Hi . .
I downloaded the manual . . found I needed to replace the 3 volt lithium battery
located on the underside of the hand grip for the zoom.
Changed the battery . . . No red flashing icon in the viewfinder.

Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck
You are one of the lucky ones with a defective ccd, the electronic chip in the lens assembly that makes the image. Actually if you ship this to JVC before October they are repairing this problem at no charge because of a batch failure with this part. Go to jvcservice.com to get info.
