Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
My camcorder battery died, so I used a friends Sony camcorder. I used one of my blank tapes and recorded my subject. Now I am trying to watch what I taped on my Sony TRV 87 and all I see is nothing but black. Is there something I can do to get this tape to play on my camcorder?
The first thing you should do is ensure that there was information saved on the tape. Try to play the tape back on your friends camcorder, if at all possible. It is possible that they had a Hi-8 digital camcorder, and yours is analog, which would result in a blank screen when trying to play back the tape. If this is the case, you will be unable to play the tape in your camcorder.
However, if your friends camcorder is analog, it still may be recording in a slightly different format. See if you can get your friend to digitize the tape, and burn the result onto CD or DVD. In this manner, you will be able to get the video that you wish - just not in the camcorder. Best of luck, and let me know if any of these work!
