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!

Fungus in the lens


These lenses arn't designed to be taken apart.

A camera specialist may help but they should alwys be kept dry and at room temp never warm and humid. Silicate gel in your storage bag also prevents this from happening.

Good luck

Lens cover won't open


Hi,
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.

( 1-787-236-11 ) MOTOR UNIT (LENS BARRIER)

You can have an idea of this part in below exploded view... I hope these info will be useful.
