Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 Camcorder

1 Answer

I have an old Sony handy cam that has been damaged for some years. I do not want to resurrect the camera but to replace it with a second hand camera so that I can load my library of tapes to my pc. My problem is that there does not seem to be many of this type available in working order. I need to know if any of the other handycam TR's or TRV's are compatable with the tapes recorded on my TR705E. Any advice would be most welcome. Thanks, Don Whittaker

SOURCE: Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20

There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks

All of a sudden no picture appears on the screen when recording or playing back. It will play old tapes that have been recorded, but won't record any new pictures, just sound. Did I press something? It worked a month ago and hasn't been used since.

SOURCE: Sony handy cam stuck on night mode

I don't have this camera, so I can't tell you how to change the setting, but on most electronics, if you take out the battery, and leave it out for an hour (with no power cable attached), they go back to their original settings, so this would likely get you out of the night mode.

You can also see if there is any info on the Sony site .
You could also ask on one of the may forums on the net...
Good luck!

SOURCE: Transfering 8mm video tapes to dvds

Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.

If it has memory stick, Make sure your memory stick is in. Your memory stick is full. Delete the unwanted pictures from the memory stick or use a differnt biger memory stick.

I looked in the manual. It seems your camcorder does not have a slot for memory stick. But you may still save pictures on the tape. Here is the link to download the manual

Please read Page 40 "recording picture on the tape".

GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The handy cam turns on but the side viewer shows a grey and white screen, it tries to show the figure but it doesn't



The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

If you're sure that the tapes are good (for example - plays normal in other cameras / players) then it should be a problem with the camera video head. You should give it to your local Sony service center, but I expect it will get expensive.

Hope this helps somehow.

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
