SOURCE: unable to record.

Hi,

To my understanding, this is a known/common issue with this particular brand/model. It would seem that the CCD is defective. Further, I believe Sony is repairing it as a settlement of some sort.

Am not sure if still covered, but you can try (866) 703-7669, or go to www.sony.com/ccdservice.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like its fried, there is probably not a fix for the problem that will not cost more than the camcorder.It could be the power converter on the device, a voltage regulator or capacitor might have gone thus cutting power the certain parts of the device like the screen and CCD.

If you are qualified to open the Camcorder then you can follow what I am going to say. The most important thing is to have the right precision screwdrivers so that you can open the side of the camera that has the LCD screen. The problem with it most likely to be the socket that goes to the LCD screen inside the camcorder that is no longer connecting properly so that you have to put it back an seal it with some reinforcing tape. if you are not sure on how to do this please tell me so that I can send you instructions and the pictures to show you how it's done.

The power up problem perhaps can be solved by replacing the clock battery that is under the view finder arm. Move the arm to get at the small battery draw and replace the CR2025 button battery.

Vidio recorder when i record it wont play back what is recorded but it will play pre recorded tapes Is it campatable for LG television please model no VR550/07


If it plays back pre recorded tapes then there is nothing wrong with that section of the unit. Does it playback audio and not picture or does it not playback anything.
Also, when trying to playback a recording what is seen of the screen? Snow(black and white dots or wiggly picture?

The unit uses two separate circuits to record and playback tapes. Is any thing else connected to the unit while you are recording? If you are using anything plugged into other ports on the recorder it may not see the camera input causing it to not record anything..

Sound but no picture.


if you are able to playback previously recorded cassette and the picture is perfect then its not the head. then the problem is with the image grabbing section i.e. the CCD. May be its damaged and needs replacement.

LCD won't project


You may have a problem with the image sensor device (CCD). From October 3, 2005 through October 2, 2007, Sony will repair, free of charge, affected products exhibiting the above-mentioned problem where it is caused by the image sensor device. Sony will also cover the cost of shipping and handling from and to addresses within the United States and US Territories for service to correct this issue. To see if you have this problem: Power On your camcorder (make sure the battery is fully charged). Check the LCD screen and verify that the display icons are turned on. If you cannot see the icons, press the Display button until the icons are visible. Put a tape in the camcorder. With the lens cap off, record some video. NOTE: Be sure to speak during the recording so the video will contain your voice. Rewind this section of the tape (using tape counter to verify start of your recording). Play back the recorded video and use the LCD screen on the camcorder to view it. You should hear the audio you recorded and the Display icons/text will still appear. If your camcorder is affected by this CCD issue, the picture will either be extremely distorted, or there will be no visible picture (just a blank LCD screen with the display icons still visible).
