Sony tr105e camcorder. Frame wouldn't lock on playback. Found one of the left hand pulley assemblies had dropped into the bottom of the cassette housing. Replaced it and it worked ok intermittently, but now another pulley assembly next to the first one had come loose.

Tried to replace the pulley asembly but, at 83 yrs old, my hands were too shaky for success. So I'm selling it for spares and have purchased a used TRV340E on eBay to view and convert my 150qty Video8 cassettes to DVD.
However, I do have a problem with my Sony EV-C3E PAL 8mm VCR - the picture won't lock (i.e., the Frame Hold doesn't synchronise). Does anybody have a simple DIY solution?

A simple and effective solution for playback m2ts/mts files on Xbox 360


Xbox 360 does not have supports for m2ts/mts files as PS3 does, so if you have the needs of watching your Sony, Canon, etc. AVCHD camcorder captured footages on your wide screen TV through your Xbox 360 console, format conversion is essential. This article aims to give you a simple and effective solution for playback m2ts/mts files on Xbox 360. There you go:
Required software:
Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter
Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter is designed for those who have an AVCHD camcorder but unfortunately get stuck in MTS and M2TS video format. It does a good job in converting MTS, M2TS, M2T, TS, TP and TRP to versatile video and audio formats. People who have no way to edit MTS/ M2TS files with Adobe Premiere, Avid, Sony Vegas etc can find a best solution by converting them to useable formats such as WMV(VC-1), MOV (AVC) and MPEG2. The output formats covers common audio, SD video, HD video, Flash video, DVD as well as customized formats for Xbox 360, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Zune, Creative Zen, Archos, Nokia etc. All these output formats enable you to playback, edit and upload the footages shot by Sony, Canon, JVC and Panasonic AVCHD Camcorders. By the way, the copy protections removed Blu-ray .m2ts streams are workable with this program.&nbsp;
Following is the step-by-step instruction:
1. Click "Add" button to load mts/m2ts files into Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter

2. Select output format for Xbox 360
Click on the drop-down menu of "Format", and then go to "Zune/Xbox 360 Device" – "Xbox 360 Video – Windows Media Video (*.wmv)".

3. Customize audio and video settings
Click on "Settings" button, and then you will be able to adjust audio and video parameters like codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, audio channels in the following window. Do not forget clicking "OK" button to confirm your settings. BTW, if you want to combine multiple files to be as a single file, you can tick "Merge into one file".

4. Click "Convert" button to start converting mts/m2ts files for playback on Xbox 360
As long as the conversion is finished, you can get the output files via clicking on "Open" button with ease. And now the files are prepared for playback on your Xbox 360.

Hi, I have Sony TRV238E HI8 Camera recorder. When I in play/edit mode, only have blue screen on the LCD with counter to and other parameters . In this mode if I move the tape Rew. or FF I have regular...


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the issue is with the dirt in the Video Head of the Camcorder. You can try using new Hi8 tapes for recording the videos to check if they are playing back normally. If the audio is working normally in the Camcorder, then the issue is with the dirt on the video head. If the issue persists with all the tapes, then the video head can be cleaned using a dry Video Head Cleaner Cassette. You can purchase the cassette from the Sony Authorized dealers or from the local electronics store. Please make sure that the cleaning cassette is compatible with the Camcorder.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sony trv59e casssette camcorder, dont know how to transfer cassettes to discs on laptop.


Does your camcorder has USB connector? If it doesn't, you can't transfer files to PC because it is analog camcorder.
Digital camcorder has USB connector for PC and new models have DV connectors as well.
