My Camcorder switches it'self off

Okay well i got my camcorder back from sony today from having the automatic lens cover not opening. And now a whole new problem happens; when i twist the switch to turn on my camcorder, after a few seconds, it makes the starting up noise it makes and the lens opens etc, but then almost as soon as i can see the LED screen light up it just switches itself off.
it is not the battery which is causing this, it was almost fully charged, and i have tried it plugged into it's charger
please help!

Lens Cover not fully open


It sounds like a problem with the firmware in the camcorder itself. As an authorized Sony repair person, I have gotten no technical bulletin on this model. The firmware is preloaded into the microprocessor IC. You will need to have this unit looked at by an authorized Sony repair center who specializes in camcorder repairs or send the unit to a Sony factory service center. good Luck

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.


E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.

Lens Cover


The micro motor broke in the dust cover that opens and closes the cover. If your camcorder is still operational then I would not worry too much. Only when you can not get pass the error messages to operate then you will need to get a new one from sony (~$50). If you are mecahnically sound to take apart small things otherwise, take it to a professional.
