Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV615 Camcorder

Sony ccd-trv615, camcorder won't focus, I need to zoom to focus

I have a problem with this fairly old Sony CCD-TRV615 camcorder. When I turn on the power, initially no picture comes up on either display (only a blue screen with the various symbols, HI-8, STBY, etc.) After about 10 second, the video then comes up but the error code: E:61:00 flashes in the upper right of the view finder. At this point the picture is blurry, the zoom is all the way zoomed in, and I have to zoom out in order to focus the camera. (there are in fact two focus points, one zoomed in at about 18x, and one focus point at about 1x). I am able to record, which is great, but I'd really love to fix the focus on it.

Any ideas of what I should do? Does it have something to do with the focus motor or as someone suggested, the capacitor for the focus motor?

Many thanks!

in this case the camera doesn't have a usb for direct conection to the pc. you need a video card with video in it will have a yellow RCA conection. and you will need a program like BLAZE MEDIA PRO, using this method you will strem the video to the pc in real time . it means you havto use the RCA cable you use to plug the camcorder to the TV, connect the yellow color to the back of pc if you have the proper video input. for the audio you will need a 3.5mm cable (like headphone jack) it end in female RCA (RED - WHITE) this will go to the headphone input, or to the line in. depending on the pc.
IF you dont have a video card with video in, you need a Video Capture card.( it will have the 3 RCA conections) and it will include software to record from camera to pc.

let say you were able to connet the camera using any of the two options.
it is time to run Blaze media pro. this is all in one video application, you will have 30 days free trial period, if you like it i will recommend to get it. anyway, after you start the program it will have an option on the right side MORE VIDEO OPTIONS. click on it and it will show you get video from. and it will show you the video from the camcorder.
rewind, press play on camcorder and press record on pc and it will record the video in REAL TIME, like you just to do it in a VCR

After plugging charger into wall plug battery charging signal just flashes it does not charge. Battery is new.


This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My camcorder can play old tapes but won't record


Hi,
Your camcorder Sony DCR-HC20E has bad ccd imager problem and that part will be replaced to have live view to record on tape.
I can provide you ccd imager part number info if you want to repair it by yourself.
CCD Imager replacement in this camcorder requires expertise and fair skills of soldering parts in PCB.

Movie transfer


hey emron,

this usually happens if you dont have a driver for that cam in your laptop. as long as your laptop doesnt recognize you cam, try jumping from one usb port to another. when the new hardware wizard appears, this will help you to connect that to your system.
