Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV310 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I have a Sony Handycam DCR TRV-340. I was trying to recharge the original battery with no luck -- the display outside the fold-out LCD lights up and a little battery icon appears, though the bar meter would not advance, nor would it show the battery was charging. So it looked like an obvious dead rechargeable battery that needed replacing. I ordered a replacement battery, placed it in the camera and now I get nothing. The camera doesn't respond at all, to either the battery in or out, or only with the a/c charger/power supply attached. I checked with a multimeter the end of the charger cord and I'm getting a good 8 volts DC. Even when I put the old battery in and try to charge it, the camera does not respond like it did before. Nothing in all modes (vcr, charge, record or for still pictures). It's like a dead weight now. Help! Is there a circuit breaker of some sort or an internal fuse that I might have blown? The camera has worked flawlessly until this...and I want to archive or even watch my dozen or so tapes, and hopefully I can fix it myself. I'm pretty saavy with electronics and have fixed cd players, etc. and don't want to send it in for repairs if possible. Thanks for your help!

I've never fully troubleshot a camcorder, but I would think they probably have a fusible link as protection, however, you should make sure the battery terminas inside the camcorder are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). I would also suspect the on/off button as being oxidized or broken. You can open it up and try to check these things, but it might take some tracing out the circuitry without a schematic, which would be difficult to obtain.
You might check on Ebay for a working unit- it might be easier, or an alternative.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

When you close the LCD into its folded position and use the viewfinder instead do you see a clear picture. if you see a clear picture then the multi strand cable than runs between the LCD and the motherboard has some of the strands broken. take it to a repairman to sloder the broken strands.

Sony handycam got wet now wont recharge or work off batteries dcr trv 270


Hi,
you can try removing everything you can remove from it, i,e battery and anythig else detachable.
Place it in a warm dry place for 24 hours. Airing cupboard, on top of or near a radiator ( wrapped on on a towel to avoid direct heat.
then open the dvd drive door, and gently blow warm air into it with a hair-dryer ( medium setting )
try again after it,s thoroughly dried out.
replace the battery, and try again.
If this does,nt work, i,d suggest buy a replacement, or make a clain on your insurance, for contents if you have one.
Mike @ compurepair.
p.s it,ll cost more to repair, than to buy a new one, and never be the same camera again.
good-luck Mike.
