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

    Hi,

    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.

I had a Sony HD mini dv camcorder back in 2007-08. I no longer have it so I purchased a canon on eBay. When I try and play the tapes I get incorrect tape specifications playback restricted. Now what

Nothing wrong with the Canon, but you cannot expect one piece of equipment to play tapes recorded a dozen years ago on equipment of a different make.

Your best bet will be to find someone to transfer the tapes to DVD for you.

I have a really old Canovision8, E40, 8mm camcorder that doesn't work anymore. What's the best solution to convert the tapes to DVD or to the computer?

Hi,
You need Hi-8 camcorder/ Hi-8 player to playback your old Video-8 tapes, hook that camcorder/ player with DVD Recorder, play video-8 tapes and burn DVDs directly.

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.

8mm Samsung camcorder: choppy playback

This seems like a tape playback problem. Can you look at the output of the tape in the camera directly into a monitor? And checking the tapes on another machine would also be good.

The fast movement breakup can be something in the playback circuitry of the camera. It may not show up in the viewfinder. Also yo umay try repacking the tape. Fast forward it to the end and rewind it all the way.

VHS tapes are black and white

The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.
