Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Lid problems I was cheking a DVD inside the camcorder, everything was normal, I could see the images and everything. Then I wanted to change the DVD inside the camcorder, I pressed the botton to open up the lid and I could here the little bells that indicate when is ready but the lid was closed but a little up, I forced a little and without dificulty it came up but now it will not reconize when the lid is closed and the lid will not open by using the open bottom either. Because the lid is not doing his job, the camara does not work for recording, not even to finalize or to watch already recorded DVD. How much will it cost me to repair this? Who could check this for me? What shall I do?

I fix these and we charge about $40 plus parts
the problem is a switch that is connected when closed and open when opened
so either the switch mechanism can be fixed or they will have to order you a new switch to repair it

Hi, I want to change the mini dv image to dvd


You will need to get a converter program to turn it into a dvd.
There are several free ones out there, but I would use FREE DVD CREATOR. It is easy to use, can convert almost any type of media into a dvd, and....IT'S FREE !!!

Camera won,t turn on or take a charge


If there is a firmware solution on Insignis-Products, you might be able to restore the camcorder to life that way.

However, if the unit won't turn on at all...even when a USB AC charger is used where it should function normally and completely...there is a problem with the camcorder and it may be bricked.

I hope this helps and I hope your camcorder isn't bricked.

My camcorder will not record images but it will record sounds. Please help


My Canon Elura50 did the same. It's a manufacturing defect with the CCD, (The image sensor) mount installed by Sony Corp.

Canon Service centers hounour a full repair of this problem free of charge. You just have to find one close and take it in for "CCD problem"

Incidentally Canon has about twenty or thirty cameras with this same problem. Everything works but there is no image. It's the Sony CCD mount inside Canon Cameras.
Trust me, It's 100% free repair.

Hitachi wants you to use the AC adapter to do any image transfers.
I didn't find a way to transfer from the dvd to the ram ship. You can download the manual from here.

Sony dvd camcorder DCR-DVD201E Lid not closing


Most often, in this case, the locking relay has failed. Sony has an improved part for this. It requires a Sony qualified servicer. I have replaced them before. Good luck, magic seadog

What is the Hitachi Image Engine?


The Image Engine is the combination of the DVD Camcorder lens, CCD, LSI processing circuitry, and the DVD optical laser. Put simply, the Hitachi Image Engine is what drives image capturing in the camcorder. Exclusive and proprietary Hitachi technology.
