Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
Did you find a solution to your problem? I see the exact same issue. I am wondering if I should by another D8 camera and see if the tapes play fine on them. I just hope the tapes are not lost or gotten slightly "corrupted" due to magnetic contact or going thru airport scanners.
I'm seeing the same problem with my tapes. I think the problem is that the machine somehow is no longer able to recognize the recording as Digital8 and thus trying to play them back as Hi8. My TRV460 has a PB mode setting; however, it only let you select either Auto or Hi8/8, so I cannot force it to playback in Digital8 mode. I'm not sure how to work this out.
I too was having a problem playing back my 8mm in my TRV460. The audio and video was both very glitchy. I tried what dyz66 said and rewound to the start of the tape,and then recorded about 10 seconds of meaninless video. After that the whole tape played nice and clear. Thanks for the idea. I believe from here on out I'm going to buy some new tapes to try and avoid this.

I did find a way to playback all but one tape. This is what I did. I rewound the tapes to the beginning and made a couple of seconds of new recordings on them. For whatever reason, the machine was able to playback the rest of the old recordings after that. Give it a try, hopefully this will work for you.
