Hi,
For that to have a chance at working you will need to have an s-video cable for the picture part and standard audio cables for the sound part...that way the VCR is putting out a digital signal to the camera...
Then follow the setup instructions and make sure that you have it set for input from outside source..
I find that many times the manufacturers test this under very controlled conditions, but often in the real world it does not work so well...

I need help with my Sony DCR-TRV250. I am trying to play a tape on my VCR and record onto my Sony Camcorder.


I believe that this particular model does not have an A/V input. The A/V jack on the camcorder is output only. This link will provide all of the specs on this camcorder.

Dub a tape that is playing through my camcorder on TV


A vcr or dvd-recorder only reads the input signal. It does not care where it is coming from, only that it is there. You would have to run it through the vcr or dvdr for it to read the signal, or copy it to your computer and burn it to dvd.

Either the camera or the vcr is dirty. Try running a cleaning cassette through both, but bare in mind that tapes which were recorded while the camera was dirty will ALWAYS look like that. Forever.

You connect cable from camera to an adaptor cable with phono plugs in and scart out. Plug the scart connector to the vcr scart input and press record on vcr and camera. Remember to choose the scart input on your vcr.

Sony TRV22 as webcam?


It?s supposed to be very easy. You should connect you camera through the USB port, turn it on, and then you have a new webcam. Maybe the cable or the connection is busted. Daniel
