    I'm not sure what you mean by firmware. It sounds like you know what you are talking about, I am just not very technically savvy, so could use a more in-depth explanation of how to do this.

    Thanks :)

    Hi,
    Firmware is software that is embedded in a piece of hardware. It is a combination of both software and hardware .
    Many companies will release regular firmware updates to keep their hardware compatible with new media.

    So from the link provided to select your operating system and download the firmware updates .
    Connect your camcorder to the system and update the firmware .


    Hope this helps .

Did you examine to see if the lens cover is on?
If it is on remove it. If it is off,you need to go in the menu and select record instead of play.

It wont play back, no picture available I tried playing some old home movies i shot, and there is no picture, no sound, nothing. I can hear it playing though


I have had the same thing happen on my Sony 340 digital 8 too, and it was the LCD chip that failed, I understand that this is common on a number of models, Sony did do a recall on some makes to stop this problem, but I never see recall till my LCD failed in 2007.

Hi my sony dcr-hc18e camcorder plays back but doesnt record


Hello,
Unfortunately you're going to need to get some repairs done to your device, the reasoning behind the black screen on recording mode is that one of the many pieces responsible for bringing the image from start to finish has become mis-aligned.
It's either going to be the CCD sensor that has shifted or one of the lenses is slightly off angle and is sending the image off into a wall on the inside of the camcorder.
Estimated repair cost is going to be in the range of $200 USD.
Best of luck with this!

Sony dcr-dvd105 no sound


Try this:
Play back a recently recorded scene through the viewing screen. Make sure any "mute" setting is turned off and turn the volume up. If you can hear the sound, the problem is not in the camera. Also, run through your menu's audio settings to make sure that they are set correctly.
If you can't hear any sound, repeat the process with an external mike attached. If this gives you sound, the camera's built in mike is defective. Time to hand it in for repair.
If you still can't hear any sound, something else is wrong with the camera. Again, send it in for repair.

Camera will not record


Contact Sony at 1-800-222-7669.  Mine was doing the same thing and it is a weak link in the DCR-TRV460 and DCR-TRV260.  They are sending me a shipping label and say they will fix it for free.
