sony video camera connection problem

Question: sony video camera connection problem

hi,
When I connect my sony DCR-TRV950 using a firewire to my computer, it doesnt get recognized. The camera says DV IN on the bottom right of the lcd screen when i connect it so im fairly sure its not the camera. I tried many variations of connecting, then turning on, different modes, etc. i tried changing the firewire port on my computer to another pci slot but it stayed the same. the computer does recognize my port and all the drivers are installed. I tried many different softwares for recording dv from a camera but nothing worked. when i connect it using a usb cable, it works but the image is not as clear as i want it.
Anyone know what my problem is?

You can buy a USB Memory Stick card reader for about $10 in a store, or a multi-card reader for $15 online. No reason to use serial unless you have to.

I have a sony cybershot DCS-T9 digital camera (6 mega pixel, MPEG1 compliant). I was planning to buy a video camera but some one adviced me to buy a memory stick instead and use it for video recordings. The cost of the memory stick is much less as compared to a new video camera. What are the limitations in using a still digital camera as a video camera.

Have a Sony DCR-SX40/LC camcorder. Had to stop several times so my video of a baby shower is in several segments. Would like to put them all together for one video. Cannot find any information on this in the guide provided with the camera and on the online support. Editing functions described are those that are done from the camera and from internal memory to memory stick.

Here is my problem: The tape will not insert into the camera. When the tape cavity is empty, the cavity closes and the camera is ready to operate (except for the message that there is no tape). When a tape is inserted into the cavity, however, the cavity remains stuck open and no further operation of the camera can be performed. HELP PLEASE. No matter what we do, we cannot get the tape to go into the camera. We have taken the battery out of the camera and reinserted it; we have tried a number of different tapes and different batteries and used ac instead of a battery. Nothing will load the tape. We have tons of tapes of our darling boy that we have been transferring to DVD, and if I can't play the tape, we won't be able to view them, let alone transfer them. Please don't tell me to take it to a Sony repair center. I have had enough trouble with this camera and Sony's service to last a lifetime. By the way, this camera is a replacement from Sony for the original "lemon" that we first purchased. Both were brand new when recieved. The model is a DCR-TRV120. Thank you for any help! P.S. The error code is C:31:40

Hello Friends!

I recently brought a Sony P200 Digital camera and since the day I brought the camera, I am facing problems with it. I have tried all modes present in the camera, but no gain. Lets talk about the auto mode.

The first problem with it is related to its LCD screen. The display on the LCD is so dark that literally nothing is visible at all. As soon as I apply some zoom, the screen gets even darker, nearly black. Now when I press the click button to focus, it is only then that some thing is visible on the screen and after focus everything gets dark again. Now thill the time I wont be able to see anything on the LCD, how am I supposed to click any pictures.

Second and even bigger problem is that whenever I click any picture, only one out of 10 come out to be normal. Rest all are either very bright or very dark. I marked this all happens because of the flash intensity. Sometime it flashes so bright that every thing is white and sometime the flash is so low that everything is black. This all happens randomly and there is just no control over the flash light in any way. This means that to take one picture, I have to click not less than ten times.

Today I took the picture of a particular thing about 75 times and believe me, it was only 2 times that I got the perfect brightness. Rest all the times it was either too bright to be white or too dark to be black. I even changed my mode from Auto to other modes but the problem persists. I also marked that this problem is not...

Hello there,I have a Vivitar X30 camera and am running XP Home with SP2 (and take auto updates).The camera is meant to be plug and play with XP but doesn't seem to be recognised. I have tried on two different freinds PCs and it works perfectly so I assume the camera and cable are fine.On my PC when I connect the camera to the PC I get a Windows pop-up advising that this would device would work faster if plugged into a USB 2.0 port (I don't believe I have any of those, and this message was also produced on my friends PC). This seems to imply the camera has been recognised to a degree, however on other PCs the "My Computer" window then shows the camera as a new device from which my photos can be accessed. However on my PC I don't get a "new drive" so I can't access my photos !I have seen a related article in the forum that relates to power issues and have followed the Vivitar support sites recommendation to disable the "power save" feature on each USB Root Hub.USB Data Sticks work fine in the same ports as I'm using for the camera. Vivitar support confirm that no device drivers are required for this camera with XP.Help !!!?

