Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV608 Camcorder

1 Answer

In the Camera mode there is no image just a blank screen

Hi I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TRV608 Hi-8 Analog all other features seem to work fine. I am able to playback. But I am not able to see anything when I switch to camera mode. It had happened before, but started working, and now its gone again. Last time I had tried something with the night shot, on off switch. but I am sure thats not the reason.
If I hit the recording button I am able to get the sound recording, but not the image.
what do you think is wrong with the camera.? will it need to be taken to a repair shop..? The battery is new and all charged up. I tried to search the manual but didn't find anything in the troubleshooting section for this. There is no error code displayed on the screen,.,
Thanks for your help in advance,

Neel

I presume you have checked to see that the lens cap is off? You could also make sure you don't have the "Fade-in" function turned on. Do you see anything at all? Text? If you see text, it indicates that the LCD monitor is working and that you are in some mode that is not letting light get into the camera. Make sure you are ion the all-automatic mode. If you see nothing at all, I'll bet there is something wrong with the screen or the wires connecting to the screen. Do you get an image in the viewfinder?

Sony TVR68 camcorder--Playback mode works fine. In camera mode, I have no image in eyepiece or LCD screen


Hi obx4ever, If this helps, the CCD was a problem I had in a lot of those camcorders and only replacement cured the problem. Only a sony authorized service centre will be able to replace the CCD for you. The CCD is a closed coupled device which generates the image that you see in the eyepiece and LCD screen when in picture mode. Michael.
