    Hi Superbbroad
    Thank you for such a speedy reply. Unfortunately I was unable to find a retailer stocking a headcleaner tape. However I looked at some more threads on the site which suggested taking out the battery, switching on for a while, replacing the battery and .....giving it a bit of a shake/slap. Incredibly it's now recording as normal! I'll see how it goes, and will still try to get a head cleaner. Thanks again for your help.

Hi paul

it is the cassette in sensor that is not working, I would not reccomend to fix it by yourself because video cameras are very delicate.
good luck

Can I use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes in my DCR_TRV250E?If so would I be able to playback recorded tapes on the UK televisions?.


DCR-TRV250E is a PAL version camera of the Digital8 format.
Yes you can use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes. The camera will record a PAL digital picture on the tapes which means that you can play back the tapes in PAL and therefore you will be able to playback recorded tapes on UK televisions because they are also of the PAL format.

TRV285 E, Insert cassette msg is appearing


I also had a similar problem. There was a message appearing "re-insert the cassette". I contacted Sony India. They advised to reset the Handycam (there is a button 'Reset' under the LCD when it is closed). After doing the Reset the message disappeared and it is working fine at the moment. I also checked up a forum for the message. A lot of people having the same problem were suggesting to whack the camcorder on the cassette side. Although i did not have to resort to it.

Not recording clear.


Hello, please try to playback these new recordings on some other Camcorder. If you experience good picture on the borrowed Camcorder it means that the video head is (partly) damaged. In order to cure this the video head is to be replaced. Please contact the Authorized Sony Service or the technician with the best references. Best regards, Arpi
