Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

SONY DCR-HC40 video output way too bright

When I record, everything looks great on the LCD, but when I go to transfer to DVD, the output of the video is way too bright. I have tried adjusting some of the settings on the handycam, but have had no success. It also occurs with pictures I take with the unit. Any thoughts?
Thanks,

SOURCE: HANDY CAM LCD SCREEN BLANK

Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.

Yes, your camera is equipped with iLink port for direct connection with PC to transfer data files.
Download user manual of DCR-TRV320 from Sony Support and go to page 104 to see details of iLink.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40


You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.

Sony HC40 - Burn DVD w/o Sony PC


Don't worry about the manual. You just need to get a firewire cable (since you have a laptop, you probably need a 4 pin to 4 pin cable, but check the port in your laptop to make sure it is a 4 pin. If the port size is the same as it is in your camcorder, you need a 4pin to 4pin cable). For transferring video to your laptop and burning DVD, use the software which came with your DVD burner. If you do not have one, try Dazzle software, it works well.
