Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV240 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Flooded in Katrina

My DCR TRV240 was exposed to moisture during hurricane Katrina. I have replaced a number of parts and finally have everything working. The problem is it worksd beautifully as long as it is plugged into the AC power adapter. The new battery is charging properly but when I remove the AC adapter it shuts down. Early on it would work in the battery mode occasionally for only a few seconds and then shut down. Now it doesn't even do that. To date I have replaced the Battery(NP-FM30), Control switch block (SS-1380, Flexible board (FP-410, battery terminal board, and the Control Switch block (CF-2500). Can you direct me to what part may be the problem? I could replace the VC-276 board for $700 but I could buy a new camera for that. Thank you for any help with this that you can provide.

My washer is one that was used in Fema trailers during Hurricane Katrina. Water is leaking badly out of it. I need to replace the main seal, but I cannot figure out how to get the agitator off. Can you...

the agitator is a simple thing to remove although the threads rust and might need a little help there should be what looks like an finger grip at the top of it and it should turn anticlockwise to undo as i say it might need a little help.adrian,,,

This hose fell off during transport and i can't figure out what it connects to except on one end. i lost my manual during hurrican katrina and need help, i am female so explain it to me so i can...

Without knowing what the one end connects to, it is hard to tell.

If the engine runs without this hose, it is probably a vent/overflow for the battery..

One end should connect to the battery and the other end should just hang bellow the mower.

- this prevents battery acid from corroding your mower.

one of your reel tables is not turning or you have an faulty capstanmotor.
Or.. the servochip inside need to be resoldered. You can check this put a cassette in the loader and while you push the playbutton give it a good bump on f.e. the table, when it's working you have a faulty on the mainboard
