Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD203 DVD Camcorder

Lens Cover I cannot close the lens cover on my Sony DVD- 203. The motor whirrs, but the lens doesn't close. I last used the camcorder at the beach, but was careful not to get sand in it.

The micro motor broke in the dust cover that opens and closes the cover. If your camcorder is still operational then I would not worry too much. Only when you can not get pass the error messages to operate then you will need to get a new one from sony (~$50). If you are mecahnically sound to take apart small things otherwise, take it to a professional.

Sony HDR-XR200 lens cover problem


You have two options, replace the motor that opens and closes the lens cover or remove the lens cover shutters all together, and use a 30mm lens cap.

I have the same problem as another user who wrote: "I hardly used my camcorder. All of a sudden my camcorder can't focus, and I got a message E:61:10 on the screen." All my research on the net indicates...


for blinking E:61:10, this mean a very fine dust get inside (front of) len! must always close the len cover when NOT IN USE! to correct this, do 3 things at once, use AIR DUSTER(one use for computer blowing out particle out of the computer parts, etc.... airblow gentle in the len area at the same time as gently shaking the camcorder and zooming in/out the len! this will works most of the times.... I RECOMMEND NOT BRINGING CAMCORDER TO BEACH!!!

Camera lens cover will not fully open


Maybe not a remedy for everyone but, I tapped all around the lense with a soft wood ruler stopping to turn the camera off and on periodically. I noticed a lot of sand, we live at the beach, came loose. It took me a little while to do this as I was being caeful not to damage anything else on the camera. Finally, the cap just opened and has ever since. Good luck.

Lens cover


Try giving the camera a fewsoft but forceful whacks by the lens cover area. Hard enough to possibly unjam the cover but not so hard as to cause more damage. Best to use your middle finger and tap on it like you're typing really hard. Then try to cycle it open/closed a few times. If that doesn't work it's a mechanical problem which needs to be addressed by a repair shop.

Lens cover not open and blank screen


the problem of your camera is the ccd image sensor...better go to the sony service center for replacing the image sensor..i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is one of the model that sony recall produc and the cover not open error message is a poor contact of the lens cover switch...
