Question about Sony P6-120MP 8mm Tape

1 Answer

I have a lot of Sony Pg-120MP Video 8 tapes of when my kids were small. I no longer have the camera and don't have any way to watch the tapes anymore. Can they be converted even to a VHS tape or to disc? What options do I have for viewing the tapes?

I can't see any image of my tapes on the Sony DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder.


Try playing one of the tapes on another Sony DV/DVCAM device and make sure the tape is OK. Also, try running a cleaning tape through the camera for 8-14 seconds (no longer!) on playback. If this does not remedy the problem, then your camera needs repair.

I have a GE CG818A Camcorder, when I play it it only plays black and white. Was wondering if there is a used Sony or any camcorder that would play my Video8 P6-120MP tape, in color.


I have the exact same camera and same exact same problem. Any analog Video8 or Hi-8 camcorder or VCR will play these tapes.

By using the same cassettes as Hi8, many (NOT ALL) Digital8 (produced by Sony exclusively) camcorders are able to play analog Video8/Hi8 recordings, preserving compatibility with already recorded analog tapes.

you can connect Digital8 camcorders to your computer to download your movies for editing or Internet use.

As of 2008, Digital8 camcorders have been removed from the equipment offered by Sony.

The problem is that DVD disks simply never worked in cameras, that is why Sony no longer make old cameras that use DVD, Hard-Drive cameras have same problems, grab a digital 8 camera (tapes) they do work, and picture is best on tape too.

The tape broke. How do I get it reconnected?


is the tape outside the cassette? or inside the case itself (if inside we have to open and connect it to reel) but outside you need the paper thin masking tape 1/2 to 1 inch wide (cellophane is to thick)...now take both ends of tape..the tape on left side cut a 1/8 inch (hold in left hand cut on a diagonal toward the left)..(just FYI this is called splicing) now the right one cut it about 1/8 inch also in the same manner toward the left)..now cut a 1/2 inch of masking place on table...place the right tape on tape leaving at least half for the other part to go on....now take the scissors cut off any excess masking tape on both edges of tape...this should help get your first job at hand done....recording to dvd....have fun

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Cannot view playback!!!!


First thing to determine is if your (Playback Mode) is set for Auto or Hi 8 / 8. Select VTR setting and then select Menu. Scroll to PB Mode and select Auto. Now try playback.

8mm Tape stops when rewinding


try this:
some cameras have a memory where they begin make sure the memory is off or cleared then try to rewind or try fwd to end clear memory then rewind tape...

now sometime tapes of 120 are really not recommended because of the load of tape amd ost have a tension sensor 60m is usually the best recommended

YOu may be confusing HI8 with 8mm. One being analog,the other being digital, and a slight difference in form factor
