Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV140E Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Camera mode recording/displaying right

When in camera mode my LCD screen and through the view finder images on screen appear so badly distorted that you can barely see what's in the shot. Sometimes screen goes to complete black with flickering as well.

What is the model number? if it's 10 years or older you are most likely dealing with bad surface mounted capacitors.

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.

My sony cyber shot DSC F717 digital camera has a problem. when turned on, no images on the screen. as well in the view finder.


This problem could be a number of things.
Does it allow you to have any access to the menus? If you can get to the menus, try setting the menus to default settings. Test the camera after setting the menus to default.

Can the camera play back images or videos and show on the screen? If they can be seen, then possible some setting is not right.
If you cannot see images when in recording mode try the play back mode and see if you can see any images in the lcd.
If you cannot see any images in either play back or record mode, and no menus, then the camera needs to be repaired.

If you can see images when you play back, and none when in record mode, then the ccd is suspected to be defective. If that is so, call Sony, give them your camera model and serial to see if they can repair the camera. The status will have to be determined by Sony repair.
