Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital Camcorder
HELLO, WE BOUGHT THIS CAMERA FOR CLOSE TO $800.00 FOR OUR DAUGHTER & SON-IN-LAW WHEN THEIR FIRST CHILD WAS DUE. WORKED GREAT FOR A FEW YEARS & ONE TIME THEY USED THE NIGHTSHOT WITH TO MUCH LIGHT & NOW IT RECORDS DARK, BUT THE SOUND IS FINE. IT PLAYS BACK PREVIOUSLY RECORDED TAPES FINE & I CAN USE IT TO RECORD MOVIES TO MY COMPUTER. THE BITS & PIECES I CAN GET FROM OTHERS VIA THE INTERNET IS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE CCD LENSE???? AND ALSO THAT SONY IS A REAL PAIN TO GET THIS TAKEN CARE OF THROUGH, & VERY EXPENSIVE. CAN I ORDER THIS PART(S) & REPLACE IT MYSELF? I'M FAIRLY HANDY. THANKS FOR ANY HELP!
"Nightshot" mode removes infrared filter from light path, fixes exposure to 1/60th second and sets iris to maximum.
Probably bad CCD, possibly could salvage from another camera.
Cameras are easy to take apart, but ribbon cables are VERY delicate and difficult to remove from connectors on main board.
My suggestion is to buy another camcorder, which uses the same tape and to use the old one to rewind tapes and for video transfers.
