On my Sony Hi 8 Camcorder every time I try to record or play a tape,it does'n't play and only appears c:31:23


Hi,
This error comes due to missing reel pulse of mechanism, remove battery/ power source from camcorder and tap gently top cover of camcorder with your palm few times, reattach battery and check playback.
Hope this will solve your problem.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Can not find software to run my ccd-TRV138 camcorder on windows 7.can i be helped?


Hi,
Sony CCD-TRV138 is analog video-8 camcorder that can not be hooked directly with computer because computer needs digital data file where as this camcorder is an analog and has no digital file format.

If you want to transfer CCD-TRV138 movies in computer, you need to convert its analog Audio-Video signal into digital format then save it in computer for further process/ edit etc.

Hook CCD-TRV138 with DVD Recorder in AV Input and burn a DVD, this process will convert analog movie into digital data format, put that CD in your computer and copy-paste files in computer.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

The camera will not load a tape. Without a tape installed the loading mechanism works as it should. when a tape is placed in the camera it does not retract into the camera but opens back up as if to eject...


Symptom shows Dew sensor is activated and most probably you will see water-drop yellow sign flashing in LCD.
Remove battery / power source from camcorder and leave it for 1-2 hours, reattach battery/ power to camera and turn it on and check.
Thanks.

The cassette is stuck and the player will not eject it. when you turn it on it just makes a beeping noise.


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the cassette compartment will not open or the tape is stuck and will not eject.

IMPORTANT: If your camcorder model has a RESET button, first try pressing this button. If there is no RESET button, or pressing the button does not resolve the issue, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery from the camera.
  3. Remove the AC power supply from the camera.
  4. Slide the power switch on the camera to the VTR , VCR or CAMERA mode for 15 seconds.
  5. Slide the power switch back to the OFF position.
  6. Connect the AC power supply to the camera.
  7. Attempt to open the cassette compartment.
