Question about Video Cameras
Nothing happens when I connect either the battery or the AC adapter to the camera. We have a tape still in it that we would like to get out.
The camera is an old Sony Handycam CCD-F77
Sony F77's are known for bad power supply circuit boards. I have one that powers up enough to eject or insert a tape but will do nothing else. Recently I took it to a repair shop. Paid $30 to have it diagnosed but elected not to pay the extra $164-$215 to have the board rebuilt.
It is difficult to find people who will even diagnose these old camcorders, but the repairman said the shops that rebuild the boards get 10-15 a week because people really like the high quality of this particular model. I paid over $1500 for mine in 1983 or so and may yet decide to have it rebuilt.
The repair shop I took mine to is Westronix in Salem, Oregon.
