This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Use sony dcr-sr40 as webcam


unfortunately for this model, it would not be possible to be use as a webcam. it uses HDD as its recording media. it may actually work if you have:
1.an a/v capture card installed in your computer that connects to the a/v jack of the camcorder.
2.a webcam application software that supports a/v connection
basically,you would need a camcorder that that has a usb streaming feature and a computer that has an OS that supports it (i.e win xp),or you can use ilink (dv or ieee1394) connection So you should be using a digital-8 or dv camcorder.it works perfectly as a webcam.of course, your webcam software should be designed to work with whatever connection your using.hope this info helps.tnx:)

Using sony dcr-sr36 as a webcam


Unfortunately is not possible directly - Your cam do not support USB streaming... But You may use any cheap video capture device like Pinnacle Studio movie box or similar to connect Your camera via S-video cable because Your camera has an analog output. Only one requirement - the capture card must have an S-video input or simply RCA video input. It's easy - connect video out and audio out of Your cam to the capture device and then connect USB of capture device to Your computer.
Good luck!

Sony dcr-sr40 will not connect with my pc for video download


In my opinion, connecting jack between camera and docking is creating problem, might be one or more pins are not connecting properly. Give a close look on both male-female jack pins.
