This camera model has been recalled for this problem, contact Sony for instructions on how to send it back. It is a CCD malfunction.

Almost sounds like it's in night shot mode, but I don't think to 2000 has that. sometimes during shipping the board to board connectors may have come loose. I would check for a loose one off the 3 ccd assembly. Thats a pretty good unit you have there, worth looking into. be carefull taking it apart there is a some 4 pin ribbon cable that can rip, just take it slow. I work on alot of these. they are a workhorse.

I have a JVC JY-HD10U video camera and it is from a surplus auction house. My problem is the unit displays light sources as green blobs or lines, and everything else is black. I know its not a problem...

Okay. One of my higher end Video camera's got the same problem after I filmed a gorgeous sunset for several minutes. Pointing at the sun for the extended time fried the camera lens and the sensors. (I knew better, but the beauty of the sunset made me a little crazy, and I just kept filming it.)

I called the camera company (in my case it's Sony), sent it in, and they are fixing and refurbishing the camera. It will be in "like new" condition when it comes back. The repair for mine is over $200 (closer to $300, actually).. but is well worth the investment, and I expect to have good performance from it for several more years, as opposed to spending a few thousand to replace it.

I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.

It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
