Sony DCRA-C162 Camcorder. I need a replacement battery for the DCRA-C162. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Question edited for clarity, add full 'make model (what it is)'. Question moved from Cars and Trucks category. Searching for your manual keeps bringing up this manual https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/2698/26988801M.pdf Looking at that manual Page 16, it states the battery pack as 'NP-FP50', and that turns up batteries for $15. https://www.google.com/search?q=NP-FP50 ..

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV68 Flashing No Tape and Eject Symbol

If it were worth repairing, as a Sony agent, I would replace all of the capacitors and clean up the board then reset the mechanism and test. Probably too old being 2001 vintage.

SONY mini HandyCam model V569. HOW DO YOU TURN ON A SONY V569?

Question edited to add full model designation. Question moved from Sony Computers. This doesn't seem to be a very well known model. It is not even listed on their website. https://www.sony.ca/en/electronics/support/cameras-camcorders/manuals/results?query=V569# There are normally two batteries, a small one that just saves memory and runs the operating system, and a larger battery that actually powers the camera. Try contacting Sony direct There is a bit of help here, but not enough. https://www.google.com/search?q=SONY+V569 ..

Eject is flashing with fast beeps. Won't eject tape or open compartment.

sad to say that the problem of your camera is the timing gear is already damage....it need to disassembly the camera to fix the timing gear....go to the qualified service center for fixing or replacing the timing gear..

If u fig.out how to get it off lmk. I've tried many things and no luck.

Deleted videos from harddrive and

Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to get the deleted files that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available. If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be Data Recovery for Mac Mac Data Recovery Photo Recovery and Free Registry Cleaner from uFlysoft

Sony Video 8 TRV30E Handycam keeps ejecting tapes

The real reason this is happening is the spinning heads can not equalise, either with a preset speed or match the speed of the recorded media and so it ejects the tape as being incompatible.
DO NOT SMACK IT.
As I have done this in frustration and to just get the camera working, the mechanism inside these Sony cameras is so delicate and on such a soft-metal base plate, that the plate bends and is likely to be the cause of the problem in the first place (a small knock in the bag etc - you know where it says on the tape cover to 'press here' and in the instructions it says "do not press elsewhere on the cover" thats why, it's delicate).
Before you damage that camera and loose the ability to adjust/correct the speed of the heads all together, I would strongly suggest you take it in for repairs to a very reputable technician.
NOTE:: If your speed is wrong now and it is fixed, all that you have taped on the wrong speed may not be playable when you get it back - backup/copy all your compact (8mm) tapes to your computer/DVD/VHS anything.
You rated one off-the-cuff response - I hope you find it good to rate mine and I'd really like to here how you went. Please post a comment here so we know you're good.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

New DCR-TRV260 won't play my old tapes

I have the same problem. I just bought a sony handyman and tried to play my old tapes and nothing, not even sound. But I just recorded something using an old tape and it records and I can play that back. I'm thinking maybe over time, somehow all the data on there got erased. Which is really a bummer.

Date/Time resets every time i turn on camera.

Hi, yes, there is a small coin memory battery, usually something like a CR3032 lithium battery. Turn off the camera and insert a new 'coin' battery (correct side up). Close battery cover, turn on camera and go to menu and set time and date. It should remember the time and date for a year or two, provided you put a regular battery on the camera on a regular basis. Also note, some older Sony cameras allow you to set it so that it shows only the date for the 1st 5 seconds when you first turn on the camera that day, then shuts it off unless you want it to superimpose the time and date on the video. Good luck, and let me know if this solves your problem. John

Sony DCR-DVD200 camcorder not turning on after trying to fix it.

The best thing you can do now is to take it to a specialist and get them to do the repairs. Camcorders have a lot of electronics in them and can be easily damaged if your a not an experienced repairer. You might also have to consider that this camcorder might not be repairable.
