Hi8 to dvd

My hi8 sony camera was stolen.  No other hi8 camera will play my tapes (not even a new or used sony camera).  How can I transfer my tapes without the original camera?  Thanks

Greetings ocean view,

My suggestion would be to find a retailer who transfers video tape to dvd. They use an actual machine to do this and it should recognize your tape. This might solve your problem.

I hope this helps!
Sincerely,

Dorothy

Sony hi8 tape has snapped and I want to repair it as it has sentimental value?


If the tape snaps or cut itself, try to open the cartridge by removing the 4 screws on its sides and carefully attached something like a Scotch tape on each end to mend the video tape. Once done, it will play smoothly when you try to play it back on your sony Hi8 camcorder. I'm sure this helps because I am doing it when a client has torn tapes that needs to be transferred to dvd's. ^_^

Hello. I have a Sony trv318 hi8 video camera that gets no input from the lens. It plays back tapes fine and if you try to video tape something you get sound but the screen is just black.


I do not know how to fix your camera but I would be willing to buy it from you. I need to be able to play tapes so that I can transfer them to DVD. If you are interested please contact me. Tami19582009athotmail.com

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Can't see how to play Hi8 tapes on this Sony dcr-trv340e pal camera


It's a Digital Hi8. Your tapes are Analog.
But it should play Analog also.
In the menu play with "PB Mode" settings.

How do I transfer hi 8 tapes to DVD without the working camcorder


Greetings jamhere,

I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

Hi8 playback problem


your guides have come loose , probably - the digital sound will be next to go because the bottom edge of your tapes are being folded - open the cassette tape lid by pressing the small pin near one hinge and gently lifting the door - if there are any creases ? get the guides aligned ! to protect your library ; ( if there are no creases , try a sony d8 cleaning tape - once ! before getting a repair quote ) ;
