LeahFowlkes: I have one similar. Tried playing tapes today for the first time in
years--- no luck. Won't play back. Very disappointed.
1stDivision: I want these....If you would like to see them to me for 15 - 20 bucks...I
can still use these even though they don't record...All I need is the stand
MSG me if you're serious.. "Why let it go to waste...?"
0304isaac0304: just smack the bottom
VICNASTY1989: I did that so much it stopped working after awhile- LOL! -Thanks for
VICNASTY1989: You cannot do direct uploads with this camera, although you can if you run
the A/V output wire through an analog signal converter to your computer-
hope that helps. -Thanks for watching!
Sherie Waif: just bought one 110$ and have no cassette to test it
martin malacara: I have the same camera and I use it as a cctv, and is on working 24 hours
at day for one year already..and dont have any problems.. it's a excellent
VICNASTY1989: @SuperMe4lyfe Sorry, just saw this message its a Sony DSC-W350 (14.1mp
Cybershot 720p video) -Thanks for watching!
SuperMe4lyfe: what camcorder did you use to record this video
DarkzSpawnz: When i record video , its not save .. and i cant watch my record :(
Joel Baltazar: @VICNASTY1989 thats old i hAVE ONE CURRENTLY USING IT TO TRANSFER TO MY PC
BY RECORDING. PLANNING TO REPLACE IT
VICNASTY1989: How old of a camera did you record yours on....it might be struggling to
lock tracking on your tapes....-Thanks for watching!
VICNASTY1989: @IncredableDrE Nice, A classic!
TheBlowtorchabortion: man i have the same cam but no charger will you sell your changer ?
VICNASTY1989: I guess the lens and video sensor technology has improved so much that
there is no longer a need for the movie light. Although, I agree- that
would be a nice feature to bring back!- Thanks for watching!
jay11j: I think this is the same thing as my aunt has, and she had issue too like
you and gave up on it.
VICNASTY1989: @vwestlife Yeah I have been looking for one for awhile so I can transfer
some of my Hi8 tapes over to DVD but I can't find one working that is
affordable, I wish they would fix it reasonably- this camera had a great
picture and really nice features- its a real shame they had this common
defect. Thanks for watching!
Makeupbyivana: how can i transfor pictures nd stuff from my camera to computer.? :) PLEASE
69furball69: Convert it to use nightshot with daylight settings and use it for a
nightvision security camera - connected to pc, of course. You'll need an IR
pass filter and maybe a ND filter. Check out my x-ray vision video made
with a converted sony handycam trv93.
jfs1988: Thats happening to mine too. I bougth a cleaning tape from Best Buy & that
didnt work. This analog camcorder has better quality than most new digital
Elisabet montero: si
Levi castillo: Can you upload videos on to the computer with this camera?
boo103160: I have the CCD TR-81 and would love to get in working again. Thanks for the
inspiration. My problem is that the monitor shows only a white streak of
light down the center. Any ideas?
Sherie Waif: How do I upload from one of the same camera, onto laptop? The man at store
said Dazzel port wouldn't work because it is analog. Do I need a driver
installed is, there any way to use ASB or must I buy an analog converter?
VICNASTY1989: @RetroPCDOS Do you have any remedies or quick fixes? Because I have stacks
of Hi8 Tapes that I cannot play right now.
VICNASTY1989: That's pretty amazing its been running for a full year! Yeah, I also really
liked this camera- it is quite feature packed! -Thanks for watching!
databits .: 22k views of a Handycam!?? I need to make more Handycam videos!! :)
Andrey Molina: I have it old :( I want My born see video but it not work :'(
PandaSwagg3000: SOME ONE ANWSER MY QUESTION CAN U UPLAOD YOUTUBE VIDEOS WITH THIS AND IF U
CAN HOW DO U DO IT WITH THIS CAMERA!!!
Comnoiu Adrian: How to upload a videos files from a camera tape to a computer or
laptop.Have this cameras USB cables for transfer?
RetroPCDOS: @VICNASTY1989 Your issue may be the same as mine, as just pickup a
CCD-TRV138 that has that same problem. Going to do a video when I fix the
problem, but it the flex cable towards the top, that goes to the transport
to the mainboard. To see if your having that problem tap on the top of the
camcorder by the cassette compartment, it sure work for a few seconds, if
it does you have to take the whole camcorder apart reinsert one flexible
ribbon cable that located towards the top part..
hellofrankenbery: JUST SO YOU KNOW.... I had an issue with my old VideoHi8 TRV308... I got an
error code C:31:23 and after a few googles, I found out that if you
literally HIT the camera, REALLY HARD. It can fix the problem. Mine is now
working fine. I was really nervous hurting my old camera, but i figured
there was nothing to lose!
vwestlife: These Hi8 Handycams are still worth pretty good money on eBay, even when
lennartkns: led is great feature. Why do not put this newer handycameras?
Poncho Yates: I have the same problem with my 138 when I insert the tape I get on the
screen to reinstall the tape. What did you do to fix your problem and
please let me know. Thank you.
charlotte solis: I bought a handyman camcorder and at a pawn shop but i cant seem to see my
hi8 video cassettes it came with one insde and i can see that video butt
can seem to see mines???? may you know something that may help me .
VICNASTY1989: @jay11j Its a real shame to because its a great camera, and you cannot
playback your old tapes.
Cory Hartin: Yes, video capture. I just got, or found, a trv-260. Nice camera actually,
not HD, but nightshot plus 80 bucks. 20x optical. 990x optical would be
sweet. I bought a cleaner and never leave tapes in it for others who get a
IncredableDrE: @VICNASTY1989 Wow 2005 mine is from the early 90s
VICNASTY1989: Thanks, I'll have to check that out!
bakonfreek: I like my 2003 MiniDV camera better because it's smaller and has stereo
sound, but it was $1000 plus in 2003 :/
VICNASTY1989: @IncredableDrE If I'm not mistaken Kodak pioneered this technology in 1985.
dubified89: They made hi8 cameras in 2005?
VICNASTY1989: Sounds like the flexible cable running through the swivel joint has a bad
connection, or the LCD has been cracked or damaged. -Thanks for watching!
movies and more: so whats the problem with it
VICNASTY1989: @MultiAdy22 This camera would need a digital video converter as it just has
analog (RCA -yellow/ white) connectors. The model above this had the DV
output (although I am unsure of its actual camera model number) -Thanks for
bakonfreek: this error is so easy to fix. you just have to pull out a rolling pin and
put in a new locking pin, then put it back on the spindle, and it will work
fine. look it up
DiFaSaProductions: these cameras are still very popular
RetroPCDOS: I don't know why Sony charges $800 bucks, it's just the mode gear,
sometimes pinch roller, but very easy to fix, I fix over a few of thoses,
dont even need any parts. but seeing the error code, it's more likely the
pinch roller worked it way loose.
VICNASTY1989: You could get a video converter which plugs into the computer to run the
camera through, or transfer the tapes to DVD and upload them using a
program like Windows Movie maker, etc. -Thanks for watching!
