Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
No image in lcd or viewfinder... sound is recorded but msg 'cover not open' flashes during record and no image is recorded when cover is closed msg 'cover not open' is present, not flashing there has been no trauma to the camcorder hve tried tapping the lens to open stuck iris (?) but nothing... is this one of those defective ccd that sony will fix w/o charge? or something more nefarious?
Had same issue. Appeared to solve it by turning off USB Streaming when not connected to pc.

Maybe you have the wrong type of tape or check and change all of the settings to normal
