Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV22E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Focus issues Hi My Sony DCR-TRV22E camcorder viewfinder and lcd just started to display blue, green, yellow and red colours and you could not see anything but the colours and when recording it recorded the same picture. Playback on previously recorded material worked on the lcd. I took it in for repair and was told the video card was faulty and it was replaced. It now won't focus when using the zoom function from a distance greater than 2 meters. The repair shop think it's the lens that faulty, but say the parts are obsolete and therefore it's irrepairable. Do you have any solutions? Thanks Charles

    My camera will not focus except for aone specific setting on the zoom lens. It is as if set to fix focus. I tired unsuccessfully to reset it to auto focus. Even the reset button does not correct this.

    Dear welcomejee



    Thank-you for your solution. The repair shop (supposedly a Sony repair shop) I went to obviously didn't have the the required tools, but now I know what to ask for I hope to get it properly repaired somewhere else.

    My Sony camcorder has the same problem, even manual focus does not result in a good sharp image.

Hi,
My reply is bit technical. Your camera requires Flang-Back Adjustment.
Above said adjustment will set focus lenses in correct order / position to obtain crispy focus as it was before.
There are few special tools designed by Sony used in Flang-Back adjustment and only Sony Service Centers can perform such adjustments. Non-Sony repair shops do not have such things.
Just for reference, below view shows required tools for adjustments in this model.

How to troubleshoot a video camera when the LCD screen is dark or has no display, in a Sony handycam DCR TRV22E mini


If you see correct picture in Eye Piece view finder but dark picture in LCD that shows problem with connecting flexible wire between LCD board and Camcorder main board. It got cracked/ damaged or broken after some time due to open/ close of LCD in its position.
Replace that flexible wire and problem will be solved.
Post back further question if you have any.
Thanks.

Blue screen when using VCR function


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A blue screen is 'video muting', the player is not getting a decent video signal and rather than display distorted / noisy video, it is muted.  Initially, has a video head cleaner been tried on the camcorder?

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
