Sony DCR-SR290 camcoder- turns off abruptly

Hi, within few seconds after ternig on, my sony DCR-SR290 camcoder turns off abruptly with a few blinking on the screen even though the battery is fully charged. The built in lens cover does not close either. Also few months ago the LCD screen became yellowish permanently. I will be grateful if you can provide me any solution.

How do I fix error code E61?


No need of any special solution. I had the same issue/error message with my DCR-DVD01 - Sony camcoder which is now 9 years old.

What i did is the following? (weird steps):

1. Turn on the sony camcoder - while connected to wall power
source.
2. Keep a heavy cloth on top of your dinner table or kitchen island.
3. Hold the camcoder facing up in the regular way as you try to
record a new video.
4. Hold on the front of the camcoder & at the back and gently tap
on the heavy cloth (as if you are going to smash it & break it).
5. Do this 3 times.
6. Shut down the camcoder.
7. Restart the camcoder after 3-5 seconds.
Thats it.
This worked for me.

The vision is blury and it keeps flashing E:61:10


E:61:10 is a lens error code. Could be a connection issue between the lens and the main board or a bad lens. You will need to have this looked at by an experienced technician. www.austintelstarservices.com

Trouble with camcoder


It is tape mechanism problem in camcorder related with take-up reel sensor signals.
Qualified camera tech can fix it because it is not user level repair/ fix.
