Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Repair lens PDX10

I dropped my PDX10, camera still works, but the lens won't focus its blurry. If I zoom in-,the focus works fine on high zoom,- but it won't focus if I slightly zoom or if there is no zoom. I tried manual focus but that doesn't work either, and no matter how many times I turn the focus (on manual) it doesn't look clear- it's off slightly. Can I remove the lens or adjust it, if so how?

Thanks Rob MacRiner rmacriner@sympatico.ca

It sounds like the optics in the lens are no longer calibrated. It needs to be looked at by a professional.

The autofocus is not working correctly anymore. It has been in use the last couple of years almost daily during the fall to video tape football practice. It used to work fine. You could zoom in or out...


This happens when the internal focus lens is off track or impaired in some way and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

DCR PC 105 was dropped. Now auto focus only works on a limited range of the zoom lens. Can't go wide or too close. Is there a way to fix/replace the lense or auto focus? Does the lens easily come out?

Panasonic SD5 won't focus after being dropped. Have turned it off and on...removed battery etc. Got message to reset, have done that several times. It will record but only very blurry unrecognizable...


Hi Violet. I'm afraid I don't have any good news about this kind of problem, and I'll tell you why. When the cam won't focus, it's usually a problem with the lens assembly, and the fact that you can't zoom verifies that. There are a lot of small plastic parts in the lens assembly that can break easily, or get jammed. When that happens, service is required on the unit, to replace the broken part, or reset the assembly, but often they just replace the whole lens assembly. Is it still under some kind of warranty? In that case, I would have to looked at. If you do choose to get it fixed, and you have no warranty, get an estimate first. Repair costs can be high, and at that point you have to decide whether to repair it, or get another cam. Wish I had better news for you, but hope this helps in your decision of what to do next. Good luck, and be careful, these cams are great, but delicate!

JVC Digital Camera focus


Did it work before? If so then it sounds like the focus motor/screw jack has failed and needs replacing. With some JVCs you can replace the whole lens system and a new one will re-calibrate itself, but I'd have to check on this model.

Lens failing to function properly


Yes, this is a strange issue. Have you dropped the unit, or maybe 'bumped' it or anything similar. I know alot of times, people like to 'hit' their unit, to get it to do things (like eject tape). What people don't realize, is that these machines are prone to damage when hit hard enough (just like anything else).

In any event, this is not an misconfiguration issue, and you won't be able to fix it. You would need to bring it in to a qualified service center for an estimate. Be sure to shop around to find the best price and service. Since parts for these are not cheap, and they are labor intensive.

Good luck.

Hope this helps some.

Lens failing to function properly


Possibility is two. 1. If the lens contact to the body is not good so make sure the contacts are clean and position is locked completely. 2. 90% of the solution comes from repair on Main circuit in the lens. Good Luck. For further assistance go to www.camerarepairjapan.com James.
