Sony DSR-PD170 Color Problem

I’m having an intermittent problem with my PD170 that relates to color. Occasionally, the image in the LCD appears completely red. It doesn’t loose any detail, but appears to be void of any blue or green. The recorded video is captured as it appears on the LCD. Sometimes I can shut the camera down and then turn it back on to resolve the issue, but this doesn’t always work.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Sounds like a problem with the image sensor, or an intermittent cable connection to the sensor.

The image in the viewfinder is now black and white and the LCD screen doesn't work


iam very sorry that you have this problem.When an LCD screen of DSRPD170P stops working it means that you have to get a replacement LCD screen. The replacement requires a qualified technical person. if you have such a person , then here are the details for ordering the LCD screen parts:
A-7078-956-A PD-217 board complete.
8-753-209-13 ACX500ENA
1-517-931-21 Tube fluorescent cold cathode.

Please note that the viewfinder of the DSR PD170 camera is always manufactured and supplied as black and white (not colour) so this is not a fault!

My dsr pd170 lcd view screen is viewing in negative imaging. it seems to be filming fine, but the image quality slowly degrades while filming. Since we work at a camp and film things like talent shows...


dear
first tell me when u close the lcd pannel , then is the view finder working fine , if not then
view finder cable is broken . u cant fix it your self as u need to open the camcorder .you must not be having the proper tools for that.
and regarding the lcd part , if the display is fine for a while ..and then
while using it it goes fade , shows grey colour or lines in it . then its lcd problem ...ur lcd need to be replaced .

I have a sony pd170. On the lcd screen appears "CP" What does it mean?


I am one of the lead technicians at superb broadcast equipments. We are a repairshop that specializes in only Sony camcorders.

Theproblem that you are experiencing with your Sony PD170 sounds that its just normal settings u just press the button on your handle where the red light blinks when we are recodring, when you will press that button the option would blink in your lcd screen ,then turn that off .and then CP i.e, coustom preset option would disappers from the lcd.
