Loose Manual Focusing Lens Device

The manual lens focusing device becomes loose but I can still take video using the auto focus. I am unable to secure it back since the screw heads are from inside the body of the Handycam while the screw threads are on the manual lens focusing device.

There is a bulletin (E31529192) that describes your exact problem and recommends replacing the screws with new different screws to prevent this from happening again. The front section around the lens assembly is only held by 3 screws so access isn't a big deal, just be careful if you try this because there is a cable connected to the microphone that is easy to damage. The new screws are part number 3-056-559-01. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

    Wow, not sure why you rated this solution as "thanks for trying". I did everything short of sending you a copy of the bulletin. Was there any reason you felt I deserved this rating?

While recording the Camcorder goes in and out of focus. If I keep the camcorder running and either zoom or pan out the subject refocuses, but if i hold at that level of focus the subject becomes blurry...


It sounds like you are either too close to the subject or you need to flip the focus switch to automatic.
The Auto/Manual focus button is located on the left side of the camcorder under the LCD monitor flap.
Other than that, does this happen only in low light? The camera will have trouble focusing in low light usually.

I cant seem to get the manual focus to work on my vx2000


Are you sliding the switch from "Auto" to "Man" first? The focus switch is located at about the mid-point of the camera, just forward of the flip out LCD. The focus ring is the larger of the two lens rings, the one farthest towards the front of the camera. The smaller ring behind that one is the zoom ring. Also, make sure something isn't inadvertently pressing down the "Push Auto" button immediately below the focus switch - that can force the camera to autofocus even if in "Man" (manual) focus mode. Hope that helps!

The front portion of my Panasonic DVX-100 is loose


AFTER REMOVING THE LENS HOOD Try to remove the 2 tiny screws in the front of the lens and then you see 4 more screws .What happened is that some force on the lens broke the plastic base for some of these 4 screws.So try with a small screw driver and be careful about flat cable of focus sensor

The zoom button isn't working and therefore when looking through the lens everything is blurry


Follow the instructions below to check and test the focusing of the camcorder.
Manual Focus
✤ In the following situations, you may obtain better
results by adjusting the focus manually.
a. A picture containing several objects, some close to the
Camcorder, others further away.
b. A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow.
c. Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car.
d. People or objects moving constantly or quickly
like an athlete or a crowd.
1. Set the [Power] switch to [CAMERA].
2. Set the [Mode] switch to [TAPE] or [CARD].
(SC-D375(H)/D975 only)
3. Press the [Q.MENU] button.
 Quick menu list will appear.
4. Press the up/down arrow button to select <Focus>, then
press the [OK] button.
5. Press the up/down arrow button to select <Manual>, then
press the [OK] button.
6. To exit, press the [Q.MENU] button.
 The [MF] icon and the [MF/AF] status bar will be
displayed on the LCD screen.
7. Press the up/down arrow button to adjust the focus.
[ Note ]
Manual Focus is not available in the EASY.Q mode.

Make sure the lens is clean--use a soft cloth and don't press hard when wiping--use a circular motion starting from the center of the lens and working to the outside--that way, you wont grind dirt into the glass. If the lens is dirty enough, the camera will actually try to focus on the smudge or finger prints on the lens! Look into the lens and use the zoom button--do the interior lenses move forward and backward? The zoom button could be damaged(liquid or impact), or the lens could be jammed due to impact or liquid( I just fixed my sister-in-law's unit--had cola in it and sugar acts like super glue when dry.)(Lenses jam due to excess heat, too) NEVER leave a camcorder in a hot car. The grease used to enable the parts to move freely and smoothly can flow to sensitive areas and stick like glue.
If the focusing is indeed stuck, the unit must be repaired at a reputable facility. Don't send it in through a retail store unless under warranty.--Hope I was of help.---Rick

Error called E61:00 on my sony dcr-sr35


Hi,
The problem you told is little bit difficult and it needs expertise, anyway telling you the diagnosis and also suggest you to contact any expert to resolve the problem, the detail is given below:
Error E61:00 description is:

Inspect the lens block focus reset sensor (pin 7 of CN5101 on the VC-518 board) when focusing is
performed when the focus buttons of the touch panel are pressed in the focus manual mode,
and the focus motor driver circuit (IC5401 (Non MEGA model) or IC5301 (MEGA model) on the VC-518 board) when focusing is not performed.

Thanks for using fixya.

When I turn it on the focuse is way off and I cant see anythang but a blur of colars.


make sure unit is in auto focus mode. check if lens is set to macro focus. If these are find see if the lens will focus on anything close up or far away, If so the internal lens may require service. I have seen the ribbon cable from the lens come loose from the main board on these also.

Video camera displaying Error code E:61:00


E:61:00 means difficulty in focusing by the lens block. On the MR pin sensor Board CD-285,CN2031 Pin No.8,9 check when peforming the manual focus control. When the focus control is not adjusted manually, check the IC751 on the Mounted circuit board VC253 which controls the focus motor. If you need service manuals write to me.
