Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it. Check your tapes carefully, most cause of this trouble are due to defective tapes, especially sony brand, I recommend you use TDK tapes.
never force open any unit, it will only make things worst!!! [;0)

Thanks for your time here. The problem with my Sony CCD-TRV68 is that everything seems to work as normal in the Record mode of operation: viewfinder/LCD works OK, the tape is moving/rolling, the counter is...

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Am i able to record a vcr tape on to a dvd

If the DVD drive is a recorder, then transferring VHS to DVD is possible. Otherwise, if the DVD drive is a player only, recording onto DVD is not possible.

The best way to determine if your DVD deck can record discs, is to insert a blank DVD-R into your unit and try to record/play it. If it can't, you will need a DVD recorder. These are not too expensive to buy, any brand you like, but go for quality, and proven reliability (such as SONY for example), whilst keeping price in mind.

If you absolutely have to, invest in a DVD recorder, and transfer your tapes that way. DVD recorder remotes tend to have more buttons and functions and can be slightly larger than player remotes.

Not the greatest help in the world, but at least it's free advice. Good luck.

My canon camera seems to work fine in record mode. The LCD shows the video and the timestamp, and tape is moving. Yet in playback mode no matter what Tape I use (even if I know the tape has video on it)...

The playback head is dirty. Insert a brand new tape into the drive and perform a record, through the entire tape until it reaches the end. Then play a pre-recorded tape.

This morning while trying to copy from vhs to dvd I kept getting an on screen message OTR Pause....record. What is OTR as the tape did not copy this is model DRC832ON

OTR is one-touch recording on most of my VCR/DVD burners where you set the length of time to record from the tv. In my manual it is the Express Record feature. Press the REC button several times to advance the record time by 30 minutes. In your case it might refer to On Timed Record.

Use the COPY button on the front of the unit when the tape you want to record is in the VCR and a blank DVD is in the DVD tray. If you have the A/B Edits set, only the A/B editted sections will copy. (Copy protected tapes and DVDs can't be copied.) (Or the timed transfer described below)

Copying DVDs to VCR tapes can be done in a timed record mode. You can either use Menu > Disc > Copy Disc then press OK or Menu > Timers > Set Transfer and press OK. Then press Info to name the timed event followed by Done and OK, if desired. Press OK to highlight Copy From/To and make sure to select the correct source and destination and press OK. Next set the day and time that you want the transfer to take place (a couple of steps, press OK between them and when done). Then adjust the quality if needed and press OK. Finally highlight Keep Timer and press OK again. Make sure the correct tape and DVD are in place for the timed event.

Depending on what you set the unit for, I'd look for signs of power failures (which mess up most timed record functions). Then I'd double-check the time you set it to transfer and the A/B edits function. (A/B edits lets you grab small clips from an Indexed tape. Either index the tape by playing it and pressing the Insert A/B edit button (on the VCR/DVD, possibly on the remote) or delete A/B edits.)

I hope this helps.

I cannot record, in the corner where it says record, standby, it flashes the number C:31:40 I have a new TDK Hi 8 120 and it keeps flashing. Please help, thank [email protected]

when problem occur while cam is operating, the self-diagnosis function starts working, and may display the service mode display code. in your case, C:31:40, pertains to a part of the cam tape compartment mechanism called the drum that doesn't start up. issues could prevent you from recording, playing back tapes, rewinding or fas forwarding. t/s steps are: try diff tapes esp. w/prev recordings, reset cam (press reset button while cam is on, located just below the menu button, in the panel where the lcd screen goes to), power reset (remove batt and ac adapter and leave cam w/ any power source for at least a minute). if issue persists, unit will require repair. hope this helps.tnx:)

PROTECTION flashing on lcd screen

there should be a little tab on the tape that can be moved (the one on my tape is red) if it is closed it stops the tape from being able to record anything and if it is open you should not see the protection on the screen

Lines through the tape when recording or playing back

It could need a head adjustment. Any camera store can do that for you.
