Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV350 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Digital Video Output

I have had and used this camera for almost 4 yrs., though not heavily. It has been used mostly for pass-through of analog to DV for DVD archiving. I recently captured an hour of recorded video with no problems. The next night, I tried another hour of recorded video and while the audio is OK, the video during capture is dark, almost black. Playback of captured video has exactly the same appearance as during capturing. I use the i.Link but the same happens when using the USB streaming. Analog output to a TV is fine. I have tried another i.Link with the same results. Sony wants only $211.00 flat rate service. Thanks, Cyco

Repairs up to 50 % of replacement cost are reasonable , if warranty is same as new ( if warranty can be extended - resale improves ) ;

Does my Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder have a VCR mode and how do I access it? I am trying to copy a VHS tape to mini DV and I cannot get my camera to do it.

The Panasonic PV-GS35 will let you record digital media to the mini DV cassette if the other video source has a DV input/output connection. Then you use the 4-pin to 4-pin Firewire DV cable, PV-DDC9 . This cable is available from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/LETO-FireWire-Panasonic-Camcorder-PV-DDC9/dp/B00MLQVMSK , and other vendors. The digital camera doesn't have the S-video input needed to record from most other sources.

For information on the digital dubbing feature, see the manual starting on page 42. Panasonic has the manual on the product support page: https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/PV-GS35.html . The current link to the manual is ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camcorder/om/pv-gs19_en_om.pdf . See page 13 of the manual for the location of the DV port.

I hope this helps.

I do not have the accessory to transfer mideo to my computer; how do I get the necessary cable

Since this camera has only analog composite video output, you could try with a stardard video and audio cable ( one 3.5 mm plug at one end and 3 yellow, red and white colored RCA plugs at the other end). To transfer videos from your camera to PC you'll need an analog video and audio capture card, it can be internal (PCI type) or external (USB type), for an easier installation the USB type is recommended since it's not necessary to open you desktop. These cards commonly have a bonus software to let you rip the videos (convert from analog to digital format).

I have panasoni nv gs22 mini dv digital camera, I could connect to my laptop and copy the vedio

You can use an USB analog to digital converter for the analog outputs or the firewire/DV/iLink connection for the digital output, with the capturing software you can then have your videos on files or disks.

Where is the dv terminal on a insigia model d400 pc

The spec sheet for this computer is located at >>

http://insigniaproducts.com/products/computers/D400.html

Assuming that by "dv terminal" you are refering to a digital video output jack, your computer ( according to spec. ) was manufactured with analog video support only. The good news is that it will support a digital pci video card. Be careful though, video cards can be expensive, depending on capability.

Windows vista can't recognize my sony dv camera

If it is a Digital Video camera such as a Sony Digital 8, then it will not work with Vista. The output signal is analog even though the camera is digital. If it is a MiniDV it should work. You may have to connect it through Firewire, Component, or RCA inputs for it to work.

Convert and/or record any analog PAL video source to digital video via the analog inputs. Analog PAL video can also be passed through the Digital Handycam® camcorder directly into a PC via the i.LINK® interface in real-time for easy PC editing of your analog footage

How to use the MV6401 as an AD converter

There are more direct way of transferring VHS to digital format (MPG, AVI, etc. There are now cheap video capture devices like TV tuner, or a video capture card tha connects to USB 2.0 port. However if you still want to use this camera, this ?s what you need to do. 1. Connect the camera to the PC. Most MiniDV cams have an iterface called i-link, firewire or IEEE-1394. If your computer has no shuch interface, you have to install. 2. Record the analog video to the miniDV tape. 3.CApture the recorded tape to the PC. You need to video capture software to do this. You may need to convert the format to the format that you prefer. 4. Burn the vdeo to DVD, you will need a burner and video autthoring softare such as nero.

Can't use my Sony TRV22 miniDV camcorder to pass through and record Hi8 analog signal to my PC

Just below, they noted you don't put a tape in the TRV... Otherwise it outsmarts you.
