Question about Sony HDRHC9 Mini DV Camcorder

Jittery image after around 10 minutes of operation

Hi, I've got this Sony HDRHC9 and the image starts to jitter after 10 minutes of operation. I found out that if I tilt the camera 90 degrees clockwise, the image becomes clear. But when it returns to its upright position, the jittering returns. Could there be a loose wiring somewhere? The flexcable perhaps

From the sounds of it, there is a hardware fault that you should have a repairman examine. If you wish to try and gather more information on the issue, you could try checking the user manual:

Hi,
i don't think it would be a loose wiring, because you said it comes after a certain time of use and only in one position, it must be a over heating of the sensor that says to the processor in witch position is the cam, or a bad calibration...
did you try to do a reset?
try to reset the cam without moving it from a plane surface parallel to the ground.
if that doesn't work you'll have to send it for repair
cheers

SOURCE: sony hdr-cx7 image jitters when the cam gets hot

one fix is turning off steadyshot then try putting the camcorder upright(the lens pointing up) for few second until you see the video stabilize, then use as normal but the camcorder will jitter again if handle it roughly. This is just a workaround, i still dont know why it happens, need to send it for repair soon.

Bugaboo Bee Front Wheel Jitters


The Bugaboo Bee gets a lot of complaints about the front wheels flapping around causing a jittery ride. Their have been reports of the strollers wheels turning 90 degrees and stopping the stroller dead! There is a simple fix. Just unclip the front wheels and fit a rubber washer over the metal post the wheel clips on to. I have heard of rubber bands being used! All you are doing is adding a bit of extra friction making the front wheel turning action more predictable.

I cured the problem by placing a fan in front of the screen that not only blows directly on the LCD screen, but also air underneath the screen providing circulation around the entire unit. Apparently the LCD screen is overheating causing it to "trip". I can stop the blower after about 20 minutes and there is no problem.

I will never buy another Westinghouse product again as long as I live.
