Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
Hello. I have a Sony TrV87 camcorder. When in VTR mode, the play, fast forward, rewind, stop, and pause buttons are non responsive, the tape heads do not move at all( you can hear a sound as if they are moving, but they are not), and the playback screen is blue. When in Power mode, I can clearly see whatever it is I am filming, and it says it is recording, yet again, the tape is not moving at all. What is wrong? Any suggestions?
SOURCE: Will not playback tapes
a sony cleaning cassette may clear the gunk from your friend ' s possibly ? bad tapes ( do not rewind it - or the gunk will be redeposited ) ; if still no video , get an estimate to have your heads and guides cleaned . . . professionally ;

This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

when I plug in the RPU DC cord from my camera to the input on my tv I get nothing. Is my input jack bad or what. Also, if I tried the s video jack from the camera to the tv, would that work??? I don't know what the AV out jack is for I don't have a cord for that
