Sony hi8 video cam trying to record onto cd's through Sony dvd pl

Yellow connection for camcorder is your video output, the other one is for audio. If your DVD recorder does not have composite video inputs you will have to get an adapter to attach to your yellow wire and the other end of adapter will go to your recorder. OK?

Hi. My camcorder wont play any tape for more

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired 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.

If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com .

Playback

if the camera is going on in the play mode and you are getting a blue screen with play indicator it is mostly due to dirty head. what have you used for cleaning the head. take the help of repairer for cleaning as he will do so after opening the cover. if that doesent solves the problem then get the video head checked for any damages such as broken tips.

Sony DCR-VX1000 won't leave standby mode

Hi, Please double check that your camera has well-charged power source and has enough memory or capacity to record new data. Since the camera was sold starting around 1995, this would be a tape. If there is no more tape to record, then you would run into the issue that you've mentioned above. But there are other possibilities as well. Thank you.

Your Sony is similar to this one. This switch has 3 positions. To playback and use buttons for cassette, turn the dial to VCR or it might be called VTR. image-e4f4ozhsscua0uhqzaix5g5v-d-0.jpg

Sony Handicam CD-TRV128 wont accept tape

If you mean Sony CCD-TRV128 they have been obsolete for a good length of time now. The main issue with these, back 20 years ago, was the door catch. It gets bent from misalignment or forcing the door closed. Sometimes it can be fixed but often as it is so old, spares are no longer available.
