SOURCE: sony dcr-trv6 unable to load tape in deck

This is a common problem. The code indicates that the sensor for the supply reel has indicated lack of motion. If you have a cleaning tape, try it first because if the head drum hesitates, reel error codes often appear. If this doesn't help you are in for a service situation. There are other electronic failures that can cause false codes and operations in many cases. These usually involve cable connection failure. You still need a qualified servicer. Good luck, magic seadog

This model has iLink: IEEE 1394 firewire port. If you don't have a firewire card, you can probably find one pretty cheap on the internet (try ebay).
Windows has movie maker, which when the camera is connected, will allow you to capture the video from the camera on the comptuer, although there is no DVD burner software at least on the XP version (not sure about Vista). I use Nero for the whole process: capture, edit, burn to DVD.

Buy a Sony-make head cleaning cassette and play it in the camera for 10 seconds. Do not play for more time, neither forward or reverse the cleaning cassette, otherwise you will damage the head of the camera. This cleaning cassette is to be thrown when it is fully played (and not rewound!).

Sony handycam digita8 iwant to use memory chip replase memory tep?


Here is Sony's page for the product: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=DCRTRV280&template_id=1&region_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab
I don't see where it has support for any memory card format. If you can find any slots built into the machine, upload a picture and we could probably tell you what they are, but from what I've read, you're either using the digital 8 tape, or you're streaming over USB to a computer.

I constantly get this message-"re-insert


No. The timing cam is misaligned. The carriage is suppose to accept the tape, and when you close the door, it pulls the tape from the carriage towards the head and drive the take-up reel to the supply reel as the head reads or plays back the tape. If the timing cam is misaligned, it will not accept the tape and thus you get the error message.

I have dcr trv 720 camcord and when i want to pay there is no picture haraj @shaw.ca


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Video capture does not work with SONY TRV720 and XP 64 bit.


It will mostly not work with USB, but your camera and most new PC now have fire-wire that I can tell you works great.
Good luck, by the way Fire Wire cables are from Maplins, PC world, Jessops around £15

Playing the tape is getting stuck


The unit needs cleaning, especially the feed roller. You can do it yourself- there are articles that explain how on the net, but you have to be extremely careful not to damage the tape heads, so if you've never done it, have someone how knows how. A vcr needs cleaning about every 6 months, and depending on camera usage, maybe yearly. Hope this helps.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-TRV720 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder. How can I transfer the video from these tapes to DVD? The cabling seems too old school to link up to my computer in order to burn a DVD.

LCD Problem


I have seen backlight problems on the external LCD display. Take a flashlight and shine it on the external display to see if you have a picture. If you can see a faint picture, most likely either the backlight or backlight inverter has failed. Those LCD modules can be tricky to service because of the size. I would recommend a qualified tech for the job
