When i record and play back video i have no sound


If you are playing the tape in the camcorder, are you sure the volume control didn't get accidentally turned down or off? The control is the thumb wheel on the back of the camera below the viewfinder. See page 22 of your manual. If you are playing the tape in another VCR there is some other problem.

It keeps flashing c:31:22 whats wrong


This Sony code in your camera is telling you the video heads are dirty, buy or put a cleaning tape in the camera and press play for around 30 seconds, if problem is not resolved use tape cleaner for 30 more sec, that is all it is I assure you.

Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video


Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

No picture at all


CCD sensor problem ( that you can play back but have no image in capture mode is typical of this common problem ). Sony might do this repair free of charge because properly manufactured CCD sensor should last 10 years+ .

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
