirt and cold.
4. When step 3 is reached again! try to record. Eventually this worked for me.
I hope this helps and works for you.

Unable to play Audio after Video Capture


I happen to have this setup... you need to set the audio source (the usb camera connection.) It is possible to hook up via the sound card, but that could be stressful for some.

Sony DCR-TRV38 - cannot burn movie to DVD


I found the best way of editing the footage from these cameras is to put the DVD disc into your computer and copy the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder onto another folder on your hard drive. The uses a video editing application which is specifically designed for the MPEG format. I would highly recommend the low cost "Womble MPEG Video Wizard" which is available for a 30 day trial at www.womble.com.
