    Hi Zeffy thank for your comment. I can get out of all the menu options but the problem is there is no picture displayed on the screen in camara mode.
    Lens cap open just no picture. Its like the link from the lens to display is not working.

Can't Video on my DCR-HC20


Yes, there was a major recall exercise conducted by Sony to replace faulty CCD imagers in a wide range of Sony products. I've had the CCD in my HC20 replaced a year ago, free of charge. I strongly recommend that the camcorder be taken to an authorised service center to have this issue resolved. Thanks!

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.

It is possible that your CCD has gone wrong. Best thing is to take it to a Sony Repair Centre, and if it is that it will be repaired for free, even if the warrenty has expired.
