Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
Everything has been working fine and just now as I am reviewing tapes, the play, Rew, FF, and stop buttons will not work.

the head may be dirty, clean it by using a cleaning cassete, maybe its playing but can not produce a clear picture, not able to produce a clear picture would automatically change the display to blue.

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 ) ;

the flexwire is the problem of your camera and if all wiring be cut the next problem is the lcd monitor would not turn on...go to a service center for replacing or repairing the flexwire...

A couple of possibilities: the bad electronics unit might have power supply problems, optical sensor problems, or other problems with the electronics. If you have some tech savvy and a voltmeter, you could check the power supply voltages. This circuit is likely in the close vicinity of the fuse. On the output side you should see a +5 volt, +12 to 15 volt, and perhaps a -35 volt (approx). The +5 supplies the logic circuit, +12 the motors. If these voltages are missing, or way out of tolerance, you will have a dead unit. A frequent cause of problems in the supply is bad electrolytic capacitors, especially in the older units (Panasonic manufactured rigs, late '80s/early '90s). Possible values on these capacitors: 2200MFD/10V 1000MFD/16V and several others. Replacements can be supplied by MCM electronics, Mouser electronics. I use the Panansonic FC series from Digi-Key Electronics. Sensor problems: Many VCRs have the sensor opticals mounted on the main circuit board, and locate themselves in particular spots in the mechanical section. One or more sensors detect tape loaded, one each for the supply & takeup spindles. If any of these sensors (especially the supply/takeup sensors) are non-working, the logic circuit will detect an error condition, and shut down the unit or at least put it into a stop mode.
