Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR80 HD Camcorder
I havea sony handycam dcr-sr80. When filming outside the night shot plus still stays on. I see how I can turn on and off Super NS Plus but for some reason NS Plus is on when not required. I am unable to see anything in the view finder as I believe the exposure is set to night time and allowing too much light in. I have read the manual and played with the menu. Is there away to "reboot" or adjust the exposure setting to turn off NS Plus when outside

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

Just call 1-800-222-7669 Sony Support. They will send you pre-UPS label and you mail your camcorder to Sony support. They will replace the LCD View finder for free. I did it about a year ago.

The problem you are having is called a "stuck iris" Inside the lens are two thin plastic sheets that slide over one another that limit the amount of light that comes into the lens. In some Sony camcorders, the motor or "actuator" that drives the iris, or moves the two sheets which are the iris opened and closed. The actuators sometimes leak oil onto the plastic sheets causing them to stick, so the light coming into the lens is stuck at one level. Some technicians will recommend lens replacement (expensive) but many times the iris assembly can be removed from the lens and cleaned. Try to find a service shop that will clean the iris rather than replacing the lens.
