Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV740E Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Parts of image missing, why?

My SONY DCR-TRV740E (PAL) camcorder has suddenly started to band the pictures. Even the old previously working tapes give similar large gray stripes on the image. And they are stable, not moving and pretty sharp edged. I have not tried the recorded tapes in other systems yet, but I suppose this is only playback problem.

The type of image is available on http://www.munkuvat.org/thumb/736.jpeg

Is it goodby to this camera?

I don't know about the PAL version, but the NTSC version does. It automatically detects the type of tape and adjusts.

Thank you for your support and patronage of Sony Camcorders.

It has recently come to our attention that a limited number of Sony Camcorders that incorporate an image sensor device, CCD Chip, manufactured from October 2002 through March 2004 may exhibit the following condition:


When the Camcorder is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder will show either a distorted image or no image.


We have determined that this condition only occurs to a limited number of units.


In its effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony has elected to offer a free repair to the owners of applicable Camcorders if the image sensor device, CCD chip, causes one of the above-mentioned conditions. Accordingly, customers who have a Sony Camcorder as outlined below and if such Sony Camcorder exhibits the above-mentioned condition caused by the image sensor device, CCD chip, may contact the special call center number below for free repair:
