Recording Sony Handycam video footage to video

I have a Sony Handycam that still records on size 8 (the small ones) videos. I can't get my footage to show when I connect the cables to the front of the VCR. Mainly I am trying to transfer our home movies to regular VCR videos.

I can get them to show on the TV if I plug it into the front of the TV, but then it won't record it from the VCR. It only records what is on the main TV channel.

PLEASE HELP...I have 2 years worth of videos to transfer.

You have to tell the vcr which input to record on. Instead of a channel try "Line 1" or "input 1" or "Video 1". you can get there by going to channel 01 and pressing channel down a few times. match whats written above the input jacks with what's on the screen.

How Do I Edit the Film?


Look for the output jacks on your camera, hook them to your computer's audio/video input. Try accessing the recording utility on the computer then upload footage through NTSC format. You can then edit the footage. If your camera and computer utilize S-video, use them for best resolution

Old Sony Handycam Video 8 CCD TR36


Head alignment (re-aligning the tracks) is not something we as owners can undertake - it has to be done professionally.
You can however quite safely clean the heads by using one of the dry cleaning tapes sold for the purpose. I have used an 8mm/Hi-8 cleaning tape made by TDK for a number of years with good results. Remember that if your heads are dirty both recording and playback will be affected and once you have cleaned the heads you need to test the camera by recording new footage and then playing it back to see if matters have improved. Good Luck.
