Sony CCD-TR101. After replacing most, but not all capacitors, playback of Hi8 is great (video and audio). However, the video8 tapes I cannot get audio from. I know that there is a good chance that all the tapes shot in video8 (which is the majority of them) are older than the Hi8, and were possibly shot on another unit, but when I first started this project, the audio did playback, but about halfway through the first video8 tape the audio went out, then the video. That led to the recap which brought functions back except the audio on video8. I have tried several video8 tapes with the same result. All videos shot in Hi8 playback fine. I thought they used the same audio head/s and format. Maybe I'm wasting time. Any thoughts on this?
