SOURCE: Sony TRV-19 Camcorder - Black screen in camera mode

Fixed it, at least temporarily I had the side off my trv250 examining it, especially the CCD connection. I had read the post about soldering a capacitor to pins 1 and 3 (from the left) on the bottom row. I didn't have the specific capacitor on hand, but I started touching some of the small ones I did have to those pins. I found that after I touched a 100uF, 10V cap to pins 1 and 3 the picture suddenly came back to life and stayed that way after removing the cap. I have no idea how long this will last, and I've set up the cam on a tripod in the livingroom with the LCD display facing me so I can monitor it. If you, like me, figure you have nothing else to lose, you might want to give this a try. Note: my camera was suffering from the green smeary horizontal lines problem, and wasn't completely black. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.

SOURCE: lens cover not open and blank screen

the problem of your camera is the ccd image sensor...better go to the sony service center for replacing the image sensor..i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is one of the model that sony recall produc and the cover not open error message is a poor contact of the lens cover switch...

50p/60p Converter-Transcode CX360 MTS to ProRes for FCP X Editing


Merge/Edit Sony CX360V 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD to ProRes 422(HQ)(*mov) on FCP X with Highest quality <br /><br />I used Sony HDR-CX360V to record 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files, which are not compatible with FCP X. So in order to edit the movies on FCP X, conversion from <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">MTS in 50/60 progressive mode to ProRes</a></b> is necessary. <br /><br />I've tried Clipwrap, Toast and Aunsoft to carry out the conversion. Clipwrap failed because it cannot export 50/60 progressive mode; Toast completed converting but the quality is badly affected. <br /><br />Only Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac successfully converted the 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 with no loss of quality. I really want to say that it is the best software to <b>Transcode Sony HDR-CX360V 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS footage for FCP X</b> that I've ever used. <br /><br />Here is the step-by-step guide to quickly <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/07/transcode-sony-cx360-50p60p-avchd-mts-footage-to-prores-422-hq-for-fcp-x-editing/">Convert/Edit Sony CX360 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 (*.mov) on FCP X</a></b>. <br /><br />1. Importing 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac <br />Use a USB cable to Connect Sony HDR-CX360V to Mac. Follow the popup window and wizard to complete the import. <br /><br />2. <b>Merging and converting 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files</b> to what you want. <br />After the MTS movies are imported, select one or several videos you would like to convert and then drag and drop them to Movies tab. You can choose the files to be joined as one whole, or create a single movie for each file. Then click the "set parameter" button. Choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) under Final Cut Pro as its output format and choose "50" (or 60) for the frame rate. <br /><br />3. Export Apple ProRes 422(HQ) for editing on FCP X <br />After setting the output format and frame rate, click the "Export" button and conversion from <b>1920x1080</b> 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files to Apple ProRes 422(HQ)(*mov) starts. <br /><br />After the conversion is completed, <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Import and Edit ProRes 422 (HQ) on FCP X</a></b>. <br /><br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />If you want to join/merge Sony HDR-CX360V AVCHD MTS clips and <b>play on WDTV Live with original quality</b>, you can use Aunsoft Final Mate to import MTS files and flawlessly export MKV without transcoding.

HDR-SR12 - LCD Touch screen very dim , screen works but almost completely dark. tried increased brightness etc no help


My camera's backlight went dark. Occasionally it would work if I pressed just the right way, but it was basically toast.

Search ebay for an HDR-SR11 or HDR-SR12 flex cable similar to this one:

http://r.ebay.com/L4dWDQ

It's not impossible to replace, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart. Some offer a replacement service with it. I'm doing mine myself. Results to follow, maybe, if I remember to post following the repair.

Sony HDR-HC3 LCD touchscreen blacked-out.


Hi, I have the same Problem with my HC3. This July the screen started to go funny and then now only works once its fully opend and flipped against the body. the touch screen did not work, As I had tapes to be transfered I needed to get the camera in to play mode and access the menu. I had no choice but to gentnly removed the LCD cover and tightend the connections and the touch screen now started to work. As I move the creen forward the image goes off and once? Looks like its a common problem as I see many having thesame issue. I feel it could be a loose connection inside but cant open and loose whats left working as it is still usable without the screen.
Thanks
