My Handycam CCD-TRV36 Hi8 Yellow and Black RCA Jacks Are Broken

Block Image

Is there an easy fix for the yellow and black ports/output jacks for the A/V cables? The problem with the ports has slowly worsened to the point where now I cannot get a picture at all on an outside monitor. (The cables themselves are NOT the problem.)

Is this a good question?

post some good images of what ports you are looking at. Right now I am assuming you are referring to the Video and Audio RCA jacks (front right side of the camera) Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that.

The ports are soldered to the PCB Sony part number A-7073-809-A. Problem is it does not look like it is available anywhere. you may have to purchase a broken camera to replace that particular (V)board. It is also not easy and requires you to disassemble your camcorder. Download the service manual for your Sony Camcorder from here

Yes, I am referring to the a/v RCA jacks and I edited my title/question so it is clear to people. I added a photo. Thank you for the link to the service manual and for the info you provided.

Before I spend money to service the camcorder, I might have a temporary solution: Note the RFU jack in the photo. I ordered an RFU cable to see if I am able to bypass the RCA jacks.


Thank you for the image. Let's hope you can do that. Looks like a PITA to get any board for the camera but possibly the jacks could be replaced by finding substitutes. Let us know how it works out.


I will, thank you! The manual will be helpful if there are other issues that come up. Otherwise, the camcorder still works great and I can watch my old videos on the flip-out viewfinder for the time being.
