Can't record through A/V cable

I am unable to record vcr or tv through the A/V cable supplied with the Sony DCR-TRV250. It works fine sending the signal to a TV or VCR but will not take a signal in. I have tried following the directions in the manual with no success. Everything else seems to work fine

I need help with my Sony DCR-TRV250. I am trying to play a tape on my VCR and record onto my Sony Camcorder.

I believe that this particular model does not have an A/V input. The A/V jack on the camcorder is output only. This link will provide all of the specs on this camcorder.

Hope this has helped you in some way.

I get a blue screen and won't let me record

The dcr-trv250 has to common problems that apply to your camcorder. Bad iris or bad ccd imager. I've seen about a 100 of each lately. Look into the lens while you turn the power off then back on into camera mode. You will be able to see the iris open. If you don't see it open then it's most likely bad.

Your DCR-TRV250 uses a Digital 8 system to record and playback information on its cassette whereas the older Analog 8mm machines used the analog system. Unfortunately the two are incompatible.

The no tape and eject symbols are flashing at the same time.

Those signs means Record tab on tape is ON, eject tape and check record tab and make sure to set it on Record position.
