Question about Sony Handycam DCR-IP1 Micro MV Digital Camcorder
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

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.

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!

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...
