Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV30E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Most of the time my DCR-TRV30E works just fine, however from time to time horizontal bars appear on playback. These are made up of 6 static bars from the last frame taken (like the wipe function) and six bars of the new clip which are moving with sound. The picture then pixelates like a special effect and returns to normal. I have also recently had a section of tape with absolutely nothing on it, no sound, no picture, just a blue screen. This camera has been well looked after and has recorded less than 20 hrs of video since new. I always use Sony tapes. The local Sony dealer has tried a head cleaner but now suggests sending it to the repair shop which charges a minimum of GBP 180 regardless of the cost of the repair. Has anyone a better suggestion as at that rate the camera may as well be put in the bin.
Thanks in advance.
Not a solution sorry, but just to note that I have the same problem on TRV30e. It's intermittant an relatively rare, so haven't bothered getting it fixed. Seems related to certain types of DV tapes - if I change tape the problem often goes away.
