Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I get a "texture" on the image

The camera was fine, I hadn't used it in eight months or so. Now that I needed to record something, I put in in tape mode, and the image it's getting looks as if it had a scratched texture on it, and a thin black line that moves horizontally across the screen and the part above that line looks gray. The camera hadn't been dropped or hit, so I have no idea of whats wrong with it.

    Thank you for your solution, you're right.



    The problem was when I took the camera to the service center as they told me in Sony. They started inventing needed reparations in my camera "to avoid future problems" so they would be able to charge me with a lot of money,  even though the reparation was supposed to be free because it was a manufacture defect.

Hi,

I just found a website that says they will fix it for free within the U.S.  The site is http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?mdl=DCRHC30&news_id=161

My camera did the same thing and I went to Sony service online and they pointed me to this site. 

Good luck,
