Pictures taken inside a house are showing stripes of pixels. Pictures taken out side are almost wite.


I think you need to check your white balance and exposure settings - it sounds as if everything is massively over-exposed.

Hi...I have a Sony Hi8 Handycam recorder. It's about 10 years old so it's performed well. We are having trouble with recording. It will only record correctly in outdoor bright light. When I record...


It sounds to me like the aperture is stuck. The aperture is what adjusts to let in more or less light. If it is stuck closed down, it will look fine outside but won't let in enough light inside. Sadly, there is probably nothing you can do about it. You could take it to a camera repair shop, but being 10 years old, you might opt for a new camera instead. I feel your pain!

Hi how r u.?my little problem is, that whenever i am recording in the house the picture is really dark, but when i am outside... the picture is beautiful. how can i adjust this so inside the house i can...


Change the ISO to perhaps 100 ( slower rating to absorb more light) read, and check in the menu for the setting for the type of lights fluro halogen etc you may have. Some cameras have INside and OUtside settings to select for what you require.

Every picture i take is not a good quality either it's blurry or the color is horrible - kind of yellowish - what kind of adjustment do i have to make


Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.

The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.

Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.

Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.

So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.

Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly

The Color is "Off"


Did you white balance both cameras in the same setting? Sounds like one was balanced in different lighting than the other; i.e., if you white balance a camera outside and then bring it inside, the colors will be "off" as you describe.

The picture is so bright the screen turns white.


You have a problem with a stuck shutter lens. Try freeing it by putting the shutter on auto shutter. You can try shaking the camera to free the shutter mechanism. Also try using a solid object to tap around the lens to free the shutter. Do not damage your camera with these fixes. If these fixes do not work for you, you will have to take your camera to a service person and have them free up the mechanism. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

My lcd and view finder are unable to show subject


The problem you are having is called a "stuck iris" Inside the lens are two thin plastic sheets that slide over one another that limit the amount of light that comes into the lens. In some Sony camcorders, the motor or "actuator" that drives the iris, or moves the two sheets which are the iris opened and closed. The actuators sometimes leak oil onto the plastic sheets causing them to stick, so the light coming into the lens is stuck at one level. Some technicians will recommend lens replacement (expensive) but many times the iris assembly can be removed from the lens and cleaned. Try to find a service shop that will clean the iris rather than replacing the lens.

White Balance


What is White Balance? The human eye captures white as white, red as red and blue as blue, regardless of whether you are outside under the sun or inside under incandescent lighting. Although this is something that we take for granted, the human eye actually adapts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. In reality, when light sources vary, colors caught as the reflection of those light sources also vary. For instance, films for cameras that use film are designed to capture the most appropriate coloring outside under the sun. Thus when you take pictures under incandescent or fluorescent lighting without using a flash, the colors in the resulting picture may seem strange. Digital camera and digital camcorders are equipped with a handy feature called "White Balance" that corrects the changes in color under different light sources, just like the human eye. One of the white balance settings, "Auto White Balance" (AWB) automatically adjusts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. White Balance and Coloring The White Balance feature on Canon digital cameras and camcorders is set to "Auto White Balance" at the time of purchase. If you prefer different coloring, if you want to adjust the coloring more in detail, or if you want to change the coloring on purpose, we recommend that you change the white balance setting.
