Sony handy cam stuck on night mode

I don't have this camera, so I can't tell you how to change the setting, but on most electronics, if you take out the battery, and leave it out for an hour (with no power cable attached), they go back to their original settings, so this would likely get you out of the night mode.

You can also see if there is any info on the Sony site .
You could also ask on one of the may forums on the net...
Good luck!

How to change the voice mail message on KP DCS - 24B LCD samsung

I have the manual for the DCS series and there is no help regarding this.
It does say how to turn from auto to manual and make sure that the time is correct.
1. If the manual NIGHT key is pressed BEFORE the system automatically enters night service then the automatic night service timer tables will be overriden until the system is manually restored to day mode.
2. If AFTER the system automatically enters the night service tables and will not be overriden.

Can I record from my Viewcam onto a VHS cassette?

Yes you can! The most important step when dubbing from 8 millimeter to VHS, is setting the VCR that the unit is being hooked to, to the Auxiliary Mode. We suggest consulting the operator manual for your VCR for the instructions on how to set that.

I can't get a picture on my television when I have my Viewcam connected into my VCR.

Make sure the Viewcam is connected (cable supplied) to an A/V input on your VCR. Set your VCR to the Line In or Auxiliary mode. Turn the Viewcam to Camera or VCR mode if playing back tape. Viewcam image should appear, if not call 1-BE-SHARP.
