Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC109 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Display is dark

The display on my Sony Handycam DCR-PC109 is dark. Its not on nightshot or supernightshot, and its not on backlight. The viewfinder works correctly, and it records normally. Its just that I can barely see on the display what I am recording outside, and inside - forget it.

Is there a factory reset? This might solve the problem since its otherwise working fine.

I checked the manual (on Sony's website), and couldn't find a solution.

TIA

The C31 indicates that there is a motor movement problem. I don't have the manual handy at the moment, but the :23 will indicate which movement is having the problem. This is not typically a DIY repair. I woul d strongly suggest that you check the fixed repair cost from a Sony authorized service center. This will not only repair the unit, but also reset it back to factory specifications.

I'll look up the error code tonight and try to update this.

This is the solution, I would only add that it's on the top of the camera itself. Not in the digital menu or backlight button. On my older version, it's between the cassette and lens sections of the camera.
