E:61:30 error message

this error is
"Reset position detect error when stepper iris is initialized"

Turn on the power and set to T (telephoto) end by rotating the
ZOOM manual ring. While observing the iris blades in the
lens, turn on the power again and check the iris blades in the
lens work properly. Inspect the iris drive motor of lens drive
block (Pin qh to ql of CN6602 on the VC-582 board), when
the iris does not operate. Inspect the iris reset sensor of lens
drive block (Pin qd to qg of CN6602 on the VC-582 board),
when the iris operate.

Camer says lens cap on but it is not!

The internal iris is probably stuck closed. This is not a repair for anyone that has not worked on cameras before. The lens assembly must be removed and the iris section dis-assembled, and cleaned. Once that is done, it must be re-assembled. There is a possibility that the iris control motor is bad too. You can try tapping the side of the camera close to the lens area to see if you can free the iris, just don't hit it too hard.

Keep us posted.

Hello have a low light setting on my AG-DVX100BP that wont allow the video to show?

Hit the iris button on the side of the camera, then use the dial to dial the iris into an open position and let more light in. Know that the higher the number, the less light coming in, so 16 is just below closed iris, 2.8 is just before completely open iris. The iris is like the pupil of your eye. You should always be in manual iris to control the iris with the iris dial, keeping the video between 4.0 and 6 usually gives you the best exposure (not too hot or too low light.)

You also may have a neutral density filter on. You should only apply this switch if there is too much sunlight. Use nd 1/8th for moderate sunlight, nd 1/64th for bright sunlight. Then adjust the iris with the dial again to get the best picture exposure.

Links with the scheme we have attached for amateurs !!

I have a problem voting in the day with a Sony TRV140E.
I had the image in the recording function.
Up to me after I realized that the iris is locked.
I carefully opened and I removed camcorder iris.
I cleaned with alcohol sheets.
After winding, camcorder worked.
Cause of the problem was that the camcorder has fallen off the tableand the servo zoom has reached a drop of ointment on the iris sheetsand glued.

You probably have the lens cap on, the iris dial closed, or you are in vcr mode rather than camera mode. You may also have the nd filter set to 1/64th, this is only for bright sunlight. When shooting indoors with low light, set the nd filter to off and hit the iris button until iris manual appears on the lcd, then dial the iris dial in front of the iris button up or down to bring the iris to around 5.6 f stop.

Lens cap error on camcorder

That message is displayed when the camera senses no light. You may have a stuck iris on the camera. A good tech can pull the stuck iris and freee it up, but it's very easy to damage the camera, so I wouldn't recommend a consumer trying to do it.

Playback on external device.

The SV-AV100 and the SV-AV50 come with an A/V cradle that allows you to connect to external devices for recording and playback. The SV-AS10 and SV-AV25 are not equipped for this operation.
