Does anyone have a service manual for this camera please ?

I need to disassemble it, but can't get it apart.

Thanks.

    Thanks ARCLIGHT1217, but Sony only have user manuals.

    There seem to be some secret clips or fasteners around the top of the case, and I can't see how to release it.

    I'm trying to avoid paying the pros for the work, since I'm quite capable of doing it myself - so long as nothing breaks !

    For those that may follow this thread, the key to disassembly of the SONY DCR-DVD653E Handycam is to first remove the narrow strip of black case at the top. This is the piece surrounding the NIGHTSHOT switch. There are more case screws under this strip. There is also another case screw under the cover in the accessory mount. 

    Once these screws are out, the case comes apart quite easily.

    I've now remedied the "issue", and all's well.

    Thanks to all for their help.

THE MANUAL SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ONLINE FROM SONY.USA.COM. SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THE INFO MY YOUR MODEL NUMBER. TRY THEM AND SEE IF YOU CAN GET THE INFO YOU NEED. ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO TRY TO DISASSEMBLE IT? THAT;S A PRETTY HAIRY JOB. SONY HAS FACTORY SERVICE AVAILABLE FOR PRICE QUOTES FREE ONLINE.

    THE PROBLEM YOU ARE ENCOUNTERING IS THOSE SECRET CLIPS ARE CLIPS THAT ARE ONE WAY LOCKING CLIPS THAT ARE USED WHEN THE CAMERA IS ASSEMBLED. MOST OF THESE CAMERAS JUST AREN'T DESIGNED TO BE TAKEN APART EXCEPT BY SERVICE PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO " BREAK " CERTAIN PARTS THAT THEY THEN REPLACE. SO, THIS IS WHAT YOU FACE. SURE YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE THE PRO'S DO THE WORK?

    OK, GOT YOU POINT, BUT I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE A HARD TIME TRYING TO GET SONY TO TURN LOOSE OF ANY OF THEIR TECH MANUALS ON THEIR CAMERAS. I REALLY DON'T KNOW IF YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SECURE THE NECESSARY PARTS TO RESECURE THE CAMERA AFTER YOU DISASSEMBLE IT. IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE, BUT I REALLY CAN'T SAY. I GUESS IT WOULDN'T HURT TO ASK SONY IF THE PARTS ARE AVAILABLE? WELL, IN ANY CASE, GOOD LUCK!

    NICE TO HEAR YOU WERE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU NEEDED TO DO! SORRY I WASN'T ABLE TO FIND MORE INFORMATION, BUT SONY WAS PRETTY TIGHT LIPPED WHEN YOU MENTION YOU WANT TO DISASSEMBLE THEIR CAMERA! BUT, GLAD IT IS WORKING OUT FOR YOU! GOOD LUCK!

My Sony Handycam DCR-SR40 suddenly began displaying the image upside down. Does anyone know the solution to correct this? Thank you.


This is a failure in the image orientation circuitry within the camera and will require some disassembly to correct. Unfortunately, due to the technical nature of this system, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired 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.


If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com.
