Sony dcr-trv120 playback

Hi all
i have a sony dcr-trv120, recently it developed a problem with the playback, on screen the picture started to go pixelly in 3 lines across the screen now it has 3 grey lines (no picture) but the rest of the screen shows the picture perfectly, i have tried head cleaning tapes but as the picture is so good on the areas that work i can only assume something has failed with the pickup of the picture from the tape, if i playback to a tv the same occurs

thanks for any help
tim

The problem is with the video head. either it's dirty or broken. if cleaning tape is not solving the problem then i fear you have to get the head changed. an expensive repair.

I have the same problem on my sony dcr-trv320E. I have cleaned the heads, and still get the horizontal stripes on all tapes. Will bring it to a store to fix.

Sony DCR-TRV510 Playback Blank or Choppy


I recently had similar problem. Sony Phone tech support was very helpful. The answers were strange. You need to make sure the cameral is turned off, unpluged and take the battery out for at least 5 minutes. (something to do with reseting firmware). That sort of worked when coupled with there last comment which was to RECORD about 15 seconds and play it back. Mine was instantly healed!

Cannot view playback!!!!


First thing to determine is if your (Playback Mode) is set for Auto or Hi 8 / 8. Select VTR setting and then select Menu. Scroll to PB Mode and select Auto. Now try playback.

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

No picture during playback on LCD or TV from my Sony DCR-TRV255E


Just use good quality Video Head Cleaning Cassette. Video head is dirty/ clogged.
