Re: Very unclear picture when in camera mode

This problem has been answered and solved. It's a defect which Sony will fix. Go to their web site and service /support should explain what the problem looks like and that (if your problem really is the same) they will fix it free including shipping. I've done it already on my CCD-TRV318.

If You can see an image on the screen in normal mode, the backlight is fine. The problem is on the contact group when You flip the screen. Needs to be repaired in a service center, and it's low-cost operation. Do not try to make it yourself. Sincerely. Alfredo.

Fuzzy or hazzy displayon view finde and screen

If it is not a setting problems, and if the black and white is only on LCD and not on picture, then it is a problem with the LCD. Probably just the ribbon cable not well inserted into the connector.
Camera must be taken apart to fix this problem. Better to have the job done by a technician at a camera repair shop.

Unclear picture

For Models: CC6254, CC6364, CC6374, CC6384, CC6394. When using Quick Review to check the end of your last recording, some distortion at the beginning of the playback is normal. When using the Retake mode to record a scene, the video may darken or become monochromic. Noise bars may also appear. This is normal.
