Thread: Older Sony Camcorder compatibility

  1. #1

    Default Older Sony Camcorder compatibility

    I have an old Sony CCD V5 Video 8 camcorder that is not repairable. I want to be able to play back my tapes. I have searched ebay but haven't found a CCD V5 but have found several other models but not sure of compatibility.

    I assume my camera is analog because it was purchased in 1989 new.

    All the tapes say Video 8.

    Any assistance or recommendation would be appreciated.

    Thank You

    It may be that the problem you have listed here has long been resolved, but I have just seen it, as I am a newbie here. I had a similar problem, when Video 8 cameras went unservicable. I have however resolved the problem. and am currently transferring all my old tapes to DVD. I am using a Sony handycam, its hi8 with 8mm playback. It's model number is ; DCR-TRV460E.
    I am just playing the tapes on this camcorder and recording onto a domestic DVD recorder bough at Tesco. seems to work OK , hope this helps, get back to me at if I can help further.
