Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV340 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Will not record or play back.

The problem started when in record mode.  It would stop recording, go to a blue screen and show the "set time" message.  I would press record and it would work again for a short time, then go back to the blue screen.  Soon after this, the camera stopped recording or playing back at all.  I can rewind and fastforward, but trying to tape or watch what I taped gets me nothing but the blue screen.  Thanks for your time.

    My Sony DCR-TRV740 will not record and the window goes to blue. Found that a roller came loose inside the camera. When I replace the roller it will work as long as I hold the camera steady in a certain position. Then the roller pin drops off again and the screen goes to blue. I need to know where I can get this roller pin reinstalled at a reasonable price or advice on how it is mounted in the camera.
    Thanks

The head may be dirty, try cleaning the head with a cleaner tape and try recording again.

How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message


Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1580-3om.pdf

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.
