Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV33 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My video screen is scrambled and looks like the nightshot is on. It is green and black in color. It does change the brightness when nightshot is on. It started last Christmas while I was using it. It was clear then after turning it off and back on it started do this. I have once been able to get it to turn on clear again but it was just turning off and on. When I record it plays back scrambled but if I playback a previous recorded tape it plays back clear.
Thanks in advance.
I ALWAYS use sony tapes for my camcorder, but had exactly the same problem- the 'nightshot' type effect just appeared out of the blue. the best thing to do to solve this problem is to firmly SMACK the camera with the palm of your hand- firmly- on its side. i swear i'm not kidding- this REALLY works. Read this on another site searching for a solution, though my lcd was also showing a c32 error or something along the lines.
