SOURCE: Sony DCR-TRV22E - no picture or sound on screen or viewfinder

I thought so. Do you have a DV tape cleaner?

There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram

With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.

My Nikon N75 has a black speck in the viewfinder. Does not affect the photos but drives me nuts. Is there a simple way to access and clean the viewfinder?


That depends on where in the viewfinder. If it's the reflex mirror, use a bulb blower to clean it. Don't touch it with anything, and down't use canned air. The underside of the viewscreen can be cleaned with a soft cloth or lens tissue moistened with ethanol or lens cleaner (be careful not to touch the mirror as you do this). The same with the eyepiece.

If it's in the penta-mirror system then it gets a lot harder. You'd have to take the top cover off the body to get to the penta-mirror. Before you try this yourself, consider this. Do you have the proper equipment to make sure everything is aligned properly when you put it back together? An unaligned viewfinder can drive you nuttier than a mere speck (believe me, I've had cameras like that).

If, after cleaning all the accessible sources, it's still driving you nuts, consider having a professional do the cleaning. It'll cost more, of course, but you're much likelier to have a working camera at the end of the process.

My scream is black with the cap off


Just to the right of the button that raises the flash is a button labelled |O| or similar, and this toggles between the screen and the viewfinder. You might have accidentally touched this and now get a black screen while the viewfinder will be displaying the pic you're about to take. Press once to toggle back and the screen should return to life.
Hope this helps.

Black viewfinder and screen


Most likely it is a mechanical failure such that the reflection mirror does not return back to its normal position, then blocking any light to the viewfinder.

Check this by unmounting the lens. If so, you may have to consider a repair operation.

Sony TRV-19 Camcorder - Black screen in camera mode


Fixed it, at least temporarily I had the side off my trv250 examining it, especially the CCD connection. I had read the post about soldering a capacitor to pins 1 and 3 (from the left) on the bottom row. I didn't have the specific capacitor on hand, but I started touching some of the small ones I did have to those pins. I found that after I touched a 100uF, 10V cap to pins 1 and 3 the picture suddenly came back to life and stayed that way after removing the cap. I have no idea how long this will last, and I've set up the cam on a tripod in the livingroom with the LCD display facing me so I can monitor it. If you, like me, figure you have nothing else to lose, you might want to give this a try. Note: my camera was suffering from the green smeary horizontal lines problem, and wasn't completely black. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.
