My uncle lent me his old Sony Handycam (model CCD-V600E) to digitalize some Hi8 cassettes.
The camera is supposed still working, but lacks the AC power adapter and battery charger.
So i'm planning to use an universal power adapter with 2 wires going directly to the battery contacts:
According to the manual the power requirements on battery mounting surface are:
For the voltage i guess i should go with 7.5V.6.0V (battery pack)
7.5V (AC power adaptor)
9.0V (alkaline batteries)
power consumption: 6.9W (in recording mode)
Now the problem is the amperage:
i have 2 universal power adapters, with 500mA and 1A output.
According to my calculations (6.9 < 7.5*1 ) the 1A one should supply enough power.
Am i correct?

I think you'll be ok if it's working.
You really should check the voltage and milliamperes in the manual.
Just why Europe hasn't standardized their outlets is another matter...
PS - My uncle lent me his old Sony Handycam.
The manual doesn't mention the mA requirements,
but the watts:
6.9W < 7.5V*1A
So i'm a bit over the requested power, i hope this won't be a problem...
I've tried acquiring some cassettes, but the playback stops after a few minutes.
Also sometimes the camera is unrensponsive to commands and powers off.
I think i'm giving up, i don't wanna risk breaking my old tapes...
I am also fiddling with a CCD-V600E camera. In my case I have the original power adapter, but I got a cassette stuck on the deck and I can't get it out.
Does anyone know if there's a way to manually eject a cassette on this vintage camera?
