Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV730 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Playback mode after 5 years of use looks like the playback mode is dead. Too bad since I have around 25 video tapes would like to convert to DVD. Is there any possible way to repair that ? The recording still works just the playback as soon as I push the play botton stops and tries to restart.I cleaned up using the cleaning tbut I was able to watch only 15 minutes of video and then its just stopped. Any help? Thanks, Daiva

    I have a similar issue with playback on my TRV725E, where either it doesn't playback at all or when it does after a head clean there is one or two solid grey blocks on the screen. I also have many cherished memories that I would like to keep so any advice would be much appreciated.
