Question about Sony Video Cameras

How do you remove the NIGHTSHOT PLUS writing & other icons on the Viewfinder/LCD screen without turning off Nightshot plus?

My old Sony DCR-DVD92E PAL camcorder is working well as a night scope however the NIGHTSHOT PLUS writing across the Viewfinder/LCD screen is quite a distraction. Is there a way of getting a totally clear screen i.e no icons or, at the very least, removing NIGHTSHOT PLUS? The camera owes me nothing so I'm happy to disassemble if it'll get me a clear screen.

If you really feel up to it the thing has screws, start opening them and take of the plastic cover. But think 4 times before messing with a 400 $ camera, maybe you'd rather take it to a lab, shouldn't be too expensive. There's many things that can go wrong if you do it yourself Good luck

If you shot the videos in dark with night shot on. There is no way to convert them to look like day. But if you use a editing program like Sony Vegas you would be able to tweek the video to look simi normal.

This is the solution, I would only add that it's on the top of the camera itself. Not in the digital menu or backlight button. On my older version, it's between the cassette and lens sections of the camera. 
Never having used the nightshot before, my sister left me with the same quandary...

Can't turn off nightshot on my handycam help!!!


Option 1:

Using the NightShot:

1. First Set the POWER Switch to Camera, Slide NIGHTSHOT to ON.

2. The NIGHTSHOT indicators flash on the screen.

3. To cancel the NightShot mode, Slide NIGHTSHOT to OFF.


Option 2:

1. Let us try to reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

2. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

3. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the "all white screen" in daylight problem, check to make sure the "Nightshot Plus" slider switch is set on "off."
