Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR818 Camcorder
We have not used the camcorder in a couple of months. When we tried to use it now, though, the viewfinder shows a really dark red image. Also, the camera is stuck in the zoomed-in position. When I tried to zoom out, the camerea responds really slowly and, as soon I let go, it zooms back in all the way, automatically. The batteryu is fully charged and there is a fresh tape in there. By the way, I did record a little like this and the playbacj on the TV was also dark red and blurry.
You may have more than one problem by your description. The dark, red picture could be the result of a defective CCD (element that makes the picture) or an iris assembly that is not working properly. If the camera is trying to zoom in one direction or the other, there may be bad connections, corossion damage or a failed operation assembly. I charge no estimate fees, parts at cost, with a flat labor rate of $125.00. Contact me if I can be of further assistance to you.
