Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV22 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

DCR-TRV22 Sony handycam shows black screen when recording.

When inside and recording, the LCD and viewfinder are black, except for large sources of light. For example, everything will be black but I can still see a window, but distorted. When outside, it's completely black no matter what. I have tried looking at the settings and nothing has helped. The camera is somewhat old but it's been in perfectly fine working condition and one day I used after a long break from using it and it's been like this ever since. It would be great if you had a solution to my problem. Thanks!

    Yes it is a Sony DCR-TRV camcorder and I am still capable of viewing old recorded tapes just fine. It still records sound perfectly. Thanks for your time.

    OK, turn on camera while lens facing you and check IRIS opens? (its like an eye opens in center of lens)
    If yes, then CCD Imager is bad in camcorder and will be replaced.
    I can provide you ccd imager part number if you want to replace it yourself or take camcorder to local tv repair shop for fix.
    Thanks.

DCR-TRV22 Sony handycam shows black screen when recording.


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. 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.

Difficulty to record with a sony handycam dcr-trv22


is it able to record audio? are you able to see the indicators on the lcd screen? are you able to playback previous tapes with recording...if you say yes to all of the questions, there is no doubt that you dont have an issue with the lcd screen. the issue that your having is with the ccd imaging sensor. sony has a recall program for this specific model yrs back, unfortunately its already been discontinued and if you send it to them,it will be treated as an out-of-warranty repair.
