ALL is on Your own risk. ALL is on Your own risk. ALL is on Your own risk. ALL is on Your own risk

!!! Always must be using BRAIN !!!

Note: first must be enabled writing to memory: Page: 0 Address: 1 Data: set from 0 to 1 and STORE, after changes set it back ( to P:0 A:1 D:0 ) , but STORE hasn't to be.

NEW: Emergency button on DVin_lite v1.7 and new changes in CHECKSUM . See below.

Here is some useful codes for better work with Sony D8 camcorders. All using codes is on your own risk. . Now I have some codes for new D8 (TRV120,125, 8000 ...) HERE.

All changes make on PAGE D:

Show Clone/Gain


set H4 to 1

- in manual Exposure is displayed Clone and Gain

ZEBRA effect


set H2 to 1

- useful for manual Exposure. Zebra stripe warning, where is much light.

- menu LCD SET

Manual Clone/Gain in AE programs


set L4 to 1

set mode AEA,AES,) to AE button. Switch it with pressing of wheel. Time in AES: 1/50 - 1/10000. But AEA works strange. This must somebody more try. After trying: coin lith. battery must be removed cca 5s.



set L2 to 1

- works after restart. New menu MANUAL SET - WHT BAL

- AUTO, HOLD, OUTDOOR, INDOOR. HOLD memorizes last value from AUTO (you must waiting some time, when analyzing of white ending ).

- enabling recording , switch camcorder to VTR mode in "PLAYER"

DV EDITING - enabling of DV Editing


set H1 to 1

DV EDITING - same as on TRV900

DV-in / firewire / enable - camcorder must be ser in VTR mode ( address 14 L2 to 1 )


set L1 to 1

When L1 = 0, only Analog inputs work ( it is usefull to convert Analog to DV in time. Don't forget - use true cable SCART->CINCH and no SCART<-CINCH boundled with camcorder !)



set H1 to 1

- useful only for control of SONY TV with LaserLink.

- in Player mode

PB ZOOM ( Playback ZOOM )


set L3 to 1

- is possible select segment of picture and display it on TV.

- in Player mode. On my TRV110E has no effect on TV.



Memory of camcorder has checksum. Checksum is checked always, when was unpluged power sources. When is found bad checksum, camcorder is blocked ( not damaged, is possible repair it )

- must be set old data. But camcorder turn off after cca 5-10s and LANC not works. Next sentence aren't validate yet: "You must continualy OPEN/CLOSE door of cassete and in this time works with memory".

I have new function on my DVin_lite ! It is "Emergency" button. When is your camcorder blocked, you can easy switch camcorder to emergency mode and then you can easy repaired data.. How ? You connect the blocked camcorder (AC/DC and main batery are removed, camcorder is turn off ) to PC and run DVin_lite v. 1.7. When you get message: "Check cable ...", press "YES". Insert power source (main batery or AC/DC) and then press "Emergency" button and wait cca 20s to next message and your camcorder is working.

New metod for checksum:
1) enable changes in memory: 00:01:00 to 00:01:01 (Store)
2) change data on page D, how You need (all with STORE).
3) read new value "xx" from 02:F0
4) enable update and visibility of checksum on (0F:FF) :
00:FF:00 -> 00:FF:02 (STORE)
00:01:01 -> 00:01:80 (STORE)
5) update new checksum:
write to address 0F:FF data "xx" ( from 02:F0 ) (STORE)
6) disable changes:
00:FF:02 -> 00:FF:00 (STORE)
00:01:80 -> 00:01:00 (STORE)



Download of lite program for change memory: DVin_Lite . Adapter is same as for ANIN.



- For memory dump you can use rm95 freeware in DOS prompt or DOS: RM95DUMP.EXE > memory.txt .


Is misstake to use address 15 for compensation of checksum when are inputs enabled on E models. NTSC models have on this address still 18 and have enabled inputs too !
