Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV22 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

4 Answers

Sony dcr-trv22 I have been using my camcorder as webcam, but it shuts off after like 5 minutes of use. I thought it had something to do with saving power or something but its plugged in with the dc power. Is there a setting that I can change? Any other ideas?

Re: Sony dcr-trv22

Disabling your camcorder's auto shut off This can be a frustrating problem.steps are... 1. Remove any videotapes in camcorder. 2. Remove memory sticks, cards, or other media. 3. Power off the camcorder. 4. Remove the battery if on battery power. 5. Plug in the camcorder AC adapter. 6. Power on the camcorder. This should work for most brands of camcorders. good luck.

I have a Sony dcr-trv22 and I found that if you use it as a webcam in the camera mode and if you take the tape out, it will not turn off after five minutes.

Re: Sony dcr-trv22

Just FYI, www.silentwitness.com has Sony modify the camcorders for use in mobile applications so they don't shutdown. I have no cure for this, but I do know the stock models are programmed to do this to prevent overheating. It has to do a lot with the warranty. i.e. you have a one year warranty. The unit can't (without modifications) run 24x7. Said modification almost triples the price of the camera.

Windows XP & Vista should automatically recognize the camera (hardware) when you plug in the USB cable. You don't need the Sony software.

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
