Parallel gray lines on display

This is usually caused by an oxidized 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.

How can i change the

My research shows that model is only for sale only in Asia, I looked into some similar USA released models and they did NOT have multiple language support so I am thinking that the DCR-TRV9 is only in Japanese.

Just out of curiosity are the markings on the camera body in English or in Japanese?

Screen is not working

It is a posible issue with the hardware the LCD or the power connector of LCD to the body. Another thing there might be a short circuit inside.

You can perform this T/S:
1. remove all accesories connected including battery.
2. press the power button or switch to on for 1 minute to release all the electrical current inside.
3. turn on the camera check if it will work.

If the problem persist then it is a hardware issue and LCD needs to be replaced.

Sony DCR-DVD200 camcorder not turning on after trying to fix it.

The best thing you can do now is to take it to a specialist and get them to do the repairs. Camcorders have a lot of electronics in them and can be easily damaged if your a not an experienced repairer. You might also have to consider that this camcorder might not be repairable.

Handycam CCD-TRV70 Hi8 camcorder. Why is it suddenly playing all tapes fuzzy, with no audio?

The record / playback heads probably need cleaning, using a compatible cleaning tape. Failing that, it is either damaged or broken.

Blue screen on TRV260 playback

TRV260 nail-polish head attack: eek. Acetone is a powerful solvent capable of dissolving plastic parts, plastic gears, housing and insulation. Besides that, it leaves a residue of microscopic crystals which have probably contaminated the highly-polished metal head drum. Not to mention gumming up the bushes and bearings. With your next camera, rather use a head-cleaner DV-tape.
