Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder

1 Answer

We have just tried to start up our old Sony CCD-TRV87 and although it will play back fine, in Record mode it only shows a black screen - kind of like mostly black snow. It will record and play back this "snow". Any ideas?

Although the battery shows it takes a charge and the camera will run in playbackmode (VTR) I found if I remove the battery and run on AC the camera turns on and now I can record with it. The battery must be the problem.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Hi-8...


I am having the same problem. When I hit Rewind or Fast Foward, i can see the image moving clearly.
When I hit play though, I just get a BLUE screen with the Play arrow displayed. So it's playing, I just got a blue screen. And last night, I got the blue screen but I could hear the audio. 
Then I put a head cleaning tape in the camera, and I did get the picture back on for a little bit.
Skip to this morning, and we are back to the Blue screen again. Only this time, I am getting no audio. And I the head cleaning tape back in but it's not helping anymore.

Sony TRV-19 Camcorder - Black screen in camera mode


Fixed it, at least temporarily I had the side off my trv250 examining it, especially the CCD connection. I had read the post about soldering a capacitor to pins 1 and 3 (from the left) on the bottom row. I didn't have the specific capacitor on hand, but I started touching some of the small ones I did have to those pins. I found that after I touched a 100uF, 10V cap to pins 1 and 3 the picture suddenly came back to life and stayed that way after removing the cap. I have no idea how long this will last, and I've set up the cam on a tripod in the livingroom with the LCD display facing me so I can monitor it. If you, like me, figure you have nothing else to lose, you might want to give this a try. Note: my camera was suffering from the green smeary horizontal lines problem, and wasn't completely black. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.
