Question about RCA Video Cameras
I have tried changing out tapes, changing from power cord to battery, turning on and off
SOURCE: Camera will not turn on
Remove the battery for about 30 minutes. This will reset the unit and if it is a software issue it should be OK. You can also try it on the AC adapter in case the battery connector is defective. If reset allows it to work on AC but not battery you have a problem with the DC input connector. If you are good with your hands, have jewelers screwdrivers, magnifying glasses, a steady hand and lots of patience as well as good soldering skills you can remove the cases and repair the input connector. If you are not confident about doing this you will need to seek the help of a reputable repair shop. Hopefully, removing the battery and resetting the unit will solve your problem. Good luck.

look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device. if no-go, then the take-up reel needs attention...needs possibly a new or well-cleaned-with-alcohol-swab rubber belt

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 ;

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.
Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.
If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
