CC311 viewfinder/CCD problem

This camcorder was working (after not being used for two years), but I turned it off to use the next day and the image in the viewfinder became distorted then went blank. Turned it off and tried again later that day - same result. Now the display won't even come on - which means the CCD Board, or the ribbon cable to Mother Board, Or.... is bad/not making a good connection? Very hard to find any information from RCA/Thomson Consumer Electronics concerning this issue. I do have the Service/Repair manual, but can't find any repair center to do the work. Most centers just say throw it away and buy a newer Camcorder. I don't like that option

SOURCE: GSV 15 issue, PC is not able to recognize the DV port, unable to transfer video to PC

I had this happen to one of my Panasonic cameras, fortunately i had another camera i used for the capture process.

BUT get a magnifying glass and look at the camera firewire socket. Most firewire connect problems comes from a
"bent pin" in that socket. Otherwise it is off to the repair guy I am afraid.

If you have X P you install a firewire in your p.c.hook up camera switch to play then open moviemaker the p.c.will recognise the camera moviemaker is better than j.v.c. software.

SOURCE: LCD screen not working on my Sony Hc 42 camcorder

Hi
The LCD cable is faulty. You need to replace the LCD cable from SONY authorised service center.

It's a common problem as this cable is bend each time when we open the LCD screen, so the cable become faulty.

When recording, no picture thru viewfinder or lcd panel. Records sound. Was working fine, just started this, and the lens cap is off. Any assistance greatly appreciated.


It could be either aperture is stuck or ccd imager chip is defective in your camcorder that will be replaced.
In bright light, look into camera lens, turn ON in camera mode and observe does aperture open like an eye?
If you notice some thing opens right in center of camcorder lens then aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad that will be replaced.
Let me know model number of your Sony camcorder to provide you ccd imager part number info.
Thanks.

Records sound but no picture


there are two possible problem of your camera...one check the iris of the camera if it is opening,you will see it went you look inside the lens when you turn on camera mode....and if you see that the iris is opening...the second may be the ccd image sensor......if that is the problem you have no choice but to go the sony service for replacing the ccd image sensor...
