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.

SOURCE: Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear

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!

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.

Thanks,

VL-H86 PROTECT TAB IS ON AND ALL THERE IS ON THE TOP OF THE TAPE IS ERASE. HOW DO I GET IT OFF SO I CAN RECORD?


Let me reach back into the past here!
Well, protection tabs are on the cassettes. Video8 & Hi8 used a built in re-usable tab (unlike VHS, Beta etc which used a once only break-it-off tab, a method originating near 50 years ago with audio cassettes)
In reverse of the that method, when the tab is out (or slid over) recordings can be made on 8mm's including D8's and not when the tab shows.
they are located on the back edge of the cassette usually with indicator icons in the plastc of the case to help.

What type of cassette do i need for a sharp VL-A10 viewcam 8


You need to use a tape that says 8mm or Video8 only. I have provided a link to the type of tape that we would use.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MP-Video8-tape-120min/dp/B0009WUCG6/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1284056100&sr=1-7

There are tapes that say Hi8 and Dig8 on them. These tapes will not work properly in your camcorder because they are the wrong format. Your camcorder would probably chew the tape at some point if you tried to use this kind.

Hope this has helped.

Model VL-E65OU - how can I burn DVD from the 8MM cassette tape into my computer? Can I purchase a TV cable that will go from TV to computer? Would I need software in my computer to do this? OR can I go...


1. You need a firewire cable to connect camcorder to the computer.
2. Use the CD that came with the camcorder to install drivers.
3. The computer will detect it when you power ON the camcorder.
4. Use Windows Vista MovieMaker (free) to transfer and "edit" video and/or create a DVD disc

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

I have a sharp camcorder model vl-e785u and I am needing to know if there is somehow to download my tapes to a computer to burn to a cd.


I don't know about downloading to a computer, but you can buy a VCR/DVD recorder for about $140, put the VHS-C cartridge in the adapter and transfer to a DVD, or plug your Camcorder into a DVD recorder (about $119) and copy. It couldn't hurt to check out some of the transfer services that could do a little editing and copying for a modest fee.
