    Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.

    if that doesn't work try

    Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

How can i use camera to take ntsc movie


The DCR-TRV27E only records in PAL format. You can use it to play back a tape recorded in NTSC but you cannot record one.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camcorder works.

My camcorder tape door won't close


Try removing the battery for a few seconds, and then re-inserting. This seems to reset something on my DCR-TRV20, and it starts closing properly.

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks
