This problem can be due loose RIBBON CABLE inside or probably bad CCD chip.

IMac OSX 10.4.1 doesnt recognize SONY handycam format

you would need to update by doing a software update ( apple at the top left --> software update ) update everything until you are at 10.4.11 and also update any other software it prompts you to - if you have an older version of quicktime with a serial key make sure you know what the serial key is as the later versions of quicktime will over write the older ones.

you can get perian which should help you with regards to video codecs :

Perian website

You can also download and install the divx and xvid codecs from these sites

divx here

xvid here

Also try VLC :

website here

If none of the above works then what file formats are the video footage clips and did you get any software with your cam to work on the mac if not then you should be able to use iMovie and or iDVD to help you with the video side of it.

Loss my manual book

I have tried to copy movies to the computer but when I try to play them on the computer, there is no sound I transferred the videos I recorded onto my computer but no sound when playing them on the PC. The file is also a video clip file not an audio/video file unlike other files that I transferred from my other camcorder

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.

Memory stick could be fubar. I have a bad sd card that I can record to and will work. Then a few days later the data is corrupted, and I have to reinstall it / same pattern. Try another stick to verify that it is the stick and not the camera electronics.
