Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing. Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still a blank blue screen no images showing at all. Can you help.

The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.

Can you erase a tape on Sony DCR-TRV25 camcorder?


It probably won't have an erase function as such. Just record over it. Point the camera at a blank wall if you want to get rid of what is on it, otherwise just rewind and use it next ime you want to record.

I think it is Sony handycam but not sure what model it is.

Thanks.

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.

Sony DCR-HC38E Exporting miniDV video to computer


I had a similar problem with my Sharp camorder.
The preview window on XP simply displays corrupted images.
At the end, I bought a different firewire card and it worked for me.

Good luck.