Answer:USB Camera Connection Problem

Try going into device manager under control panel/system and delete all USB ports then restart your PC. It may not help but will do no harm as when the PC restarts windows will find the new devices(the USB ports you deleted) and will reinstall the USB.Then try it again and see what it does.

Answer:Sony Vaio Wi-Fi Connection problem

More info required please - What is the OS; have you Updated drivers or anything recently?
Possibly a simple visit to Device Manager would fix it.
First of all find the Wifi Network Adapter and uninstall it. Restart the laptop and let it reinstall the Adapter and see if this solves the issue.
If not then select the Adapter properties and update the Driver.
If still no good, visit the Sony Website and download the latest driver for your OS.

Until yesterday, when I placed my Hewlett Packard Photosmart 850 digital camera into it's USB dock connected to my WinXP Home machine, it would be detected and picture download would start automatically. However, I had to re-install the Hewlett-Packard photo software package and now when I place my camera in the dock, I'm presented with an error message that reads "Cannot install this hardware. An error occurred during installation of the device. The required section was not found in the INF." This is very disturbing because the camera was working normally 2 days ago. I checked the HP web site for guidance...nothing. I made no changes to my computer or the camera...just re-installed the HP photo software package. Can anyone provide guidance? I have no problem modifying system files or the registry. I've been researching this problem on the net and have found it to not be uncommon, with the typical answer being "...reinstall the software". That hasn't worked for me, however. I've uninstalled every USB device in Device Manager and re-booted. All the devices are re-installed, but I cannot get the camera to install. The problem exists on both USB ports. It seems to very camera-specific.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi guys,

Total novice to this sort of thing so wondered if anybody out there with more experience than me can help.

I have just bought a webcam. I was going to buy a logitech but was talked into buying a "Vimicro" device by the store, and I have to admit it does SEEM a better model. But.......... (theres always a but isn't there!!!)

I have installed the device and using its own capture software etc I can see an image being produced on the display.

If I try and connect using MSN messenger then when the other person accepts all I get is the "trying to connect to ***** computer" before it eventually times out.

If I try to connect using Yahoo messenger then it comes up with an error saying "Yahoo! Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Send/Don't Send report". After selecting wither option, yahoo messenger then closes down.

I have disabled my Norton anti-virus and firewall, but no improvement.

Anyone please any advice???

Folks,I've just been given a new Canon Powershot A540 for my birthday. The Camera itself appears to function perfectly well, (though I haven't got used to all the features yet)...The problem is that I'm having difficulty making the PC "see" it...I read all the instructions first. In common with many USB devices I'm told to install the software before connecting the device, so I do that. Then I connect the cammera and the Found New Hardware balloon appears, "Canon Digital Camera". Then after a few seconds a dialogue appears asking how I want to connect... I choose "Canon CameraWindow", (as per instructions), and am then met by an error message "Cannot Detect Camera. Check connection to Camera then Retry"I have tried everything to no avail!As part of the included documentation there is a leaflet that indicates that the sotware doesn't actually need to be installed because the camera has the PTP standard, but indicates there may be limitations if this method is used...So I do a system restore and back to square one... this time just connecting the camera.

I have a Sony VAIO which I purchased 14 months ago. It has been running warm for a while now until last month it would not start up. When you switch on you get a page of letter a' s then a blue and black vertical striped page then nothing.

The Start up repair will not work.

It took a while but finally I got a response on the Problem Solutions from Microsoft suggesting that there was a problem in that there was a 'video hardware error'.

It has since said there is also a problem with the 6-4 adaptor.

I did try to download a driver update however it says that it can't recognise the software and will not complete.

I have run a registry scan and it found hundreds of problems with Reg Cure however it woill not let me actually make the purchase so that I can get unlimited fixes.

The model is VGN-S71 E

Answer:Video Hardware problem with my SONY VAIO

reg cure wont help , its not a reg issue , either way reg cure still wont help its a waste of cash dont buy it mate trust me. 100% of the "issues" it found wont actually be issues at all , just redundent reg keys which are no problem and never will be.

it seems you have a hardware issue and your only resolution is an RMA (return to manufacturer) or a repair shop (is it still under warranty?) a repair shop will be expensive and most likely a waste of time.

