The rubber parts in VCR's don't do so well just sitting unused. Kind of like how the tires on your car can develop flat spots whe it sits a long time. It probably needs a belt job.

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.

My camcorder is turning off by itself.

For Models: CC4252, CC4352, CC4362, CC4392, CC4393 If your camcorder is left in Record-Pause or Play-Pause for several minutes, it turns off automatically to prevent wear on your tape. Set the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch to OFF and then to CAMERA or VCR to turn it back on.
