    When I try to play back what I've recorded it goes to the blue screen, I have audio, but nothing visual. This only happens occasionally and sometimes it shows lots of static. I can hear like a clicking crunching noise when the tape first goes in as well...I'd really like to figure out the problem :(

    same problem, only some tapes work and others are jumpy with static. i tried taking the static tape out of the cassette shell and putting it into a working shell but this did not fix the static.

    same problem with some tapes and not with others. makes me think it's the tapes and not dirty heads.

Your video heads are probably dirty. I have the same problem with mine too. If you buy a 8mm video cassette cleaner, it should work. Unless there is some other problem.

How do I erase a hi8 tape on a sony ccd trv318 camcorder


Don't think you can erase it, just record over it.
If you really have to erase something you don't want on it, you can always rewind and then put on the lense cap and record.

Can I use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes in my DCR_TRV250E?If so would I be able to playback recorded tapes on the UK televisions?.


DCR-TRV250E is a PAL version camera of the Digital8 format.
Yes you can use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes. The camera will record a PAL digital picture on the tapes which means that you can play back the tapes in PAL and therefore you will be able to playback recorded tapes on UK televisions because they are also of the PAL format.

Hello. I have a Sony trv318 hi8 video camera that gets no input from the lens. It plays back tapes fine and if you try to video tape something you get sound but the screen is just black.


I do not know how to fix your camera but I would be willing to buy it from you. I need to be able to play tapes so that I can transfer them to DVD. If you are interested please contact me. Tami19582009athotmail.com

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Sony TRV460 D8-->Hi8 switching


I too was having a problem playing back my 8mm in my TRV460. The audio and video was both very glitchy. I tried what dyz66 said and rewound to the start of the tape,and then recorded about 10 seconds of meaninless video. After that the whole tape played nice and clear. Thanks for the idea. I believe from here on out I'm going to buy some new tapes to try and avoid this.
