Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Black picture Hi, Everything works on our camera except you can't see any picture when your trying to record. It records sound, but no picture, all you see is black. I heard something about getting a CDD, but I wasn't sure what that is, or where I could get one. If you could help me out that would be wonderful! Thanks, SJH

    Having similar behaviour after dropping the unit. Actually, the image is barely there. Hoping to get some guidance on R&R and parts source from this forum.

    I actually found out that SONY is willing to pay to fix the problem.

    I went on their web page, and after going through the steps to make sure that my camera has the problem they specified, I sent it in to the SONY company and they are fixing it for me. They even are paying postage!

    (The camera can't just be randomly broken, it needs to only have a certain problem with the CDD, and that is what they will fix.)

Camcorder will not show picture records only


CANON relied on Sony to install their CCD (The image sensor) on most of their mini camera recorders. The mount for this CCD Component is defective. Canon recognizes this and currently, (2009) offers a 100% free replacement of this part.

The effect of the malfuctioning CCD is as you describe, everything works except there is no image captured.

I took mine in and they repaired it, no questions asked, except that I may want a few other things fixed up while they were there. I declined the additional work and it didn't cost me a cent.

Find Canons website and they have a deeler locator there where you can find an authorized repair center.

No sound records sony dcrtrv530


I reviewed the owners manual to your camera.

On page 126 it says this:

1)The stereo tape is played back with HIFI sound set to 2 in the menu settings.
Set it to STEREO (see page 79)
2) The volume is turned to a minumum.
Press Volume + (see page 27)
3) Audio Mix is set to ST2 side in the menu settings.
Adjust the audio mix (see page 79)

If one of those 3 options doesn't work, try using an 8mm tape head cleaner.

No live view or black pictures, but readable menus means a bad CCD or less likely, possible shutter on cameras equipped with one (more scarce on newer digitals)
