Unit may have been set to wrong exposure preset. Taking video at night of fireworks can be tricky as a lens openning for night shots may be overexposed when taking shots of sudden bright flashes of fireworks. You might try moving the camera vantage point at least 60 - 100 feet away. This will give the camera additional time to adjust it's optics

How do u delete stuff on tapes from a sony handycam vision


I don't know if there's a function to delete video from a used 8mm, but you can do it the old way



1. Option: the first way occurs accidentally many times because you take video on top of what's already recorded... meaning record on top of the old tape


2. Option: leave the lens on the cam, and press record... it will record a blacked-out screen on the tape with nothing on it.


hope this helps

I have a sony handy cam model ccd-trv37 on which I just recorded my son at his high school musical. i now want to transfer this tape recording to my Apple Imac so I can edit it and send it to friends. Is...


Yes, firewire or IEEE1394 also called iLink.
Most cameras have a 4 pin connection and Macs a 6, newer models use 9 pin.
iMovie should be on your Mac and this will capture the footage.

Yes It Is Possible.
1. Cable options you can use S-video or RCA.
2. VHS payer that has a recording option. Make sure that it supports the Sony Handycam 8mm.
3. The procedure on how to transfer the 8mm to VHS is the same as how you view your video on the TV.
4. S-video or RCA should be connected on the Handycam and the other end is on the TV.

5. You can follow the instruction on page 27 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37)
6. You can also follow page 52 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 )

We own a Sony handy cam model CCD-TRV37 and the tape will not come out. When pressing the eject button a little yellow arrow blinks upward on the screen and a code C:32:20 blinks in the upper right corner....


Error C:32:20 indicates that the take up reel of the cassette that winds the tape into the video cassette is not taking up the tape fast enough thus causing slacking when unloading.
Remove the battery or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning.
if this fails take the camera to a repairman to remove the tape manually.

Erasing the tape on a sony handycam vision please


Well the cheapest way is to go into record mode, cap the lens with the black lens cap and record a 'black' picture on the tape. This will erase all the pictures on the tape and leave you with a 'black' screen on the whole tape.

Sony CCD-TRV85. Tape Stuck - C31:22.


my guess is that there is a problem with the tape. Does it work with other tapes? Or haven't you tried?

Error code C:32:20


My best solution, is to pull all power sources form the camera for 24 hours. If this does not work, then take the small screws surrounding the Tape housing, in order to try and get the tape out. Best of luck dude ;)

NIGHT SHOT USED W/ TOO MUCH LIGHT MAY HAVE WRECKED IT.


"Nightshot" mode removes infrared filter from light path, fixes exposure to 1/60th second and sets iris to maximum.

Probably bad CCD, possibly could salvage from another camera.
Cameras are easy to take apart, but ribbon cables are VERY delicate and difficult to remove from connectors on main board.

My suggestion is to buy another camcorder, which uses the same tape and to use the old one to rewind tapes and for video transfers.
