A common problem in the Sony camcorders is a stuck iris assy, the part of the lens assembly that regulates the light coming into the camera. It sounds like that is the problem with your camcorder. It can be verified by zooming your lens out and it and shining a light into the lens to see it you can actually see the CCD at the back of the lens. It helps if you know what you're looking for, but if all you see is black, then the iris is stuck closed and you will need a qualified tech to look at the unit. Please, if this information has answered your question, I would appreciate a good rating. Thanks!

I had same problem. Got lucky and found Westpeak Electronic
Services in Calgary, AB in Sept 2009. I left it there, they replaced and aligned the ccd imager free of charge and mailed it to me a week later. I live in British Columbia.
Their number is 866-410-Sony
Hope this helps

You have two options, replace the motor that opens and closes the lens cover or remove the lens cover shutters all together, and use a 30mm lens cap.
