Open Question

DCR- IP1E won't turn on

Hi I would like to find out, the camera was working perfectly until recently when i went to charge it all that came up was the red charging light. I left on charge for an hour and now the camera doesn't turn on. The flap at the front (in front of the lens) doesn't seem to cover the lens. My main concern is with the camera not turning on. It has been charged fully as insructed in the manual however its still not turning on. I am unable to do anything with it. The light flashes but there is nothing on the screen and its doesn't make a noise to notify that its working. please help Thank you

SOURCE: CAN ANYONE HELP SOLVE THIS PROBLEM URGENTLY?

Unless somebody comes up quickly with a better solution for you, it may be an internal battery problem, especially if you keep having to set the time.

SOURCE: Sony HC-40E Charging Problem

Try loosening some of the screws on the handycam, to allow you to prise open the case slighly, allowing access to the strip coming from the switch. Cut a thin piece of rubber from an eraser, and gently stroke the wire strip with it. It works!

SOURCE: lens cover not open and blank screen

the problem of your camera is the ccd image sensor...better go to the sony service center for replacing the image sensor..i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is one of the model that sony recall produc and the cover not open error message is a poor contact of the lens cover switch...

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.

Operation


if you power the camcorder from the call socket, if it works that mean the battery has bad.

Black screen


The LCD screen on my Sony gradually lost the image. It is caused by the flexi/ribbon cable that runs from the camera body to the inside of the LCD screen breaking down. The copper tracks have broken. They may sometimes touch to give you a connection , but it will get worse. A replacement flexi is the only answer.
For my DCR-IP1E it cost me £31 (thats uk money....not dollars)
Sony Part Number A-7111-611-A (FP733 Mount) Taking the old one out was slightly tricky, putting the new one in is very tricky! I work in electronics, so I could achieve it but if you are not happy with electronic stuff, find someone who is.Straight forward for a repair shop expert. Tools needed? Just a small cross head screwdriver. Keep all bits with a note as you go along. Good luck.

Sony DCR-HC40 Battery Charging Problem Hi Mates - I did purchase a Sony DCR-HC40 camcorder around an year back and it was working superb till few days back. As of date, i am facing a problem where...


Had the same thing happen to me. Went out and bought a new battery and it, too, does not charge. Apparently something messed up with the in-camera charging system. It will charge for several minutes (charge light illuminated) and then the charge light goes dark. Battery gage shows that there is virtually no time left on either battery (old or new). Anyone have any ideas other than a trip back to Sony?
