Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC3 HDV Digital Camcorder
Hello Arpi! Bertman here; Nicetameetcha! My HC3 is sickly - I bumped it on wood (not even hard) and the front shutters came loose and just "flop around". When I turn on the camera, I can hear the motors trying to open the shutters, then it tells me I can't record because "Lens cover not fully open. Turn power off then on." This of course does nothing to fix it - the shutters are mechanically disengaged from the motor that opens them. I see you posted a reply to a HC90 owner that they just needed to replace the lens barrier. (Part number 178727811) -- Do you know a similar part for the HC3? The unit is otherwise working perfectly. I want to open it myself if I knew how to unscrew the front and get the shutters reconnected. (It seems the "jumped the track" and just need to be re-set.) What say ye? Thanks! - Bert :o)
Well, replacement of the shutter unit (lens barrier)instead of the repair seems more realistic... The part number is: 178739811 Please contact your nearest Sony Service for the price estimate. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
