There might have been some sort of residue on the "bad tape" that you played in this camcorder. If you are only getting a blue screen when trying to play back your tapes now, you should try a head cleaning tape. Play the cleaning tape for 5 to 10 seconds and then try your tape again. If it is not all better, repeat this process (only in intervals of 5 to 10 seconds at a time). A head cleaning tape is a little more abrasive than your regular tapes. This will probably do the trick for you. Sony makes an excellent miniDV Head Cleaner. If you do not have one, your local camera shop may or you can find them online reasonably priced.

Hope this has helped you.

We can see the image in fast forward or rewind but and no audio


Many parts are still available on these camcorders however if it needs a video head for example, and it's not avaiable it may be a better idea to get another 8mm camcorder off ebay, or maybe a pawn shop. just test them with a new blank tape first before putting your family tapes in.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.

Incompatible Tape


try a cleaning tape first - best not to rewind the cleaning tape because it will put back the crud previously removed ? into your heads and guides ( last tape to play is prime suspect ) ; - - digital heads wear faster than analog so a new set of heads is next possibility but if the cleaning tape works . . . retire your library soon as possible .
