Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV308 Camcorder

1 Answer

TRV30 - black lines appearing on playback

I have a 4-5 year old camera. When I record - all looks normal (and all has been normal until now)...but when I play it back - there appear 5 black lines (like prison stripes) that completely obliterate the picture.

When was the last time you "cleaned" the heads? Use a good commercial head cleaning tape. They have both "Wet" and "Dry" types. I prefer the "wet" over the dry. I think it does a better job but they are hard to find sometimes. you can also do it manually with "foam" swabs and "methanol". Alcohol works but the methanol leaves less residue behind. If that doesn't solve the problem the next step would be to take it to a repair shop for cleaning and re-alignment.

Can you clarify what do you mean with bands. Have you tried reseting the camera to default settings that can be done either in the menu or there should be a reset button.

No video on the camera viewfinder or miniscreen


At seventeen years old, it is well beyond the expected lifespan of any domestic camcorder. Replace it.

Dark screen on my video-camera Canon MV700i


I have the same problem, it appears that this camera is one of many cameras that have problems with the CCD (image sensor) have a look at this site for more info www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

I hadn't used mine for about 9 months, when I went to use it the screen was black with a bit of flicker. Canon are still fixing them if you're from the UK have a peep here - https://self-service.canon-europe.com/uk/pages/

Hope that helps

Not recording clear.


Hello, please try to playback these new recordings on some other Camcorder. If you experience good picture on the borrowed Camcorder it means that the video head is (partly) damaged. In order to cure this the video head is to be replaced. Please contact the Authorized Sony Service or the technician with the best references. Best regards, Arpi
