Sony Handycam For some reason, when I turn on the camera, there is no view. When I record, there is no video but there is audio. Once in a while it works but I can't depend on it. The battery is good. Any suggestions?

Sony dcr-dvd105 no sound


Try this:
Play back a recently recorded scene through the viewing screen. Make sure any "mute" setting is turned off and turn the volume up. If you can hear the sound, the problem is not in the camera. Also, run through your menu's audio settings to make sure that they are set correctly.
If you can't hear any sound, repeat the process with an external mike attached. If this gives you sound, the camera's built in mike is defective. Time to hand it in for repair.
If you still can't hear any sound, something else is wrong with the camera. Again, send it in for repair.
