Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV33 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camera no longer captures images. The view finder appears black when it is on standby and when I turn on record, the image is pure black. The VCR mode still works. When I played previously recorded tapes, everything worked fine. I think the video processing board/chip is toast. How do I repair this? Does any body have a detail service manual? I would like to take it apart. Thanks, MyFix
Take a look at this sight.

Sounds like your imaging block is bad or a ribbon cable came loose. You can get the service manual for $24.00 US at http://www.servicemanuals.net You will need a good jewelers screwdriver set, magnifying glasses, a steady hands and a whole lot of patience. Make lots of notes as you disassemble the unit if you ever want to get it back together. After you get it apart check for any loose or disconnected ribbon cables, especially in the area of the CCD block which is the front of the unit behind the lense. Good luck and let us know how you make out or if you need any more help.

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,
and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
