    I did not see any mention of an a/v cable which would have been originally supplied and essential for viewing/transfer.
    this is also from Sony information

    from page 34 you can get al details

    When I have been forced in to an Ebay auction for an item I really wanted I would enter a maximum bid as late as possible before the auction ended.


    One other issue is that the seller could have entered a reserve price and even if you were to win if your final bid was below this he is under no obligation to actually sell it to you.


    BTW what is the power supply details in Bahrain. UK is 220/240 volts. The US is 110/120. I just mention these in case power to the camera is an issue. I still do not think that power was a reason for no signal in the NTSC camera.

    This still makes me curious. The NTSC camcorder would, I assume, have come with a power adapter for 110 volts to whatever the camera required. How did you fit that adapter for your own country's 220/240 volts.


    Some weeks ago, I contributed to a thread where a US member had acquired a UK device. He did not understand why it did not fully work. Only when he could feed 220/240 volts to it did it work.

    Camcorders and laptops have universal voltage compatibility, All what's needed is the socket adapter.

    Digital8 PAL camcorder is ideal, It can playback all 8mm format tapes V8, Hi8 and D8, From there you can capture from S-Video out or via firewire card into DV format. Just make sure you get one that plays back analog tapes or post the model # here and we will tell you if it's good or not.

    That's a Hi8 camcorder, Get a D8 one better. The auction will most likely go up to $200, expect to pay that much or more.

    There is no indication that this video camera is PAL. And I would guess since the seller is in the US that it is NTSC.


    And I already inferred a reason why these auctions go up in price. These camcorders are really legacy items now. Very little actual, IMHO, demand - the technology has been superceeded.


    But if there really is demand maybe I should sell my own which I have not used for many a year

    Some info:


    My camera, which appears to be in working order but I can not put my hands on a tape to check playback is a Sony CCD-TRV238E PAL.


    The indicator on the camera says 'HI8'. However. page 18 of the user manual states (this is the original printed manual)


    "You can use standard 8mm, and HI8 video cassettes on your camcorder" which confirms to the above screen.


    Transfer is by the supplied composite (no s-video) A/V cable. Also comes with a 100-240 volt power adapter. Confirmed as working with this.


    If you are interested then it is best to continue this conversation by Private Message. My only concern is finding an appropriate shipping method.

    Lets take DCR-TRV460E and DCR-TRV461E off the list since they are not equipped with S-Video out.

    And as far as I can tell neither does my 238E.


    Ultimately it is up to the OP if he really wants that. Yes I know that quality will be better for it.

    According to the service manual it should, Why would the service manual be different than the real product, Can you double check the ports again, Some have plastic covers on them.

    Well I am reading the user manual. There is NO mention of s-video. Surely if the connection existed there would be mention of even an optional cable.


    I am trying to help the OP out. But the shipping could a PITA

    From the list you posted, the 238E (3rd item) actually loads 738E. That might explain the discrepancy.

    No, That manual is for DCR-TRV238E, DCR-TRV239E, DCR-TRV340E and DCR-TRV738E, The manual lists the differences between the models but all have S-Video, Can you double check your exact model from the data plate?

    Bingo! Your model is CCD-TRV238E, Not DCR-TRV238E. Yours is a low budget Hi8 not D8.

    ^^Well it may be 'Low Budget'. Yet back in 2005, when it was acquired new (140) it was all I needed. Sure there were better and now they will also be cheaper.


    And I see a listing on Ebay for one used at HIGHER than this cost.


    If the OP wants to pay more for features he will not use eg digital transfer via firewire then do him a favour and actually find a camera for him.


    I am beginning to be sorry I even offered to assist. And, no, I would not charge 140 for it.
