Sony Video 8 Handycam Playback Problem
I am trying to play back some old tapes on my Sony Video8 Handycam CCD-FX230 so that I can record them to a DVD. When I put the tape in and press play, it acts like the tape is playing, but the picture doesn't show up. When I try to rewind the tape, the "eject" sign flashes, and it won't let me do anything else other than eject the tape. Does anyone know what is wrong with the camcorder? Do you have to have to use the camcorder if you want to convert 8mm tapes to DVD yourself?
