What are the differences in the record modes? (HQ, SP, & LP)


The amount of recording time on a disc depends on the recording mode selected. The approximate recording time for each of these modes is listed below:

  • HQ (High Quality): Recordable time is up to 20 minutes.
  • SP (Standard Play): Recordable time is up to 30 minutes.
  • LP (Long Play): Recordable time is up to 60 minutes.


  • NOTE: If you record in LP mode, the quality of the scenes may be degraded, or scenes with quick movement may appear with a block noise when you play back the disc.

    Sony TRV308 Camcorder is not picking up light when recording


    Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

    Do your videos come out dark when you play them back? Or Is it dark while you are recording?
    If it's dark while you are recording, is it dark in the viewfinder, or the LCD screen?

    If your videos come out dark when you play them back, check the manual exposure. Hit the exposure button and turn the sel/push execute wheel to change the exposure to lighter.

    If you are looking through the view finder to record and it's dark, check to make sure the window is clean.

    If your LCD screen looks dark while your recording, put the power switch to player, hit the menu button and scroll down to LCD, select it and turn the select wheel to brighter.

    I had to guess at what your problem was due to the information you provided, so I tried to cover the most obvious. If I failed to answer your question, please comment and be more specific.

    Hope this helps, and thank you for coming to FixYa.

    Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


    In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

    Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

    If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

    Format a cd


    First some explanations:

    The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

    VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

    VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

    My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

    Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

    1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
    2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
    3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
    4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
    5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
    6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
    7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

    Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

    Record button doesn't function


    You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
