Re: LCD image upsidedown

There is a switch on the LCD pivot that detects which way the LCD is being viewed from. Check this switch.

How do I get the sony handycam dcr-hc30ntsc to show me a pictuer wale recording or any thing

If camcorder does not show live view in view finder and lcd screen but shows good picture in play back of old recorded tapes then ccd imager chip is defective in camcorder and need to be replaced.
It is not user level repair as soldering work is needed to replace ccd imager chip.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Dear sir my sony Handycam model DCR-TRV285E,

Look at the rear end of the tape cass and if the red tag is over the hole this prevents movies being erased, just push tag over to expose the hole and your tape will (should) be okay and work again.
Be aware that if you pressed this tag over to stop recording, are you sure nothing is on tape you want to keep?

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.

Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.

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