Will not play rewind or fast forward


Here are some things to check:
1. will the tape door open - if so look for foreign objects inside
2. does the camera power up normally - viewfinder ok?
3. is a tape jammed inside?
If this does not help, I would say your chances of getting repairs are slim. Best to cut your losses and modernize. You can get your old tapes copied to a newer format.

How can i convert tapes to dvd


You can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using A/V interface to transfer the recordings to Computer.
Once you transfer the recordings from tape to computer, you can use any burning software to burn the recordings to DVDs.
In order to capture the analog videos, you can use the Windows Movie Maker available in the Computer.

When i put a tape in it beeps then would not eject


Ether the tape is cought inside the camera or the eject motor is not releasing the tape inside try the following

1. Take battery out
2, put it back in and press the eject but with the camera up to your ear.

If you hear it trying to eject the tape got ate inside the unit best thing here to do is take it to a camera shop have them extract the tape.

Hope this does help please do make sure you rate before you leave.

When turning on to vcr or camera, camera beeps repeatly


Sounds like the camera ATE THE TAPE will not eject,fastforward, or rewind.. This will need to be repaired , worse case a belt slipped or something got misalligned inside, I would recommend a camera shop so you can save the tape otherwise digging into this yourself could stirr up more issues in the long run. Please do be considerate of facts here that we cannot see your unit and this error is because the tape got ATE or something got jammed.

Thanks please do leave some feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

How can I convert my 8mm tapes to a digital format and save to my hard drive?


If you have DVD Recorder then hook your Video-8 camera in analog AV input and burn a DVD, this will convert analog video/ audio signal of camcorder in digital format and transfer the data on DVD as well. Put that dvd in computer and save it in computer.

there are 2 causes why your camcorder is eating up the tapes; either the tape head is dirty or there is a mechanical fault inside your unit (something might be misaligned that causes the film to be sucked in).

try to clean the tape head of your unit by using a tape head cleaner, it is like the tapes that you use with the unit but instead of a film there is a cloth like material inside that is used to clean the tape heads to avoid the film sticking to it

if the issue still persists then you should contact your manufacturer and set up a repair for the unit

Broken camcorder 8mm tape


Hi There, You can fix your tape yourself. 1- wind out tape from both sides of cassette. 2- cut both sides to form straight edges. 3- cut a small thin piece of clear scotch tape. 4- from cassette tape, put both sides together with recorded side facing down-- in other words you will be putting the scotch tape on the inside of the recorded tape. 4- line up the two ends and splice them together. - cut the excess scotch tape from the edges. Make sure there is no sticky stuff left there because if there is, it could rip out your video heads. The tape should only be played once and at that time, should be rerecorded to dvd or another media.
Hope this helps, mr cicmo

Tape door won't shut and message C:31:40


You need a qualifier Tech trained from Sony to repair your CAM
Your problem is that the cassette compartment it had 2 sensor and a few contact to detect what kind of tape you are insert like normal, metal or Digital 8 or Hi 8 or 8 Standar or cleaning tape so the system control would auto adjust according the tape
Those contact conducted by flexible cable now that FC may be cut or the sensor faulty when you insert the tape the CAM detected 1 side of the tape so it juded like some thing wrong with the tape then it will not load the tape in because it designed to protect the tape and protect mechanism
Without the tape no problem because the sensor or contact at the right corner of CAM did not detect any thing
If You want to know how it detect what kind of the tape, just turn the D8 tape up side down, you can see the holes on the left and right corner where is the tab for save and record
You need to replace 1 chassis LS assembly it cost about $250 to $350 if you are in AUSTRALIA
I hope that give you some ideas

Hi 8 tapes will only play on a Hi 8 machine. I would recommend you search for a place that will do the video transfer for you. There are several in my town and likely you could find one on the internet.
