Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD101 DVD Camcorder
We turned on our Handycam and nothing appears in the view finder or on the screen. There are no error messages appearing, and it will record and take pictures, but we can't see anything - almost like a lens cap is covering the lens, but there is no lens cap! We tried adjusting the brightness, but that didn't help. Any ideas?
This solution is helpful. I was going to buy another camcorder....

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,
and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
