Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV43 Camcorder
Not sure whether it is the playback or the recording. It is a Sony Handycam TRV43 Hi8 Camcorder. A bad tape was stuck in it. I had to get the tape out so I took it apart and extracted the tape. I lost several screws but I was able to get it working for the event. Later the same bad tape was put back into the camera (don't ask). This time after extracting the tape the image was jittery. I have secured replacement screws, but it doesn't seem to be fixing the problem. Thoughts?
How many times did you clean the head? and what with? often you can irrepairably damage the head on these machines by overcleaning. How much difference did the head cleaning make? What was "bad" about the bad tape? was it old/got wet/left in sun/etc....? Are you sure none of the missing screws are still in the machine? Are you getting the same results if you play back using a different camera/player or have you only tried your camera? Are there any unusual noises when the camera is recording or playing back? - listen really really carefully, in case there is a motor or gearing problem. Waiting for your info :)
