Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder

1 Answer

Blue screen when I push PLAY, audio distorted.

I get a blue screen when I press PLAY, and the audio is distorted.
I had this problem last night but the audio was more clear, so whatever this problem is, it's getting worse.
I put a Head Cleaning Tape in last night, and that solved the issue for a little bit..... but today I'm back to the same problem. The Head Cleaning Tape isn't fixing it this time.
Is it possible that the Head Cleaning Tape needs to be replaced?

    Thanks. I actually used the Head Cleaner Tape a little more and got it working again. I think this is just a temporary fix though, and I'll look into getting it cleaned. 




    I'm not sure where I could take it though?

    Helllo,


    Where can I take a 8mm Handycam for professional repairs? Being such an old camera, is it common to find somewhere locally? 


    And about how much does it usually cost, ballpark?

The heads are clogged or the alignment is out. In either case, a professional cleaning and alignment should be done. This should not require any parts, just labor. Bring this to a shop as specialized equipment and tapes are required for proper alignment.

It sounds like the on-board audio is dying, you could replace the motherboard but it is not necessary. You can pick up an internal sound card for around $20-$30, here is an example of the kind you would want.

Because they are so cheap and easy to install, i would say this is the solution that will save you the most time and frustration if you're willing to spend a little cash.

The screen will not come out and the unit will not play. The blue light comes on to switch from radio/cd/tv, etc. and the red light comes on when you push cd eject, but otherwise it will not play any


MAKE SURE YOU PRESS THE SOURCE BUTTON AS THE SCREEN WOULD NOT COME OUT FOR THE RADIO BUT WHEN PRESSED AGAIN WILL PROBABLY COME OUT FOR THE TV

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Hi-8...


I am having the same problem. When I hit Rewind or Fast Foward, i can see the image moving clearly.
When I hit play though, I just get a BLUE screen with the Play arrow displayed. So it's playing, I just got a blue screen. And last night, I got the blue screen but I could hear the audio. 
Then I put a head cleaning tape in the camera, and I did get the picture back on for a little bit.
Skip to this morning, and we are back to the Blue screen again. Only this time, I am getting no audio. And I the head cleaning tape back in but it's not helping anymore.

DVD movies do not play


A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.

2. DVD METHOD (Permanent)
** Insert a DVD
** Let it play until you hear sound
** Press STOP twice on remote
** Enter 26604
** Press ENTER
Credit: Adam P.

The blue warning screen should immediately go away after pressing the last digit of "26604." Still press ENTER as a precaution.
