Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

Recording stopped working

Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

Blue LCD Screen when I try to play a movie in VCR Mode

the tape path need to be cleaned, the heads are clogged. Also what can happen with sonys in low take-up torque. the take up reel can be retensioned, but it's a little tricky. you can send it me me if you like, A job like that might run about $100, thats if the heads are still good. Include a check for $40 to cover diagnostic, cleaning chemicals and bench time. If it just needs cleaning thats all you pay. This fee will apply to the repair if you approve the estimate. Send to Neighborhood camcorder Service. 8917 Woodman way , Sacramento ca. 95826, phone # is 916-362-8708. Larry
