Blurry screen After going to the beach, we got home to watch our video, and the screen on the video camera was blurry. I'm guessing some sand or water got in the camera, but i'm not sure. The screen is still blurry, can anybody help?

Re: blurry screen

If you got sand/water in unit, it may damaged the circuits. You may have it cleaned completely, which could cost as much as a new camera.

While video taping my sons game today the video randomly went blurry and there is a vertical line going across the screen what is this caused by and how do we fix it

This sounds like an internal issue. I can first recommend to confirm your camera is in AUTO mode. Second, i would see if those lines show up if you connect camera to TV. If it does, there is an issue with optical of camera, if it doesnt, might an issue with LCD screen

I have wide blue lines going through the screen when trying to watch what you have recorded. You can record with out the lines being there but there are lines when trying to watch it. I bought a head...

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Picture is very blurry on screen what can i do to stop this please

Ah, my best guess would be that you have the auto-focus setting turned off. You'll have to go into the menu options (not sure exactly which ones) and look for either "Focus" or "Auto Focus" and set it from manual, to auto. Play around with the settings, get used to what they do, check in the owners manual if there's something you're not sure of, and if this doesn't fix the problem post again and I'll see what I can find out.

The video image keeps coming blurry

The focus ring in the lens assembly could be jammed up by dust, lint, sand, or dirt. Try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly to free it up. If that doesn't work, sometimes you can gently hit the camera against the palm of one hand, in the hope of freeing it up.
Otherwise, you will have to have it serviced.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

The videos that I do are blurry

Hello Friend,
if the videos that you are taking are blurry, this can be related to a wrong configuration or screen issue or lens issue. here is how to diagnose the issue:
1. first you can start by doind a reset factory of your camcorder, this can be done from the camera menu.
2. if after reset the problem persist, you will need to check if it's related to the screen or no. you can check that by transferring the videos to your computer and play them from there. if they are blurry even on your computer. that means it's not related to the screen.
3. Try to take videos in different places with different conditions (dark place, in public place during the day with natural light, indoor with light ...) if they are all blurry in all places, that means it's related to the lens.
4. In this case, you can try to clean the lens with a Microfiber tissue and see if this will help. otherwise the lens is broken and needs a repair and in this case i hope that the camera is still under warranty.
Good Luck!

DSR 390 error

If you put it down on the sand you probably got moisture or sand in it or possibly both if you put it down on a towel you may have gotten sand in it, try pulling the camera apart carefully and cleaning the chip boards unfortunately salt water will actually eat the protective coating on the boards and salty sand is worse most times you can't save them, sorry hope it works for you though

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.
