Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
My camcorder suddenly stopped working. it will play back videos but when I try to record, you don't have any picture at all. I tried to reinsert a new tape but had the same result
CCD sensor problem ( that you can play back but have no image in capture mode is typical of this common problem ). Sony might do this repair free of charge because properly manufactured CCD sensor should last 10 years+ .

Tips for a great answer:
This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
