That means that you have set the camcorder in low light mode.

Try removing batteries to reset the settings, or operate the camera as instructed on owners manual to set Low Light mode off.

Hi,
CCD-F55 is pretty old analog camcorder and symptoms shows that it has weak capacitors on its boards.
You need to replace all electrolytic capacitors on its video, servo, system control, power boards to get back it in work.
You can buy capacitors from Here but cost of repair could be more then camcorder worth.
Good luck.

When recording, no picture thru viewfinder or lcd panel. Records sound. Was working fine, just started this, and the lens cap is off. Any assistance greatly appreciated.


It could be either aperture is stuck or ccd imager chip is defective in your camcorder that will be replaced.
In bright light, look into camera lens, turn ON in camera mode and observe does aperture open like an eye?
If you notice some thing opens right in center of camcorder lens then aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad that will be replaced.
Let me know model number of your Sony camcorder to provide you ccd imager part number info.
Thanks.

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.


Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.
Thanks.

Problem with sony ccd tvr208


CCD-TRV208E is analog Sony Handycam and I think tape was recorder on Digital Handycam.
Digital handyacam model starts with letters DCR-xxx so locate a digital handycam to get tape recordings.
I got this idea when you said, only getting crackling noise and blue screen.
