Consulted all Menu and Function options without success.
Dirt or grain of sand in the small gear box that drives closing and opening of lens cover. Remove front assy. and if you are brave dismantle gear box to clean out. Otherwise just blow without dismanling the gear box.

Tips for a great answer:
Sounds like a sensor problem - which happened recently to one of my own video cameras Called Sony, and they are replacing the lens and sensors and refurbishing the camera to like-new condition. Here is the number as listed on the Sony website: Priority Service Line (for U.S. only): 239-768-7547. Once through the maze of recorded menu options, and you get to Camcorder Repair service department, they will help you very efficiently. Hope this helps.

With your camcorder powered ON, and set to VCR / playback, there should show on the screen (viewer) something indicating "Menu" or a "FN" (Function) option. Select "Menu" (or Function icon to lead to the Menu). Check through the Menu options to find "Mode", and find the option for Normal Recording or playback, as opposed to "Test Mode", or "Demonstration Mode".
If this does not solve the problem, try this: Turn the camera OFF, remove camera battery, re-install battery, turn camera ON and see if that Re-set the camera. If not, it might be resolved by manually resetting the time and date. Then go to the Menu again to set Mode to normal recording or playback.
If those do not correct the problem, there is no shame in calling the camera company to speak with Tech-services. That's what they are there for.
