Hi, I'm Sony tech and can help you to solve problem of CCD-TR818 camcorder. Tap bottom of camcorder few times with your palm gently, now check playback of tape. If problem still not solved, let me know what error code flashing on top right of view finder screen. Thanks.
My advice is that you should by a cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head. good luck! Luwangula
I am having the same problem. When I hit Rewind or Fast Foward, i can see the image moving clearly.
When I hit play though, I just get a BLUE screen with the Play arrow displayed. So it's playing, I just got a blue screen. And last night, I got the blue screen but I could hear the audio.
Then I put a head cleaning tape in the camera, and I did get the picture back on for a little bit.
Skip to this morning, and we are back to the Blue screen again. Only this time, I am getting no audio. And I the head cleaning tape back in but it's not helping anymore.
Tracking is very sensitive on hi-8 tapes in LP mode. This recorder will record and playback in LP mode. It is however recommended that if you record in LP mode that you use the same camera to play it back, that it was recorded with, or you might have problems.
Also from what I can find online, the TR427 is just an video8 camera not a Hi-8 so if you are trying to play Hi-8 tapes on it, it won't play right.
Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for
five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback
then eject again five times, these will serve as your
video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning
cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera.
Most camera has built in video head cleaner
installed inside and activates only when you insert,
initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is
still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
