Dec 8, 2015 - There is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCDwhen attempting to ... Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD. IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD.
This sounds like a colour balance problem. If you have set colour balance for daylight, then pictures taken in artificial light will be yellowish (or greenish under flourescents). It is best to leave the colour balance set to "auto".
The viewfinder and the picture lens are totally separate. If it looks fuzzy, and then comes out fuzzy, the capture screen inside needs cleaned. The main lens and viewfinder lenses should be cleaned too.
Get estimates before you say yes to the work. It might be cheaper to buy another camera, unless you can do the work yourself.
This is a internal circuit problem/defect and cannot be done on our own, so u should take it to SONY service centre. Avoid keeping the camera near hot temperatures zone. Sony is not tolerant to many physical factors.
This sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?template_id=1&news_id=131#
The Dimage models that Sony is accepting for the recall repair are:
Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.
Defective ccd imager!! company will replace this ccd imager free of charge. Year 2002 up to 2005 released unit has a factry defect ccd imager. the company recalled these unit and replaced with a stronger version of ccd imager( they are still doing it). check it out.
The zoom does not work on the T7 while you video, you have to zoom first and then start to video, then it is fixed at that zoom setting.
Other than that, the video is pretty good, I have taken video clips up to about 5mins (but in theory you can go up to the limit of the mem card and battery - battery from full is about 40 mins from the top of my head and my 512mb mem card could do about 30 mins on best quality)
The sound is good, and the picture is pretty good, but obviously there is no 'flash' function, so you are looking at daytime or well lit video only.
One thing is that you do need a steady hand, because the unit is so small (a great benefit most of the time) you do get a fair amount of camera shake if you do not have a very steady hand... usually the morning after the night before for me! :o)
I have been pretty happy with it a a fun video accessory, but if you want the camera for that as a main use, I would look around.
Ouch! That does not look good at all. I assume you've looked at all the common stuff (fresh batteries, debris in the battery compartment, etc.)? If so, it looks to me that you camera needs to be looked at by Sony...
