Check the battery is charged and properly attached. Is the battery old? They don't last for ever.

I try to connect my sony CCD-TRV608 camcorder to my pc but nothing happens. Please help?


Hello, well you will find if you use Windows Vista/Win 7 no drivers for Sony cameras are loaded, none as far as I am aware are made.
But if you use Firewire cable as I do you wont need drivers, BUT make sure your camera is connected to PC via Fire Wire before you turn PC on, as it wont work if you get this wrong.
Bye

I cant conect in pc my web cam sony dcr hc21e handycam i have windows 7


Right, well your problem is very common, it is due to Windows 7 (I have it) not having very many drivers built-into it for cameras, and my own Sony camera driver is not in 7 either ok. So you are going to have to download your films from camera to PC with a cable called Firewire because USB cable wont work without windows drivers, firewire will.
Lets just hope your PC if it is not old has a Firewire socket at rear, as older PC wont have one.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
good luck
