I have a DCR-DVD100 sony handycam. It's been a few months since I used it. When I went to turn it on today, it only showed blurred lines with one white line running left to right. You can slightly see different light images if someone is moving. It was out of battery life and shut off. I recharged it, and the same problem is happening. It recordes it the same way the LCD views it. The voice recording works fine. I have never had a problem with it. Please help.

DCR-DVD100 is mentioned in free of cost CCD replacement scheme announced by Sony. If you want to replace it by yourself then it requires few $$ and soldering expertise. I would recommend to contact Sony and let the job done by Sony experts. You will spend $15 in shipment, Click Sony Support for details. Good Luck.
Sony has a fixed repair cost which includes parts. That is where the $211 comes from. If you have a major problem, you win as the boards inside can easily cost more than that. If you have a minor problem, well...
That being said, there are no other symptoms other than the need for a reset? This sounds like a logic problem. The power-on should be resetting the whole camera anyway. I'll look up this model tonight. As far as the shutdown is concerned, this is normal. If the power-up sequence fails (not performing the reset constitutes failure), the unit shuts down to prevent damage. So at least that part functions correctly.
