Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV350 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Choppy Video A Couple days ago my camcorder would record but would not let me view the video afterward. A few minutes after recording and trying to watch it, the camcorder started saying "Cleaning Cassette". I recently bought one and followed the directions but the camcorder would not allow me to use it, instead beeping and flashing "C:31:22". I tried recording again and it finally allowed me to view what I had a recorded but it was very choppy, both the video and the audio. What should I do?

I had same problem. Don't buy a cleaner. Look inside camcorder and make sure both reel turners are equal in height...they can slide down. Turn both of them...one of mine was down and also did not turn to make contact with tape. We got it to turn and the message C31:23 and the dinging quit. Camera instantly worked like it used to. Good luck.

I just got my Xacti CS1 and after I shot a couple of test videos, I checked the playback. On the camera screen, playback is flawless, it's quite great, however, when I play the videos back on my macbook in...


http://us.sanyo.com/dynamic/product/Downloads/VPC-CS1_OM_English-6223243.pdf

p.60 of the manual describes different recording modes with lower resolutions (1280x720) pixels and lower frames per second (30fps).

I would choose from the menu to record in a lower resolution and lower fps mode so that the quicktime program can display the video at a good rate for you.

I don't know what kind of macbook you have, but usually such problems are due to the older macs not having enough speed to display high definition video with all its data all at once.

I used to have problems a few years ago, before i upgraded my hardware on PC's, with choppy video that was High Definition.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Playing DV footage that was recorded on a different camera


Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.

Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.

Sound Problem


Digital video camcorder are recording signals in very thin line (as thin as 1/8 of a hair.) Therefore, following symptoms may appear if video heads become dirty even a little. Video heads may become dirty under the following conditions: (1) When using the camcorder in humid or hot places. (2) When using cassette with damaged or dirty tape. (3) When using the camcorder in dusty places. (4) When using the video heads without cleaning them for a long time. Note: Before you make important recording, clean the video heads and make a test recording first. We also recommend cleaning the video heads after use before storing the camcorder.
