Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV310 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Camera control buttons do not work, stop, play etc

The volume control, effects buttons etc do not work either. I bought the camcorder in 2000 & it is in excellent condition. It was working fine while playing back a tape I had recorded then none of the camera buttons would work. The camera works with the remote control as far as play, stop etc goes.The zoom & viewfinder buttons do not work as well. I have cleaned it according to Sony's suggestions & it still has no buttons that will work. I have contacted Sony & all they could offer was how to reset it by removing the battery.

    I have the same issue. I inserted a tape for playback and pressed rewind. A few seconds later, rewinding stopped and all control buttons went off (not lit anymore). Zoom button does not work either. No error code on LCD panel. I can activate play rewind etc.. via remote control and camcoder responds fine. But even with remote control, although playback is contnuing, can't see the picture. I can adjust volume but there's a hiss noise. In camera record mode, even without adjusting the zoom button, it automatically zoom in so much and can see only pixels as it even exceeds the optical zoom and go on to the max. digital zoom.... sob..sob.. plz help..I have already tried resetting by removing the battery both power & built-in lithium. Also tried re-iserting the cassette multiple times. please ...anyone .. please shed some light... thanks!!

Your flexible control panel cable may have torn ( from loading and unloading ) - if there are leds ? in yours , the replacement part often does not have them ( many users miss them ) ; get an estimate , before committing to repairs on a 7 year old camera ( starts at $ 50 plus parts and shipping , here in puerto rico ) ;

Hi, my remote control is working fine but the TV doesn't respond to it. Only manually the channels and volume can be changed...is this a settings problem?


It's a common problem with this model. You must change the IR board. This is very easy to do. Remove the back panel of the tv and unscrew/unplug the original board located where the power button, volume/channel, etc is and plug the new one. I bought my IR at Ebay, but sadly have to say that it was not working. Watch out these bargains, :-(

Bose Sound Dock remote control - only volume works


My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.
If you've found a solution, please post it here.

I had the same problem with sony remot control RM-ED002, take remot control apart and clean inside with damp cloth and dry with kitchen towel, thats it now use it! ;-)
When i opened mine it was some kind of moisture under volume and channel buttons, cleaning and drying it helped.

JBL Creature Speakers have very low volume


I had the same problem. Then I read about the volume controls on the right speaker. They are silver buttons for me on the front bottom left and right of the speaker. Now they play really loud!

Volume will not adjust on Treo 755p


This may resolve the problem. My Treo 755 stopped hotsync some time ago and then I noticed that the volume control side buttons had no effect. On suggestion from this site, I removed the battery for several minutes and then reinstalled it and the phone has returned to normal activity, hotsync-ing the first time and volume buttons working fine.

WS-55511 55in volume turns up by itself & can't switch devices


The remote is not the problem. The switch for volume up on the control panel has become leaky. Very common problem for this generation Mitsubishi. If you don't mind not having the control panel working you can disconnect it and the set will work just fine with the remote. To disconnect the control panel pull the speaker grill, it just snaps off, and remove the front access panel. Once that is done you'll see a cable going to the switches just disconnect it.

Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC - adjustment buttons unresponsive, volume drop, etc.


plug your cable connection to a vcr "in" then run a seperate cable cord from the vcr "out" to your television (which should be on channel 3 or 4) depending on your vcr setting and use the vcr to control the channel so when your westinghouse freezes and becomes unresponsive you could still change the channel and so on through your vcr and tv acts like a monitor works for me. N.B be sure to set the volume and so on before it freezes which could be like a 1min window from turning your tv on
