Changing audio track only

Is it possible to record on the audio portion of the tape and leave with video intact? I would like to change the soundtrack at the source (the master) and without erasing the video.

Not possible unless you copy it to another tape. The audio track is married to the video track in Hi-8

Hi, I have a sony tvr 140E. When I try to play back a tape that was recorded from another digital 8 camcorder I get blue screen. when I play back a tape recorded on my camcorder plays fine. Any...


This smacks of the same problem that the old VCR's used to have. One of you are out of sync. The tape records on a portion of the tape in a sort of straight line track. Think of it as your track is down 1/16" from the top. The other camera tracks it's video down 1/8" instead. That's why in playback it can't read it. The only cure is a realignment. Nimsgame

How do you record without sound



Hi there,

There does not appear to be any provision on the camcorder menu, to mute the audio.

As an alternative, I would recommend you connect the camcorder to your computer or laptop (via firewire if possible) and transfer the footage onto your computer's hard drive.

You can then use your computer's Movie Maker application to edit the footage - here you can either remove the audio track, or overlay your new audio soundtrack.

Good luck !

No picture when trying to record


Check the following link. Call them and explain the symptoms and they should send shipping label to you so you can send the camcorder in for repair. I had my TRV38 repaired in about 2 weeks. Good luck.

Blocks of noise


Don't know about the slow motion, but the noise is usually from dirty heads. Just like a cassette player it needs them cleaned periodically. Dip a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol and rub over the entire path the tape takes. You'll see a little block that actually reads the tape. Thats what you need to clean.

Make sure you eject the tape and remove the battery while the tape drive is open to clean it. Rubbing alcohol dries fast but give it an extra ten minutes and check it again.

Video recorder while the heads were dirty will not change however new video should be clean.

You may also have a bent tape carrier that is putting your video off track. It needs to be pushed or pulled to realign it.

It it's not the cause though, this can make playing back the earlier tapes more difficult since they will read and record in a slightly different part of the tape.


Good luck!

Audio is not recorded at all!! Please help


I had the same problem but lucky for me my camera was still under warranty. After sending it for repairs and to my amazement, panasonic replaced my LCD and LENS (what?) and it worked fine. They did mention about a manual reset. Not the button thing you press. I was bewildered but happy the audio levels are working. But soon after then, I found out I couldn't capture my old tapes that i previously recorded!

Not much help,

GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder makes clicking sound when tape running


the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.

send it in for repair.

Counter reset for a press of each record


It brings to mind that the drum is not picking up the time code track from the previous pass nor is it able to lay down a new suitable track. Have you tried a dry type cleaning tape? It sounds like you have a clogged head. Other possiblities will involve repair. Drum connection problems can occur for instance. If you are using maxell tape you have a higher percentage of possible cleaning issues. Good luck, magic seadog

Auidio drops


while your monitoring the sound when recording it cuts out or while you playback the tape it dropps out? if it's noticed during playback it's one 3 things. the heads are dirty, the tape tension is low or the heads are bad. send it to video tech service in sacramento. that guy is super cool.

Record button doesn't function


You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.


Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
