Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV27 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Power goes on and off when first turned on

When I don't use the camera for a while and power it up to record, the LCD monitor chimes on and off several times. When I press record it chimes and goes to standby, then records a second, then chimes and goes to standby on its own and LCD monitor flicks on and off. When it's "warmed up" it works fine, OR if I first set the camera to play, let it sit for a while, then switch to record it works like it should. Irritates the heck outta me, camera not ready to record in a pinch.. Thanks for any help!!

The function switch of your camera is already losing contact that's why is intermitted on and off...when cleaning the function switch use a pencil eraser not a sand paper to the contact of the switch it will damage the switch...sometimes the flex wire of the function switch is been cut ...when you press the record button it is affecting the power

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.

Although the battery shows it takes a charge and the camera will run in playbackmode (VTR) I found if I remove the battery and run on AC the camera turns on and now I can record with it. The battery must be the problem.
