SOURCE: Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...

What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

I have a EX1 Hi8 too and I have had the same problem. This camera is very old and it has a lot of capacitors inside that are leaking and drying out. They need to be replaced. This is a huge and difficult job and it makes no sense to repair. I did it anyway.

Play back pre recorded HI8 tapes on my TRV130?


The Sony DCR-TRV130 is a D8 digital camcorder which is not compatible with Hi8 camcorders.
You need to have an Hi8 camcorder or DCR-TRV103 or similar camcorders that backward compatible with Hi8 camcorders.

How do I transfer hi 8 tapes to DVD without the working camcorder


Greetings jamhere,

I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy

8mm/Hi8/Digital 8


As this was quite some time ago, you probably already have your solution, but I just ran across this. Just in case you can use any other 8mm camcorder or deck if you can find one. Also if you still had it I would like to buy the Instruction manual from that old Canon ES780. Please write me back at bpgray@verizon.net if you have it. Thanks.

Not reading Hi8 tapes


Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
