Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC3 HDV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Video breaks up

During playback my video images often break up and then will drop out altogether. There is no hint that this is happening during recording. It's completely random but seems to happen when the lighting is low. I can't tell if it's the camera or the tape. Cleaning the heads doesn't seem to help.

What we do at work is run a tape in ff and rw that has been recorded with completely and then use a soft head cleaning tape for twenty secs if that doesnt work then it needs to go in for repair.

I just changed the breaks on my 2004 optra 5 ls and there are still spungy? What could be the problem?


Hi,

Most likely cause is air in the break lines. This can happen if the break lines are not bled during the break job. If you did bleed the lines during the job you may be low on break fluid. If the fluid level is OK then you should bleed the breaks again, making sure the fluid level stays high.

Maybe you had the same problem as I did... the unit may have been dropped or mishandled during shipping or maybe during installation. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, try this:

I took mine to a technician that went through the settings, found nothing wrong, except for the fact that it won't play video. What he did afterward was open the unit up and checked out inside. Apparently there was just some little plug that got loose and/or fell off inside. This probably happened during shipping or could have happened if someone dropped the unit I guess. Anyway he re-plugged the little plug inside and it worked fine. I'm still to pick it up and test it myself but this is what I was told today so just thought I'd share it with you guys. Maybe that's what you need to get done.

Please note that if your unit is under warranty (like mine WAS), this would pretty much void it.

VHS play back


I am having the same split screen black and white problem. I don't think anything simple will fix this. I have looked into the unit and almost all the video processing happens on one little PC board under the DVD. I think that the capacitors on the bottom of this board are at fault, as there have been MANY noted failures of Panasonic Professional DVC decks due to these type capacitors failing.

Distorted pixelated image on right side


pixelation on the right side is an indication of misalignment of the exit roller.  don't try to align it yourself unless you're experienced in this repair.

Breaks in audio


The receiver is not locking on the digital audio on the HDMI. Try a different cable or sat box if you use one. Use a digital audio cable instead of the HDMI to the reveiver. HDMI is full of issues.
