Ive had this camcorder for years and years a SONY HANDYCAM TRV460. It works great except when u try to take a photo with it, it gives an error saying reinsert memory. Then the video became blocky and would drop out. I tried cleaning, nothing worked. Costs more to get repaired than its worth. I got disgusted with it and slapped the top of it while the tape was playing and BOOM.. its been working great. The fix has lasted and I think Ill transfer all my tapes to digital media as soon as I can. After a while tapes degrade. I just want to say thanks to whoever suggested tapping it.
