Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX1000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony vx1000 program functions not displaying in lcd and viewfinder

My vx1000 got a wet at the end of a taping and I turned it off, then on to a white viewfinder screen. I turned it off immediatly, then turned it on again and it worked fine but now the program functions do not display and are not working both in the bc door and the viewfinder. It operates normaly otherwise.I suspect a water droplet made its way into the bc door area along the hinge and has shorted out a circuit. What can I do if anything, where can I get parts or must I send it for repair. I live near Toronto Ontario Canada.

You'll have to find a local repair center that handles Sony or send it to Sony's factory repair center. Look on Sonny's website for instructions that will apply to you.

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...


Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

No display in viewfinder and LCD


i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.
