Hi no need to disassemble the device all you need is long thin tweezers take the battry out look inside the socket (with light) and find the silver\gold connection battry tabs with the tweezers elevate the tabs for better connection on the lid is a spring like (push the battry in place) elevate it too if this wont work buy a new battry before taking apart the device good luck

The Windows 7 Operating System is not compatible with the USB Streaming feature of the Camcorder.

You can transfer the videos to the Windows 7 Computer using an i.LINK (Firewire) Cable.

You can use the Windows Movie Maker Software to transfer the videos from the Camcorder.

Please follow the steps mentioned in the below link to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer

SOURCE: My Sony DCR-pc55e keeps flashing E:61:11 and the

E:61:11 is an error with the lens. The only thing that you can try to do yourself is to try bumping the front of your camcorder and around the lens area with the palm of your hand. There are lots of people online saying that this worked for them. You might try this first with your camcorder off. If the problem is not fixed when you power on your camcorder, try it again while powered up. Otherwise, your camcorder will need to be repaired by an experienced technician.

Hope this helps you.

Hi i have a sony dcr-pc55e and when i go to use it the lcd screen falls down and doesn't hold in place, do i need a new hinge or bin the camera?


Sounds like you need to have the hinge assy replaced. This should probably be done by an experienced technician. Amazon is still selling this camcorder for $585 so it is probably worth repairing...unless there is another camcorder with more bells and whistles that you have been wanting, then I would recommend putting that money towards a new one.

Hope this has helped.

Cant get my sony handycam dcr-pc55e tape on my pc .


Hi, I was wondering if you are using the AC Adaptor while downloading video? When you are not operating the camera, it will shut off automatically after approximately 5 minutes. This is to save the battery. It can be changed in the Standard Set menu: The item is called A.Shut Off. This can be changed to Never. Otherwise, I would use the AC cable if you aren't already.

there can be many reasons. rusted contacts, or blown up fuses, or a short circuit in the power board, and may be some thing else. No one can help unless he examines the camera.
