Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I just bought this camera from an auction. Camera turns on fine and everything seems to be working except the LCD screen and viewfinder both dispalys everything in Green color. I tried to change filters, set white balance, change digital effects but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks sam
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
