Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR100 Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony Handycam DCR-SR100

The second time I used the camera, I took it to the beach. Unfortunately, it got a little salt water, and instantly stopped working. I cannot power it up. I have the movies of my wedding and honeymoon in the hard drive that I would like to save and see again.
Can somebody please give me the right advise? I live in Sri Lanka.
I took it to a repair shop and was told that it cannot be repaired, and that I need to buy the same camera and they will try and power it with the new camera. Is this correct? I cannot afford to buy another camera.
I appreciate it immensely if someone is willing to help me.

Re: Sony Handycam DCR-SR100

I think you can try to deassemble the camcorder and see what type of hard disk it's using and get a connector hook up to your computer to retrieve the important image/videos.

I am trying to upgrade the sr100 to a bigger hard disk and that's why I am searching for help also.

The error e:61:10 signifies a stuck internal lens. Shut it off and tapping it on the side might work. If not you could have it repaired. In that case you may as well buy a new camera. Sorry.

Touch screen has stopped responding on our DCR-sr100. Is there anything I can try to fix this problem. We can no longer download video from the camera to the computer without a working touchscreen. Camera...

You could try removing the battery, and reinstalling the battery to see if the touch screen starts working again. If it doesn't, this device will need to be sent in to Sony for repairs.

Find a location to get your Sony product repaired, the Sony repair cost, and to initiate the repair procedure. Here is a link to Sony's Repair site:

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital-8 won't calibrate tapes to be able to view

hi there. i just actually had this problem right now. and heres how i fixed it :) it had the error so i took out the tape left it ejected for about 5 seconds. then put the tape back. it read for a little then errored again so it was close. next what i did is plugged the camera in (last time this error happened i plugged in the power and it fixed it) still no fix so i took off the battery waited 5 seconds then put it back on. after that i ejected the tape again and re put it in and it worked! you could try anyone of those things. and usually they work for me. maybe it has something to do with the cameras being old.

Power outage

Yes there are fuses. Unfortunately, by exposing the camcorder to salt water, it is probably a write off. I personally would not guarantee any repairs to a unit exposed to saltwater (or any water for that matter). Salt water is EXTREMELY corrosive and can cause problems long after the exposure happened.
