    Hi,


    One of the the Hi8 tapes that won't play is FUJI Hi8 ME. Don't see a digital reference on there. Should I assume its digital since it plays the same as the TDK?


    I now see a digital reference on the TDK (digital 8) tapes. But no digital reference on the Fuji tape.


    Thanks.

Hi,
CCD-TRV65 is analog camcorder that can playback only analog format Video-8 tapes, either V-8 of Hi-8
This camcorder will give you static screen and no sound if you playback Digital Format recorded tape, Sony has two types of camcorders, analog and digital, both camcorders can be recognize by model numbers, if model number starts with letters CCD-xxx this is analog camera and if model starts with DCR-xxx it is digital camera, both models use same Video-8 tapes but recording signal format is different.
Digital camcorder that model starts with DCR-xxx can playback both analog and digital format tapes.
I'm Sony camera tech so I know this difference.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

    NO, I'm not talking about what manufacturing companies wrote on tapes.
    I'm talking about signal format that has been recorded on tape. Put that tape in digital camcorder, you will see picture in playback but analog camcorder wont recognize its signal format because it does not have proper hardware/ circuitry to process that video signal.

Sony CCD-TRV65. Blue screen during playback


Just bought the exact one from a yard sale for 20 bucks. Had the very same problem with the blue screen on playback. What i did is replace the battery in the small bay when you open the viewfinder. Try playing your tape again and it will work!

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

Hi8 Playback Problem


Clean the tape heads and see if that makes a difference.  If that doesn't work, it could be the tape motor is going out.  Thats typical behavior when that happens.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
