Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR200 Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony DCR-SR200 screen is very dim and camera turns itself off.

Camera working fine one day and next day the screen is very dim with no color. At first I couldn't even tell is was working at all. I moved the screen around some and it brightened with color to normal appearance. Then it wen dim again. Then the camera turned itself off. I turned it on and it had the same dim screen. I move it and it brightened. I used the camera for a few minutes and it became dim again and the camera turned itself off again. After this, every time I tried to turn it on, it turned itself off within a few seconds. Purchased camera May of 2007. Not a big video user, so only limited number of hours of working time in the past 2 years. Sony wants $271 to repair the camera. This is 1/2 the price of a similar technology camera today! What's up with Sony products,? Are they no longer making reliable cameras?

    My camera is doing the exact same thing now. Today is the first day that it just stopped working. As soon as I turn it on, it turns it self back off like 3 seconds later. I loved this camera and bought mine in May of 2007. It has been out of the extended warranty for 6 months and now it dies on me. Go figure.... did you ever get yours fixed?

    I have the exact same camera and mine decided that today it was going to stop working. I will turn the camera on and 3 seconds later, it turns itself off. I bought my camera in May of 2007. Of course, my extended warranty ran out 6 months ago, go figure. Did you ever find a solution to fix the camera?

My Eiki lc-xb33 is projecting the image from my computer very dimly. Although the image is in focus, it is very difficult to see the image at all because it is so dim. Even the blue start up screen is...


You need to remove the cover and check where the lamp light is being attenuated in the optical path from the lamp to the front lens. I would try using a 12volt 50W halogen lamp in place of the real lamp and shine it into the optics system, and see where the brightness starts to go bad.

Calculator won't do anything. Screen won't even come on and I replaced all the batteries. Worked fine one day and then wouldn't work the next day


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible. Does that do anything?

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.

LCD screen went black


No. It is likely that there is still water in it. It's very important that you take the battery out and do not try to use it. Take it to a repair shop and be SURE to tell them it had water in it so they can take the appropriate steps to clean and protect it.

Horizontal Lines and smeared color


No its not a cheap repair Renee, please don't invest your hard earned money into an old 32". If you can buy a newer LCD or Plasma set. LCD's are cheaper and have the smaller sizes that you may want.
