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!

DCR-HC96 Automatic Lens Cover won't open


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Lens Cover will not open or close


OMG! I had the same issue and blew on the lens. To easy to be true, but it worked! I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I turned the camcorder on and off several times, and it worked every time! Sure beats the $341 Sony was going to charge to fix it!!!!

Lens Cover


The micro motor broke in the dust cover that opens and closes the cover. If your camcorder is still operational then I would not worry too much. Only when you can not get pass the error messages to operate then you will need to get a new one from sony (~$50). If you are mecahnically sound to take apart small things otherwise, take it to a professional.
