HDR-HC1 flashes when recording outside only but not when recording inside. the LCD screen blinks light & dark. thanks john


This is a fault in the electronic aperture control and will probably cost you $800 if you have it repaired by Sony. However, There are many qualified independent repair shops that will do the repair at a discounted price.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have it repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Perform the following troubleshooting steps and check whether it helps;
1. Check whether the issue persists with all the tapes. If the issue persists with a particular tape, the issue is with the tape. change the tape. 2. Check whether the battery is fully charged, 3. If the batteruy is nit fully charged, connect the Camcorder to the wall outlet using the supplied AC adaptor. 4. Then, reset the Camcorder by pressing the RESET button using a sharp-pojnted object while it is turned ON.

HDR-HC1 power keeps cycling


I had this exact problem, and the cycling would stop after about 30 sec. and then function properly. I believe a circuit was confused, mainly because I used an older battery and let it run out till the batt was dead - accidently - and when I put in a fresh batt, it no longer cycled and works perfectly to this day.

Now if I can get my computer to recognize the camera via firewire, I'd be golden.