Using Recuva, CardRecovery and Image Rescue, I was able to recover photos just fine, but I have having a helluva time with the movies (I believe they should be mp4 files). Batch #1 recovered as .mov files and are broken into 288 kb or less parts. Batch #2 recovered as .mp4 files, but they won't play. Argh! I have tried to play in WMP and VLC.

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones.

Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

the computer is a Sony Vaio and operates on windows Vista.we use satt internet with a wireless router.  The computer has been updated on virus issues and will connect to the net fine most of the time. but after being idol for a while the net will loose connection yet the wireless card is pickiing up router and there is no issues with the actual satt connection.  Normally I have to restart the computer and the connection comes back with no problems.  Though alot of the times the laptop will not fully restart.  It goes to a screen saying "computer restarting" and will just sit there and never restart.. I have to turn the power off and back on. Then the operating system comes to the black screen and asks if i want to start in normal mode or safe mode.  I click normal mode and it starts back up fine until the net locks up again.. It usually runs fine as long as i dont sit idle long enough for the screen saver to come up.  Any help on the issue is would be appreciated.geeray

Hello,
I'd encountered a problem while I was trying to encode a 4:23 minutes long AVCHD clip with my Sony Vegas program.
It goes like this: I imported that clip, dragged it into the timeline, cropped about 20 seconds of it, added a transition in the middle (the cropped part), rendered as Sony AVC - AVCHD 1920x1080 PAL template and saved.
The size of the original clip is a 530 MB, and the size of the new encoded one is 480 MB which, so far, makes sense.
The problem is when I try to play the NEW clip. The first couple of minutes runs smoothly, quite the same as in the original clip. So far so good, but after that (and actually, it's even a few seconds after the cropping-transition) - the clip begins to go glitchy and jumpy, and you just can't watch it normally.

Does anyone have an idea why this problem occures? And even more important - how can I get it to be fixed?

Thanks a lot!
Jonathan

Hey all.

When I render a video using Sony Vegas 8 Pro, I get sound, but no video. I have followed several tutorials closely but still no luck. I render as a wmv file, change the size to 640x480, but still no video (just sound).

What I think happened is that I had set up Sony Vegas 8 a few moths back and had no problem rendering videos, but yesterday I started the program while holding down Ctrl and Shift (this resets all settings to their original positions).

Does anyone have any ideas how I can get the video to appear?

Thanks,

I had this problem originally and on a clean install of xp and on a clean install of vista (which I'm currently using). The driver is installed, windows recognizes it, skype recognizes it and says it is functioning correctly.  However, when I go to take a picture or configure the video it is all black in skype.  There looks to be a little circle next to the camera on the lid that should light up when the camera is in use/i.e. skype video config?  Well nothing comes on : /.  And no, my brightness/contrast isn't set to 0.  Any ideas?

Hi everyone!I bought my Acer Aspire ES 15 ES1-521-62WL 2 days ago, windows 10 is already updated, and the camera has very poor quality, I really don't think it is just like this, as my 10 year old Acer has better video quality than this one. I would like to know if I need to instal something like acer crystal eye or any drivers? Couldn't find any info about this on the official Acer website. Anyone? Any help much appreciated.

Answer:Aspire ES 15 camera poor video quality problem

If the quality is so poor that you cannot view video and you have checked all settings in the software you are using, there may be a problem with the camera itself which would require repair. Please contact your Acer service location from this link:

I have a DLink security camera, model DCS-930L. The webcam is up and running through my network. However, when I downloaded the recording software for the DLink camera called "D-View" it gives me the following error message when I log in:

"Failed to open COM1 for communication. PTZ cameras or I/O devices may not work properly. Please see if any other programs block COM1".

So, I cannot run this software to record images from the DLink camera. How can I get the COM1 port to communicate with the camera software?

I apologize if my explanation is a little confusing. Please ask questions if clarification is needed.

Note: A few months ago I was using both above mentioned camera and dview software together with no problem. I had a problem with my IP address and had to get a new IP address, this is when the error message started. I'm wondering if the old IP address was somehow saved and that is why the error message is showing? I did delete the dview software and reinstalled it and still get the error message.

Welcome to TSG

Think the teacher is the one that needs to do the reserch on it as it is not true. Sony came out with the video cameras that could see very very good when it was very dark and some how then others started saying you could see tru what people were wearing and it was like x-ray vision.

