Sony DHR 1000 composite out not working??

Hello, I have a Sony DHR 1000 deck that I use to edit DV with Avid & Final Cut. I recently moved. When I moved I made sure to bring my deck in my car so it wouldn't get banged around in the moving truck. Anyways, after hooking up all my equipment the composite output on my deck is not working. I have no idea what happend? I tried using the rca connection, the s-video connection, and the rf connection and at first I was getting some vertical lines then I got a flickering black screen. The Firewire in/out is okay because when I attempt a capture it plays and captures fine. But I need the composite output for viewing on my tv monitor. If anyone has had an issue like this and may know of a solution please share with me. Thanks!

SOURCE: My deck currently will not log and capture footage into my Final Cut Pro.

The problem is that you have a son of a biscuit.

Need to down convert 16:9 to 4:3

Down-conversion Capability
The HVR-1500 has a built-in down-conversion capability that allows 1080i recordings to be output as 480i and 576i signals from the i.LINK and SD-SDI interfaces. These signals can also be output from the analogue component, composite, or S-Video connectors. This allows 1080i recordings to be edited using non-linear editing systems running DV editing software or to be viewed on an SD monitor. When down-converting the 1080i recording, the aspect ratio displayed can be converted from 16:9 to 4:3. Display modes can be selected from Squeeze, Letterbox, or Edge crop.

sounds like a keyboard problem, but check all the electrolytic caps -- bad caps sometimes produce strange symptoms.

Audio Problem with Firewire

The input select switch on the front of the AJ-D230H needs to be in the "OPTION" position, not "LINE". That may help if all the other settings are correct. You will also have to make sure that you have selected the right codecs for the deck that you are using in the software. I am speaking as a Final Cut Pro user so only offer this as a suggestion as these are the things that work from out of Final Cut.

Good luck. It can be very frustrating, but awesome when it all comes together and works right!!!

Error Codes E-2, E-41, E-61

If you're experienced in capacitor replacement, check the capacitors on the mechanical interface board. When these caps fail, you get mechanical errors like you described. I generally replace all the capacitors on this board as a precaution; I've never had a callback when I replace them all.

Recently repaired one of these with what appeared to be a power supply problem; found several defective capacitors on the drive board. The symptoms were similar to what you are seeing.
