Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder

Black and white playback on television screne

When the camera is connected to the TV, playback on the TV is black and white. Playback on the camera LCD is normal and in color. I have tested the problem in the following ways: The television plays other programs and DVD's in normal color. The s-video and the RCA/yellow head video cable produce the same result. Different tapes, some previous some recent, all play black and white on the television, but in color on the LCD. The camera is functioning normally otherwise. I have had it three years and use it fairly constantly. Could this be about cleaning the heads? Please say it is.

    You were exactly right.

    I couldn't believe it at first, but when I looked at the TV manual, I found that the color system control is a tiny button next to the RCA input. I must have hit it inadvertently. Thanks so much.

Select the correct color system in your tv. probably the system which was selected in your tv did not match that of your video cam. good luck!

NOT GETTING COLOUR FROM CCTV DVR TO TV BLACK WHITE


Missing information alert. What is meant by "to TV black and white"? Are you saying you can't get playback on a black and white (and therefore old, analog) TV set? What connection set up are you using between recorder and the playback TV? At first glance it would appear you might need a digital to analog converter to process the DVR output prior to feeding it as a SD (standard definition) signal into your TV set for mmonitoring. thanks for clarifiying your question, including a description of your setup.

No images but records sound


To start ensure that you removed the cover from the lens.
Also remove battery and put it back in place to reset the camcorder.

If you get only sound on playback, connect the camera to a computer or TV, or play the tape on a different camera. If you get picture in there, then the camcorder is recording, but the video playback does not work because of a faulty LCD display.
If when you play back the movie on a different camera, or using the compute you still get no picture then the camcorder is faulty.
Faults that can cause black screen can be:
Lens problem. Faulty CCD sensor. Faulty controller board.
All this faults are not easy to diagnose and fix, if there is a fault , then it is better to take the camera to a repair shop.

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks

No chroma on playback


Bad heads may produce a loss of color in playback. If you have a spare head, swap it out and confirm this.

SLIDESHOW function


You can play the images in your camera on a TV or save them to videotape by connecting the camera with the bundled Audio/Video cable. Power up the camera in the PLAYBACK Mode, press the OK/MENU button to open the menu and using the arrow keys toggle up to begin the SLIDESHOW. You can even change the playback format in the MODE MENU. Press the OK/MENU button and using the right arrow key select the MODE MENU. Toggle down to SETUP, toggle right to enter the SETUP MENU and toggle up once to PLAYBACK SETUP. When you toggle right you will be offered four playback options: NORMAL, SLIDE, FADER and ZOOM. When selected you will get the following effects: NORMAL - Each image instantaneously replaces the previous image. SLIDE - The images are sequenced by sliding from right to left. FADER - The images are sequenced via a lap dissolve. ZOOM - The images are sequenced by zooming in to black and zooming out from black.
