Everything else is working fine even the vcr funtion of the camera. It's when I go to recording function that I don't see any picture. It records sound but no picture.... I want to make sure it's beyond my capacity to fix it before I bring it to the shop and spend money for it.

Re: no picture, record sounds
I know that this may sound trivial or obvious, but I believe you should never overlook the easy solutions first. Is the lense cap off or open during record? Certainly the problem you describe would be exactly what you get with a lense cap in place. I have seen units which have a slide switch to open the lense cover which did not work and the customer thought it was open when it wasn't. If that is not the case the only other problem which would cause this would be a defective CCD block (imager) or a bad connection from the CCD block such as a ribbon cable loose or out of a connector. In either case this would not be something that you could fix and you would need to seek the help of a repair shop. Two websites which offer free estimates are http://www.videotech.com or http://www.camcorderrepair.com Good luck.

just bought a Topfield trf-2460 PVR and I have got everything working except the remote control (that came with pvr) sound funtion. I can record and playback with the audio working fine but even after setting the TF remote control to work on the TV funtion, it just doesn't like it, except for the mute button, that and the off function. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Joe
I HAD THIS PROBLEM ERROR CODE C31 : 22 WOULD COME UP AND TRV 118 CAM WOULD NOT WORK. I TRIED EVERYTHING TILL ONE DAY I BANGED IT ON A CARPETED FLOOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CAMCORDER 5 TIMES QUITE HARD. THEN THE CAM WORKED JUST FINE! MY CAM HADN'T WORKED FOR OVER 7 MONTHS. NOW I HAVE IT BACK. HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE.
make sure camera has this function first,Easy way to check is to see if top of camera has a record botton where play,ff,rew,stop are..Put camera in VTR mode then hok up cable to tv ..if no signal is comming thru,, check on camera menu for this function..LINE IN
