Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR416 Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony tr707 hi8 circa 1994

Hard to describe the symptoms but here goes.The picture is all scrabbled but if I run a tape cleaner through for about 10 seconds the picture is ok then I can play a tape through for about 5 minutes and then it reverts back to normal.If I keep the tape running the picture will eventually become a blank grey screen.I tried a wet cleaner through and I don't wont to try it again as it took me the best part of a day to remove the cassette.Whether I'm imagining it ,but the mechanism seems a bit noisy now.Any suggestions? ps when it is playing ok the picture quality is as good as new.

I have a sony ccd-tr4 videocamara when i turn it on to play the tape is rolling but all I see in the view is a vertical line


You Need a Tape cleaner. never ever leave a cassette in the system. after using a your Hi8 videocassette remove it after using. Again your question is vertical Ines. use a Hi8 head cleaner should take care of the problem. if you do use the head cleaner and find that it things hasn't change. wait a few days before using the cam.

When i try to record a yellow arrow then a message saying need head cleaner but sony doesnt make that model head cleaner what do i do


Greetings Jerry - You don't need a Sony head cleaning tape. 8mm is a standard that was used by many manufacturers.

Head cleaning cassettes for 8 mm and Hi8 are exactly the same, there is no Hi8 head cleaning cassette except one that Sony used to sell for almost three times as much as a regular 8mm and offered nothing special.

Sony also made a bit of a big deal that you can't use "wet" cleaners inside your Sony Hi8 camcorders...also not true and Sony was just trying to part you from your wallet.

I can understand if you have some concerns about these things so I suggest you Google around something like "head cleaners for 8mm and Hi8."

Good Luck,

My trv 238e camcorders heads must be cleaning, but I have not hi8 head cleaner tape, how to cleans hi8 camcorder without hi8 head cleaner tapes


A much better way to clean cassette heads is to get some cotton buds and a Can of Servisol Video 40. You should be able to get the Servisol from places like Radio Shack or if in the UK somewhere like jessops or Maplin. I have also seen it on Amazon.
Just spray it on the head (only a small amount) then wipe of the dirt with a bud.

Thanks

While playing an 8mm tape that was recorded, I have the problem where there was no sound from the camcorder and the picture was grainy.


sounds like the record head(s) may be very dirty, check them, they should clean and shiny if dulled an brown with tape residue, you can clean them with a lint free cloth and head cleaner. tape based cleaners cassette may not be good enough if the heads are very dirty. ensure you give the heads enough time to dry after cleaning 2 mins should be good then run a test record to check them.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

Loads tape then stops - won't play rewind fast


Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found.
Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.

Tapes no longer reading after head cleaner tape used


Sounds like your cleaning tape deposited too much cleaning solution on the tape head. I would purchase another tape cleaner and run it though the machine WITHOUT any liquid cleaner on it.

Try your tape then.

If you still can't get it work, then your cleaner prob damaged the head. You will need to send it in for service.

Play back problem


Your camera playback heads appear to be dirty. You can purchase a head cleaner cassette from an electronics store or take it to a service centre where they will clean the heads.

Check that the tape itself is not damaged, as this can cause the same symptoms.
