Question about Photography
I have the "lens cover won't open problem" on a DCR-DVD653E that I see a number of people have been struggling with.
The lens cover can be pushed open. A whirring noise occurswhen I turn on the camera, but the cover doesn't open.
I'm prepared to open up the camera myself, but can you tell me what I should be looking for?
Alternatively I'm thinking about just super-gluing the lens cover open. The camera is no good as it is and it loks like the repair cost is more than a new camera. Hence if I damage the camera, I've really lost nothing.
This looks like a product error to me and it must be costing Sony business.
You should look for "lens cover mechanism" when open camera front cover. This part has defective gears or misaligned some thing internally. Part detail is as under for Sony DCR-DVD653E model.
