Question about Sharp Video Cameras
Do i need the battery AND an adapter ? and then to transfer to dvd or pc WHAT part would I need?
Not sure if that camera works just with a power adapter, some of them need the battery. If you look on Ebay you may find both. If you get them and the camera works ok then you will need a video capture card or USB video capture adapter to connect the camera to the PC. Then you will need to know what type of output lead you need from the camera to the video card/adapter. Usually with older cameras it will have a socket for a lead to allow for showing on TV. It should have the red/yellow/white RCA/Phono connectors on one end and the plug for the camera on the other. Then you will need video capture software. It may come supplied with the capture device.

I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.
I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

I believe all Sony model DCR-TRV2XX and 3XX would play Hi 8 and ST8
Such as DCR-TRV265, DCR-TRV285 DCR-TRV340, DCR-TRV355
I hope that give you some ideas

There is no adapter available because the tape size is different than VHS. If yuo can post a picture of the part that is broken, I may be able to locate one. I have a number of scrap units that I can part out. Please also indicate where you aer located in the country.
