Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR416 Camcorder

1 Answer

Cant record I have a really really really old Sony video Hi8 Handycam and when I put a tape in thats already been recorded, it won't play and when i switch to CAMERA mode it turns off and i have to unplug and replug it in to get anything to work. Also on the screen in CAMERA mode a symbol with a hand ( looks like this ((handprint)) ) on it shows up. Is this fixable or should we buy a new camera...the camera is about 15 years old so i don't think they make this brand anymore. Please help us.

Hello, your camcorder is from 1998 or 1999. Yes it is fixable. Please ask for the price estimate from the technician with best references. If you need more info please advice.

The Sony DCR-TRV130 is a D8 digital camcorder which is not compatible with Hi8 camcorders.
You need to have an Hi8 camcorder or DCR-TRV103 or similar camcorders that backward compatible with Hi8 camcorders.

Can I use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes in my DCR_TRV250E?If so would I be able to playback recorded tapes on the UK televisions?.

DCR-TRV250E is a PAL version camera of the Digital8 format.
Yes you can use Hi8/Digital8 NTSC tapes. The camera will record a PAL digital picture on the tapes which means that you can play back the tapes in PAL and therefore you will be able to playback recorded tapes on UK televisions because they are also of the PAL format.

a problem with an electro mechanical mode-select switch there could be a timing problem arised by mechanical problems on contacts inside (an old video recorder problem between the seventies and nineties ) all equipments where tapes or cassettes are used.
A service manual for timing should be neccesary

Problems with playing cassettes recorded on a hi8 camera

DCR TRV140E is a Digital8 camera
CCD TRV87E is a Hi8 camera,
(Hi8 is an analog format)
the tapes are the same size, wont help, the recording systems are not compatible
send them to a lab service ?maybe if there are only a few
or ebay a Hi8 camera and transcode them yourself

its not a solution, at least it clarifies the problem

Hi8 playback problem

your guides have come loose , probably - the digital sound will be next to go because the bottom edge of your tapes are being folded - open the cassette tape lid by pressing the small pin near one hinge and gently lifting the door - if there are any creases ? get the guides aligned ! to protect your library ; ( if there are no creases , try a sony d8 cleaning tape - once ! before getting a repair quote ) ;

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.
