Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Firewire board burnt out

The firewire board has burnt out on my dcr-vx2000e due to a faulty firewire socket on my pc for the second time.
I paid an arm and a leg for the repair last time so I am looking to source the board myself.
Does anyone know what this board is called and where to purchase it?
Also another problem when the tape mechanism is in motion it makes a vibrating sound as though something is loose which is picked up on the microphone.... Any ideas??
Thanks
James

There is no firewire board in this camera. The firewire chip is mounted on the main board, and it is a BGA chip, means is difficult to replace.

I have been told the I need a "fire wire" port to transfer video on my Sony TRV460 camcorder to my pc. I was supplied with the ubs wire with the camera, why isn't it working?


USB and firewire cables are completely different and are not interchangeable. A firewire cable is rarely supplied with a camera and 99% of the time you have to buy one. They are available are most places that sell computer gear.
The camera will have a 4 pin socket and most PCs use a 6 pin socket. If your computer has a 6 pin socket you require a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable. Firewire is also called IEEE1394 or iLink.

I can not download sony DCR-HC54E mini DV to PC, please assist me in details.


You require a firewire cable to connect to the PC then use Movie Maker to capture the footage.
Cameras use a 4 pin socket and computers can use 4, 6, or 9 pin sockets.
Determine which socket is on the trget computer and buy the necessary cable.
FYI: Most Laptops use 4 pin and most Desktops use 6 pin. Avoid adapters if possible.

For example; if your Desktop computer has a 6 pin socket you buy a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable. Firewire is also called iLink or IEEE 1394.

DCR-HC52 fire wire port doesn't work. Have tried on several computer, none of them even see the camera. Best Buy tried using a different cable same results


This happens only mostly if you connect camera on Firewire AFTER you been PC okay, so plug your camera in the Firewire sockets then put your PC on, then the PC will open the firewire port up for use and set up a user port adrs for the port.

I cant conect in pc my web cam sony dcr hc21e handycam i have windows 7


Right, well your problem is very common, it is due to Windows 7 (I have it) not having very many drivers built-into it for cameras, and my own Sony camera driver is not in 7 either ok. So you are going to have to download your films from camera to PC with a cable called Firewire because USB cable wont work without windows drivers, firewire will.
Lets just hope your PC if it is not old has a Firewire socket at rear, as older PC wont have one.

Hello i brought a sony handycam dcr-hc40e how and why can i get the usb driver from as it still dont pick it up on windows vista im doing a film course to so this is really bugging me


As most cameras made by Sony now they all mostly need the Firewire cable to send your movies to the PC, note that with a firewire un-like a USB connection you do not need drivers, I should know because I have been pulling my hair out for 6 days thinking a USB cable will do it, but no it will not.
A Firewire cable will need a firewire socket on the PC okay, it is a good idea to check if your PC has that type socket.
