Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
This camcorder is about 3 years old. ON playback, everything recorded earlier is fine. However, when I try to record now, I get vertical (greenish brown) lines on the screen and all I can see is light in the background. I do not see the battery and tape indicators either. I do have an 8 month old at home and need this to work or I need to replace it and want to know if it is worth fixing. thanks
I called Sony support and they confirmed that this is a problem with the CCD. I have been asked to return it to the Sony service center and they will fix it free of cost. This is in the US. Apparently, Sony lost a case that was raised by another consumer some time in 2005 so it has to do these replacements if they confirm that it is a problem with the CCD.
