Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.
Thanks.

The camera has not been used for about 6 six years. every thing seems to work okay except it seems to be a in some kind of gray mode. there is no color looking through the view finder or when the recording...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, postback with the brand and model number of the camera.

Offhand, in some models there are setting for such modes. Have you tried checking the available selections?

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

No sound records sony dcrtrv530


I reviewed the owners manual to your camera.

On page 126 it says this:

1)The stereo tape is played back with HIFI sound set to 2 in the menu settings.
Set it to STEREO (see page 79)
2) The volume is turned to a minumum.
Press Volume + (see page 27)
3) Audio Mix is set to ST2 side in the menu settings.
Adjust the audio mix (see page 79)

If one of those 3 options doesn't work, try using an 8mm tape head cleaner.

DCR-DVD108 Problem


It's the disc not the camera......I purchased a 3 pack of Sony DVD-R discs. I put the first disc in and it recorded once. The next time I tried to record I got the message "movie recording disabled". After calling Sony, searching online, resetting the camera and reading through the manual I replaced the disc with another from the 3 pack and it is recording just fine. I read that recording straight to DVD has many problems, and I believe this is one of them. SONY SUCKS!!!!!

It is good idea to check whether CCD imager is OK. Part number: A7031213A. Other possibble cause can be the optical unit. Regards, Arpi
