Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD200 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Camera is not operating

Hi, While I was trying to take a photo, suddenly the picture is frozen and the camera started to try to read the disc with no success. Though I turned off the camera, it is still open and trying to open the cover. I could not open the cover, and turn off the camera with normal ways. What should I do? Thanks for your help in advance. Regards, Serap

SOURCE: Camera powers up but lens cover fails to open

It could be some grit or sand causing the lens cover to not open, so the camera won't initialize. Try cutting a slip of paper narrow enough to slide between the lens opening frame and the lens cover. Move it in and out to clear any grit that might cause the spring-loaded cover to bind. Good luck !

SOURCE: Turn on the camera, cover lens is closed even though i already pull it down

if you open up your casing you will find that almost dead center on the front PCB, just to the right of the battery at the top of the empty battery area there is a box. possibly with some plastic fragment that is broken off. if you touch inside this box w/ something conductive it will think the lens is open. You can either fix this area or permanently solder it so it thinks it is always open. You can still turn it off using the button on the side of the camera

SOURCE: Lens Cover not fully open

It sounds like a problem with the firmware in the camcorder itself. As an authorized Sony repair person, I have gotten no technical bulletin on this model. The firmware is preloaded into the microprocessor IC. You will need to have this unit looked at by an authorized Sony repair center who specializes in camcorder repairs or send the unit to a Sony factory service center. good Luck

SOURCE: Access Probelm with DSC-W50 camera

I was having the exact same issue with my dsc-w55 and I followed the solution of another post from this site which was: "There is a problem internally with the lens. Likely, the focusing lens is jammed up. The lens will need to be disassembled and fixed, if possible, or replaced. Occasionally, a good "whack" in your hand can fix it. Just don't hit the lens, or lcd; or you can break them. Then there will be more damage." I gave it THREE good "whacks" in the palm of my hand, was careful not to hit the lens or LCD and VOILA! I just shot a few pics with my camera and so far so good. Good luck!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Says memory card full


Hello. If your memory card is full it's time to transfer some of your pictures to a computer or put them on a cd or dvd disc.if you have the cables to conect to a computer plug the camera into the computer and then turn the camera on. Depending on your operating system your computer may or may not see your camera.If it does you may see a window asking what you want to do , just read through and make your choice.If it doesn't right click the My Computer icon and see if it shows up there as a removable device if so try to open it,from there you can move pictures around to folders on the computer. If your computer doesn't find your camera at all you may need software from the camera company ,if you have a disc install it ,if you don't check the manufacturers web site for software.If the computer doesn,t work out most photo finishing stores can copy the pictures to a disc freeing up space on your card for more pictures.

Canon 40D upload photos - camera busy -


When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.

Digital rebel / SLR photos are nearly all black


If the camera still "operates normally" with recorded pictures while they are all black, you try to select CMOS Cleaning to see if the shutter really opens or not. If not, a plastic lever operates the first set of curtains had broken. This could be common for all plastic shutter except EOS 1 series which use metal.

Pentax option 430 camera problem


Bassie - did you resolve this? My computer recognizes the camera just fine. I have photos on my card but when I try to download to my computer, I don't see any photos. I've emailed Pentax several times w/ no help to this problem. Do you have automatic MS updates set on your machine? What Virus protection do you have? I've run into problems w/ another program conflicting w/ virus protection software.
