Question about RCA PRO854 8mm Analog Camcorder

Open Question

Video's won't play sound or sound comes and goes during play back

I have a number of old 8mm videos from when my kids were young and I'm trying to transfer them to my PC. On playback the sound either does not play or it comes and goes. If I push on the face plate it seems like it works slightly better. It seems like there must be something that is not adjusted quite right so the pickup is not getting the sound. I also get a blurry area at the bottom of the picture.

SOURCE: When attempting to transfer to CD for long term

8mm head cleaning tape should be available at most electronic stores.
If the tape does not help after two or three attempts you are best to take it to a techincian.

BTW: The tape is one of the best backup mediums. Transferring to DVD is a great option for viewing only.

Playback 8mm camcorder tape fuzzy


8 mm and the newer super 8 mm video tapes are different. You can't use super 8 mm in old player. And old tapes won't play well in new super 8 mm players. Like Sony!

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.

Toshiba D-VR610KU recorded disc won't play in my Daewoo DVD5800


What are the compatible types of DVD's that the Daewoo DVD5800 player is supposed to play? Is DVD-R among the compatible types? Try playing the new recordings on a computer that has a DVD drive, or a friend's computer.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!
