Question about Sony HDR-HC1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I turn on my Sony HDR-HC1 it continuously cycles on and off. If I switch it to photo mode (camera mode not video mode) and then switch it back to video mode it sometimes stops cycling. I tried reseting the unit with the reset button and that didn't work either.
I had this exact problem, and the cycling would stop after about 30 sec. and then function properly. I believe a circuit was confused, mainly because I used an older battery and let it run out till the batt was dead - accidently - and when I put in a fresh batt, it no longer cycled and works perfectly to this day.
Now if I can get my computer to recognize the camera via firewire, I'd be golden.