Answer:sony camera driver

"I tried to install one of the 2 drivers from the support site but in vain"

You need to download and install both files listed for the camera on the Sony website.
They are both applications, not drivers. Both are required to make the camera usable in Windows 7.
The driver is already installed from the Windows 7 DVD, which is why Sony don't provide one.
They just provide the camera applications which have been updated to make them Windows 7 compatible.

I have a brand new DSC-W350 cyber-shot digital still camera.I've only had it for 3mths now.Some days back,I removed the battery from the charger as usual and fixed it into the camera but the LCD screen just showed uniform whiteness when I put the camera on.At first I tot it was the brithness control of the LCD which I adjusted to the minimum,but the problem persisted. I have switched off the camera,removed the battery and have also done some trouble shooting but all to no avail.When the camera is powered on,all you see is uniform brightness,though you can make out faint images when focused on an object.I took some snap shot and imported them into my computer only to realise that the shot appeared okay when downloaded,the only problem been I didn't get a good shot since I couldn't make out from the LCD what I was snapping.I have gone through the entire manual and still could not find a solution to this.The trouble shooting steps on the manual rather instucted I looked for troublshooting icons on the LCD,but non was present.It's like there is no icon on the LCD suggesting a fault yet the LCD is uniformly very bright. Can you guys help out or is this really a major issue.

Many thanks guys.
 

Answer:sony cybershot digital camera

Is it possible you cracked the LCD screen? It might look all white if cracked in the right place. Well, if it's not cracked, it still sounds broken, and Sony will fix it under warranty, although I bet you have to shop it there yourself.. Give their repair center a call.

Hi,

When I checked up it seems that there isnt a japanese make for the above Series. Is this information correct , if so what's the make I should look for if im buying a DSC-W230.
Is this a good Camera for its price.

Or is there any other camera I can look for, for the same price which has better specs/features.

Thanks.....................................
 

Answer:SONY W230 Digital CAMERA

The Jap companies seem to have good quality control over cameras assembled elsewhere. I haven’t encountered a quality control problem associated with where the camera was assembled, and I peruse the camera boards often.

The Sony W series has been good and are usually highly rated. Steve didn’t seem too impressed with the W230 though: http://www.steves-digicams.com/camera-reviews/sony/dsc-w230/sony-dsc-w230-review-6.html

You might read through this: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/Q408budgetgroup/page15.asp Unless you plan on making large prints for the wall or doing extreme crops you can easily get by with seven or eight Mp. I would personally prefer the W120 over the W230 because of the optical viewfinder. It also seems to have good optics and performance.

If you want a sub-compact 12Mp in that price range the W230 is probably as good as most.

Hello. I am running a stripped down version of WinXP Pro. When I connect my Sony DSC-W7 it recognizes the camera but does not have drivers for it. On other winxp machinces it reconginzes the memory stick as a removable drive. I have tried installing the Sony USB drivers, but that hasn't worked. Does anyone know what files I need for this to work? Are they generic camera drivers, or specific memory stick drivers?

You can check with Sony's website, but I've never found anything useful. Before you go rebuilding your system using a full disc, like it should be done, have you tried plugging in the camera and then running Windows Update?

Are you sure you need any drivers, doesn't it just install them when you plug the camera in?

How is it possible to get windows XP to load the device driver for my Sony DSC-P8 cybershot camera?The instruction manual claims that a seperate driver does not need to be installed if the camera is to be used with XP. However, XP realises that a USB device is attached but will not do anything without a driver. I have the sony driver but XP does not recognise it and will not find it to be present in a search. Please help, I have just bought the camera and would dearly love to be able to tansfer images to my PC.Thanks...

Recently, I turned on my Sony camera and it told me it was low on batteries and shut down, leaving the lens still out. Okay, well thats happend before and it'll fix after i replace the batteries. So i replace the batteries turn it on, and on the display it says "Lens Error, Please Shut off and Restart Camera" and I do that, and nothing happens.

Any Help?
 

Answer:Sony Camera Will Not Close Lens

Not a good sign on that one. I do know with Sony and Cannon cameras that you can push the lens back in manually and that will sometimes reset it. I don't recommend doing this unless it's a last resort. If you have a local shop that does camera repair they may be able to tell you if it's going to be expensive or not to fix.
