I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.

    I have a similar problem but when the cassette holder closes it doesn't go back inside the camera. It happened when I dropped the camcorder and I switched the rotating switch to Auto. Is there any way to fix this?

There is a flex ribbion cable attached to the main assambly and the cassette holder which moves upwards during ejection. this cable gets damaged during normal use. Get replaced it from a camera repairer.

Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the issue is with the dirt in the Video Head of the Camcorder. You can try using new Hi8 tapes for recording the videos to check if they are playing back normally. If the audio is working normally in the Camcorder, then the issue is with the dirt on the video head. If the issue persists with all the tapes, then the video head can be cleaned using a dry Video Head Cleaner Cassette. You can purchase the cassette from the Sony Authorized dealers or from the local electronics store. Please make sure that the cleaning cassette is compatible with the Camcorder.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Check the tape carefuly. on the flat side of the cassette that faces upwards when you insert the cassette in the camera there is a 'record protect' switch which is coloured red. if it has completely covered the hole then it is in the 'save position' .in that case you wont be able to record.to record , flip the switch outwards with your finger nail. it should now expose the small hole. you are now set to record. please make sure that you set the mode select switch on the camera to 'camera' position.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

Recording stopped working


Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman
