Vx 2000 lens out of focus and memory stick reader problems

I dropped my camera. It works on close ups, but when I zoom out, it loses focus. Also the memory stick reader does not recognize the memory stick. Whenever I switch to photo, the camera reads "no memory stick."

DCR PC 105 was dropped. Now auto focus only works on a limited range of the zoom lens. Can't go wide or too close. Is there a way to fix/replace the lense or auto focus? Does the lens easily come out?

The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

The zoom button isn't working and therefore when looking through the lens everything is blurry

Follow the instructions below to check and test the focusing of the camcorder.
Manual Focus
✤ In the following situations, you may obtain better
results by adjusting the focus manually.
a. A picture containing several objects, some close to the
Camcorder, others further away.
b. A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow.
c. Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car.
d. People or objects moving constantly or quickly
like an athlete or a crowd.
1. Set the [Power] switch to [CAMERA].
2. Set the [Mode] switch to [TAPE] or [CARD].
(SC-D375(H)/D975 only)
3. Press the [Q.MENU] button.
 Quick menu list will appear.
4. Press the up/down arrow button to select <Focus>, then
press the [OK] button.
5. Press the up/down arrow button to select <Manual>, then
press the [OK] button.
6. To exit, press the [Q.MENU] button.
 The [MF] icon and the [MF/AF] status bar will be
displayed on the LCD screen.
7. Press the up/down arrow button to adjust the focus.
[ Note ]
Manual Focus is not available in the EASY.Q mode.

Make sure the lens is clean--use a soft cloth and don't press hard when wiping--use a circular motion starting from the center of the lens and working to the outside--that way, you wont grind dirt into the glass. If the lens is dirty enough, the camera will actually try to focus on the smudge or finger prints on the lens! Look into the lens and use the zoom button--do the interior lenses move forward and backward? The zoom button could be damaged(liquid or impact), or the lens could be jammed due to impact or liquid( I just fixed my sister-in-law's unit--had cola in it and sugar acts like super glue when dry.)(Lenses jam due to excess heat, too) NEVER leave a camcorder in a hot car. The grease used to enable the parts to move freely and smoothly can flow to sensitive areas and stick like glue.
If the focusing is indeed stuck, the unit must be repaired at a reputable facility. Don't send it in through a retail store unless under warranty.--Hope I was of help.---Rick

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.

E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.

Losing focus

Usually this is a back focus problem; also called a flange back adjustment.  If the back focus adjustment is possible on this camera, zoom out wide - open iris all the way - and adjust focus and lock position.

Lens failing to function properly

Possibility is two. 1. If the lens contact to the body is not good so make sure the contacts are clean and position is locked completely. 2. 90% of the solution comes from repair on Main circuit in the lens. Good Luck. For further assistance go to James.
