Everything works except it doesn't display any video while recording but will when playing back tape from another camera. Records audio like it's supposed to. Camera was in storage for 2 years.

Hello Howard I am thinking/sounds like that the problem is in the LCD display. How old is the camera, as it been stored in a safe location to avoid any serious damage and/or a dry location. Could possible where the display opens on the camera. May be you could find a local Sony dealer to take a look at it for you. Please let me know the out come of your camera. Ben.

Where is the reset button on the sony 560x camera?

I often process the postproduction in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3. But when I was to put Sony XAVC to it, I became astonished because I find XAVC is not compatible to Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 which is very wired. I don't understand why my AVCHD camcorder will output files which can not be edited in video editing software. I tired many converters and they all fail to handle the conversion of Sony XAVC to MOV. Finally, I find Aunsoft iMedia Converter for Mac which perfectly solve my problems. ... Learn more about it: http://www.auncam.com/aunsoft-imedia-converter-for-mac

How to use pinnacle 14 studio with sony cam tvr-318

You will need to have an i-Link cable, also known as a IEEE 1394 cable, which is a four pin to four pin cable. That will hooked to the DV output from your camera to the DV input on your computer, if so equipped. Also there is a cable with a four pin i-Link to USB cable which I use my self on my system to import DV from my camera to the edit program. Hope that this is helpful to you.

My steady shot ccd trv318

Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate and comment this answer).
