Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I bought a lens hood for my dcr-vx2000 with a 58mm radius size. But, it doesn't fit. Everyone I've talked to and even the manual showed this is the size I am supposed to get. I saw that my lens says 72mm. Should I have gotten a 72mm lens hood for it to fit properly? I didn't see that in any manual i looked at...all said 58mm, but that is too small for my camera.
The VX2000 lens does have a 58mm diameter thread for filters etc. The 72mm refers to the focal range (Zoom) from 6mm to 72mm. The 58mmm lens hood should fit, but I strongly suggest you obtain a SONY OEM lens hood with lens cap. Goto http://www.pro-cam-electronics.com or other professional camcorder sites for these items.

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling camera to remove the lens block and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
