Question about Sony DCR-HC18E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi my sony dcr-hc18e camcorder plays back recordings but it wont record its just a black screen. when its on camera mode its just a black screen
Unfortunately you're going to need to get some repairs done to your device, the reasoning behind the black screen on recording mode is that one of the many pieces responsible for bringing the image from start to finish has become mis-aligned.
It's either going to be the CCD sensor that has shifted or one of the lenses is slightly off angle and is sending the image off into a wall on the inside of the camcorder.
Estimated repair cost is going to be in the range of $200 USD.
Best of luck with this!
