Sony dcr-dvd201 access error

I ve had my cam for 4 years now, so far it has given me no trouble except recently, when the disc door wouldn't close (fixed) and now I recorded outside, i windy conditions. It immediately said access error, and stopped recording, so now I cannot take any video, all I can is photo. Even recently when I took a few photos, two frames were black.. I cannot view the frame 'before and the one after' the first and second black (frames 18 and 19) so frames 17 18 19 20 are inaccessible..
What is technically wrong with it, how do I get it to record 'video' again...

Try to clean its optical lens with soft and good quality cotton stick / bud
If this not fix it, camera needs new optical lens.

From the user manual on page 6, this camcorder can only use DVD-RW or DVD-R DVDs (It can't use DVD+R, DVD+RW, etc).
Take the DVDs that you purchased back and buy the correct type.

Lost the charger of my sony dvd201 cam corder. is there any other way i can charge my camcorder?so i dnt have to buy a new charger? and do i need power to open the camcorder disc door?


Hello. Yes, you do need power to open the disc door. When you slide the disc cover open switch, you should hear the little musical sound, and then the "preparing to open cover" appears in the lcd display. Then the door opens automatically. As for charging the corder, you can get a new ac charger for 25 bucks on Ebay. Sony uses a special plug that is inserted. If you want to go the cheaper route, I saw mobile *battery* chargers for your unit(not to be used as camcorder power supplies) as inexpensive as 8 bucks...most were 10 dollars and up...the input voltage/current to the cam is 12v @ 500ma. However, the fact that the connector isn't the generic "cylinder" shaped power connector makes purchasing a compatable power source a necessity. ---Rick
