My camcorder can play old tapes but won't record


Hi,
Your camcorder Sony DCR-HC20E has bad ccd imager problem and that part will be replaced to have live view to record on tape.
I can provide you ccd imager part number info if you want to repair it by yourself.
CCD Imager replacement in this camcorder requires expertise and fair skills of soldering parts in PCB.
