Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC1E HDV Digital Camcorder
I have a HCR-SR1 and it suddenly starting to behave strange. It closes the lens cover when it is turned on and open it as I power it off. In other words it probably is a software tag that is out of sync with the mechanical position. The message is: Lens Cover not fully open. Turn power off then on. It disappears after a few seconds and instad displays: Cover is not open. When I turn it off it opens the cover and give the following message: Lens cover is not fully closed. I have tried turning power off/on many times. I have also tried removing battery and even pressed the tiny reset-button. This has happened a couple of times before. Both times it suddenly goes back to normal after fiddeling with the camera for hours. Is there an firmware fix or is it a mechanical problem?
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
