Re: Everything on the TV works EXCEPT live TV.
Please clarify a few things. Are you using cable TV, satellite TV or a TV antenna? If cable, are you using a set top box (and is it powered on) or does the TV convert the cable info. If satellite, is the set top box powered on? If off the air (antenna TV), can the TV receive the new digital signals and if not, do you have a digital converter box between the antenna and the TV?

Are you still having problems recording live TV shows? You can try unplugging the receiver from the power outlet for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will make the receiver reboot and then acquire satellite signal. Once the acquisition is complete, a program guide download will take place. Allow the download and see if the receiver will allow you to record.
If it doesn't, then run a check switch test. Press your menu button to bring up the main menu. Press 6, 1, and 1 on the remote which will take you to the Point Dish screen. Upper right hand corner of TV screen is a button, "Check Switch". Maneuver to that button and select. You will now be at the "Installation Summary" screen. At the bottom of screen, select "Test" button. Allow the test to run. After completing, it will automatically take you back to installation summary screen. Check for any errors windows. Exit completely out of all menus till you are back to "Acquiring Satellite Signal". Allow program guide download after acquisition, then check if you can record.
If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.
And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
To my understanding that you do not see live view in camera mode to record and camcorder playback old recorded tapes correctly and you get picture in LCD. If it is true then please check lens cover that need to be slide down to get live view in camera mode. If problem still exist then 2 possibilities, either aperture in lens mechanism is bad or ccd imager is defective. In that problem, camcorder needs qualified tech to fix it. Let me know any further query.
Couple of questions, Is it Sony DCR-TRV22 camcorder? please confirm model number. Can you see fine and clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes in camcorder? Let me know info to proceed. Thanks.
