Re: TIme and Date stamp do not display on playback

You need to get a Sony 1500 deck. It can retrieve your time & date stamp if you choose to record it.

Time date stamp dcr trv140. I have this model. The date does not show in the view screen or on the audio output. Just wondered if any did on this model. Maybe I have a cheaper model.

From the 'Operating Instructions' manual:
"The recording date and time are not displayed while recording. however, they are recorded automatically onto the tape. To display the
recording date and time, press DATA CODE on the Remote Commander (remote control) during recording."

LawMate PV-AC30 manual

To set the time / date stamp you'll need your remote control and you'll need to hook it to a TV with AV inputs. Be sure to correctly select the AV input the camera is plugged into. This is the most overlooked step that causes a lot of users frustration.

I've attached a YouTube video on how to accomplish the time/date setting.

Need to get rid of date stamp on playback of videos...unfortunately videos have already been there a way to turn it off on playback?

Well if you decided to date/time stamp on your films, then that is what it has done for you, just go into setting on menu and turn them off again, that is the default mode.

How is the time/date stamp displayed on a copy

The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

Panasonic SDR-H40-Date/time missing when transfering video to PC

get a capture card, an AV cord ( red, yellow and white cord) and record it onto the computer. This will push the date and time stamp onto the video. There really isnt any other quick solution :-(, unless you sport 800$ for a highend camera, then all harddrive cameras have this problem.

Getting Date & Time Stamp on to DVD

If the date and time appear during playback to a television from the camcorder, we discovered that the date and time stamp can be recorded during playback through a DVD Recorder.

DAte/Time stamp

I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.

I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.

Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage): (Special thanks to fnx91 on the videohelp forums)

Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.

Here's the best 2 options for playback:

1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60

So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.

Contact me if you have any troubles.

Lose time and date stamp on power off

According to the manual, you need to power up your 710 with the AC adapter for 4 hours to recharge the internal battery. If this doesn't work, I suppose you need to replace the internal battery, and that's beyond my knowledge.
