Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC7 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I dropped my camcorder. Picture shakes/buzz

When turned on camcorder gives off a buzzing sound and the picture shakes. At first, this was intermittent, however, 3 month later it is almost a constant problem rendering video unusable. In a local shop I was told that there is some sort of drive and the plastic casing maybe cracked. Any idea for repair? Greatly appreciate any advice-Milan Skarka

Hi

It can be the problem with video processing unit of your Camera. It can also be the casing issue. However for that you'll need to check what might be the case. If you have jewellers toolbox and have disassembled any camcoder before then you can check the camcoder yourself. Here is a link to free service manual for your Camcoder---

I turn the tv on and there is a constant buzzing sound what is it?


Hello
If the picture is correct in all resepect, and only a buzzing sound only comes from its inside circuit, it will be due to a loose core fittings, on any one or two ferrite cored transformers inside the power supply sytem. There are transformeres of small and large types, both in power supply and other boards. We have to find out which transformer makes this buzz sound during working. For this, you have to open your TV, and power it ON, and listen the the sound carefully, and detect the transformer which makes this noise. After finding the exact one, this loose core contact can be fixed with the help of Super Glue or similar fast acting adhesive. Just put three or four drops of adhesive in between the core will rectify your problem.
If there is no picture at all and a buzzing sound like this is heard from your TV, the inside circuit has some short in it and has to be detected and rectified. OK>

NO PICTURE OR SOUND


The buzz is the power supply attempting to power the set. The click is the unit shutting down. Can you pleae post the make and model as well as whether or not the standby light is blinking? With that info we should be able to give you some options.

Thanks,

No picture and buzzing sound on Sony XBR Wega


Is the bulb light flashing ? - Sony's bulb light is very accurate in telling you if the bulb is bad. The buzzing sound could be from the balist trying to strike the lamp. You also may want to open the lamp door and see if the bulb is shattered.
