Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Dear technician, The normal situation when I begin to record is to have the display screen that opens out to be CLEAR. Lately however, when I open it and start to record I notice a dominant ROSEY OR PINKISH hue and I cannot remove it. Please help me restore this screen to CLEAR. Many thanks and I do look forward to your advice. Antonini

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
