Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
Got my video camera about 5 years ago now was working fine but its not used often, So im not sure if its just old now and not working.
the problem i have is that when play videos / play the videos through the television, 3 thick 'grey bars' appear on the screen as if a cables been pulled out or not in properly. not sure if its the camera but all the tapes are doing the same and they were working fine before.
any help would be apreciated, thank you.
What you are seeing is the result of "digital dropout". This is usually caused by dirty heads. You can try to use a cleaning tape, but those often do not work. A professional cleaning will clear this up. A word of caution though: it is easy to mess up the alignment of these units if you are not trained on this type of repair. Please do not attempt any repair other than the use of a cleaning tape. The potential for additional damage is too great for any DIY attempts.
If the cleaning tape does not resolve the problem, please update this with your location so I can try to recommend a repair facility close by.
