My Sony DCR-TRV740 camera I just purchased (used), has a playback problem with my 8mm's. When I got the unit I cleaned it well with chamois swaps and MG video cleaner(Recommended by all experts it see

You have a clogged video head. It happens. Do not use the chamois again. Instead, purchase an 8mm head cleaner and give that a try. Only use a brand name cleaner - no generics, and make sure it doesn't come from China!

Lack of tracking when playing

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Tape won't eject. C:32:11 error message appears.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Try and take the battery out then plug it in to the wall and check if it works. If this doesn’t help then try these steps--


1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.
Also check for a slim "memory" battery. This will fix your C:32:11 and C:32:10 error codes and will allow you to use your Camcorder again.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

The sound is not working when trying to record on

There are 2 heads in the recorder. One for reading (playing) and the other for writing (recording). 1st try cleaning these heads
using a Squab (Q tip) with a alcohol based cleaning solution (Radio Shack). Always rub the squab on the head in the direction the tape would follow, not perpendicular.

I need dirver Windows Vista 64 bits for Handycam TRV-740

This was taken from Sony's Website....
Driver information for Microsoft® Windows Vista® and Windows® XP
  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
  • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows Vista operating system.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.
So as you can see...the 64 bit OS is NOT supported.  The only luck you are going to have is either go to XP, Vista 32 bit...or see if there is a 3rd party driver someone made on the internet.  Try google....but I would have to say due to the complex nature of the drivers, it is highly unlikely that anyone has made a driver that is compatible.  It just has to do with how the 64 bit OS is made.  There might be a way to use 32 bit drivers, however you might run into some issues with processing and streaming.  To my knowledge of 64 bit systems, they are backwards compatible with 32 bit applications, so you can use wither 32 or 64 bit drivers....the only downside is by using 32 bit on a 64 bit machine, you are going to suffer a little bit of performance loss.  I hope this answers your questions.

Video camera displaying Error code C:31:23

I have been fighting the same problem. I just now picked up the camera and a small rubber roller fell out of the tape door area. I was not sure where it came from but looking closer there are 4 small rods sticking up on the right side inside the area where the tape is located. It looked like this was where the roller went so I placed it on the center rod and replaced the tape. This solved the problem and I am now able to view and recored as before. There most likely is a part that has either fell or broken off or is loose inside the tape area.
