Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV38 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The other day I was recording a stage production for a local theater group and halfway through Act II my video turned greenish and was extremely jumpy when it came to the anything to do with light (in this case the actors on stage). I turned the camera off and played around with it until it went away. It reoccured the last 30 seconds of the show (which was them singing at the conclusion of the show). When the curtain closed, it continued though not as bad since the theater spotlights were turned off and the regular house lights were brought up.
Can someone please help me figure out what happen (I have 2 more nights to try to record the show)? I think my camera might of overheated, though that is only a theory. It is not the tape since I after I stopped recording the problem was still there.
Is the green color apparent in the recording if played back on something other that the camcorder? If it's simply there in viewer (ccd) then you might want to know that Sony is more than aware of ccd problems with that unit and there is an active recall on that cam.
You can call Sony at 1-866-703-7669 and if they determine that the ccd is the problem they will even send you a prepaid shipping lable...
If the color variation is also there in the recording - played back on something other than the camcorder - then the optic sensor, logic board or something else is the culprit.
