Re: It just won't turn on
They are designed to be curious adult proof, hand it to your local 5 year old and it will be apart in no time =)
There are a few screws that tend to blend in on these, plus most of the case is held together with internal clips that will pop apart when enough pressure is applied.
Ok, now onto your power problem. There will most likely be a fuse (it won't look anything like any fuse you have seen before) near where the battery pack connects to the circuit board. It will probably be white in colour and only 1 or 2 mm long. It will look like most of the other components on the board but will have a marking nearby starting with "F" like F101 or something along those lines. The "F" is obviously for fuse.
Check any of those you see with a multimeter for continuity since there will be no physical damage to it.

This won't be the youngest, so after all these years some belts or rollers are worn out. You can't replace those yourself. To repair it will take at least a few hours, so I think you better start saving for a new cam. The modern camera's don't have moving parts, ro they are supposed to live longer. They also have better recording quality and are much cheaper than the Hi-8 we used to buy. My TR-2000 from Sony has the same problem. Costed 1800 dollar almost 20 years ago.
I have CCD-TRV57E and found camera would switch itself ON and could not turn off. Had switch replaced some years ago and is now fine. Also have a friend with same camera and had the same problem, also had switch replaced.
who bought this Kodak camera had the same problem!!!! i bought it.. then couple of months past..and would not turn on! I tried everything!! with my phone\'s charger it finally charged ..i let it charged for 3 hours then it still wouldn\'t turn on! :(
you may have a faulty camera there,,,or the vcr tape may be faulty and has spred some of the tape on the recording head try running a cleaning tape through the vcr first to clean the heads,,then use a new tape (not the old tape!) to try that out,, if its cleans the head up throw away the old tape so you never put it back in this vcr
I also have the same problem and after almost buying a replacement I thought I would try one time to get it to go.
What I did was start the cam without a tape in it, let it bring up the little red icon indicating no tape inserted, (it hadn't started flashing "PLEASE RE-OPERATE AFTER PUSHING RESET BUTTON" at this stage) then I inserted my tape. Hey presto, it works although for how long I don't know. I'll immediately start burn my tapes to disc while the going is good.
I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.
I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.
I've had mine for about 3 years and just last year it started giving me playback problems....the screen would have blue stripes across it and sound won't play. I could usually fix it by rewinding and playing again...but it's not correcting itself right now... I hope I didn't waste 60000 yen on this c_c;
