Hi everyone ,
I just joined CNET today and wanted to say THANK YOU for helping me get my Sony CCD-TRV29 Video Handycam to play tapes again ! After reading many threads on this matter , I finally found this very helpful info. here on CNET. I did what what it said and after carefully smaking the tape side of the camcorder unit with my hand 1 time with it turned off , I powered it up and pressed play and it now works as designed. I really appreciate those who share this kind of helpful information like this.
Thanks again for caring to help others with your knowledge, John F. ( from Pa. )
