Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV900E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

No sound on new recordings

When I make a new recording I do not get any sounds.If one listens very carefully there is a minute sound in the background.Playback of older tapes are OK.If I make a follow-on recording on one of these tapes it records with no sound. Selecting Stereo 1 or 2. Audio SP1 or SP2 or maximum Manual Mike recording level all have no effect. Picture quality is great.

    Have just discovered that when I use an external mic in both auto and manual modes sound recordings are then OK when playing back the new recording.

    I have lost sound recording on all new recordings too. Using internal mike as I don't have an external one.

    Any suggestions for finding where the fault might lie, before I spend £176 with Sony Repair Centre to find out?!!!
