3.5 in monitor is not working

I went to use my camcorder today and when I open the monitor it did not come on. I closed it and tried again. The camcorder functioned normally except for this one feature. I just used the camcorder a couple of days before with no problem. It has been safely in it's bag since then, please advise.

Re: 3.5 in monitor is not working

Well I think it could be one of 3 problems you are having

1.) the cable or data strip is disloged or slack
2.) the monitor is gone
3.) the display circuit is damaged

What you can do is open it up and try cleaning the data strip(the one connecting the monitor to the camera) to see if it is broken or disloged,. if it is disloged just clean it and put i back in if it is broken you;d need to change it..

If that didnt help you'd have to purchace replacement parts, if you wish to repair it your self you can downalod your service manual and follow the instruictions there to fix it.. however i recommend getting a professional to have a look at it since they will be in a better position to tell you exactly whats wrong.. Remember they will have in in frount of them and be able to trouble shoot it..
Remember sometimes its better to purchase a new camera as replacement parts + shipping + repairs can be close to or even more that a new camera.

If you want to try to repair it your self you will require your service manual *detailed informatyion on how to repair it)

to get it just google (camera brand model service manual)

regards ..

SONY DCR200 CAMCORDER turn off when I Opend th LCD but it's working when attached with AC power Cable

More than likely the camera has an internal problem in the power supply section. There is an electronic switching circuit that switches between the battery input and the DC input coming from the AC adapter. Your camera requires professional servicing. One such place is Home Services Consumer Camcorder Sony

My camera's monitor/screen is black with no picture

My AIPTEK 1080p was powering on but the screen was turning off within one second of turning the unit on. I verified that the camera was still working and just the output onto the screen failed. I was able to resolve this by hooking the camcorder up to the TV and viewing the menus on the TV and then turning the camcorder off with the power button. I think this problem happened because I didn't do a "clean" shutdown the last time I had my aiptek hooked up to the TV. It is now working perfectly!

Tape rack stayed open

I just experienced the same problem, but it took me 10 minutes to get it working again. When you look inside the tape rack, you see on the left side in the middle a little mechanical arm which you can press down for about 1cm when you release it again the rack opens completely Good luck Robert

Cannot insert a tape

This just happened to me today, apparently in my case it has something to do with condensation inside the camera, I don't know if this applies to you but at the moment I have the cassette slot open and in the sun, hopefully it will help, two hours apparently should do it. Give it a go, it can't hurt, I wouldn't put the actual cassette in direct sunlight though, so make sure you take that out. Hope this Helps

Sony Handycam DCR-HC30 2004 model

Your unit is a 2004 model. If it has never been used since then the battery is probably no good and will need replaced. Batteries discharge 20% on a monthly basis just sitting on the shelf so yours went dead a long time ago. Then if they are left in that state (dead) they sulfate which means that sulfur oxides transfer to the plates and form an insulating surface. At that point all the charging in the world is not going to bring it back. All you can do is get another one. They are available at most stores which sell electronics. Get a new battery and charge it per the instructions and try using it again. This should solve your problem. Good luck.
