Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR82 Camcorder
Have a sony dcr sr 82. When looking through the lcd panel while shooting video, the images that I am shooting rolls through the viewfinder...meaning, it horizontally rolls down on the screen in a fast motion so that I can not even see what I am shooting. Playback is fine though.
You absolutely must send in the unit for repair. This is nothing for a consumer to tackle(and some techs! lol) Really tho, either the circuitry is damaged or an adjustment was shifted. There are PRECISE electronic and mechanical settings all working in delicate concert to give you that crisp image--and steady one. Heat, shock, vibration, age, and moisture all work towards causing a malfunction. Send the unit in directly to a repair facility and *not* through a store--unless under warranty. There are substantial charges that a store tacks on to the bill you see--not the actual repair cost. Hope I was of some help!---Rick

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
