Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV27 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Image problem The camera lens appears to be letting in too much light or at least a portion of the lens appears to be. I have checked all settings (or at least I think that I have) and even did the "reset to factory settings" options--nothing seems to work. When you look at the image that you want to film in the LCD area, most of the upper portion of the image is obscured by an opaque white filmy screen. You also see this when you look through the viewfinder. We really do not have anyone local who is currently repairing cameras so if there is not an easy fix, this baby is headed for the scrap heap.

It appears to be a problem with the CCD sensor in some models and Sony is recalling those units for free repair until Sept 30 2008. Humidity or heat is affecting the CCD where a portion of the screen or the entire screen image is gone. Sound still will work. Check the sony site.

My camcorder will record sound but not vision any Ideas


Does the recording show a black image or no video signal? If the image is black, is the cover being left on the lens? Is the lens broken or something perhaps internally obstructing its view. If there isn't a video signal, and it reads as only an audio file than have you checked you've set the camcorder to the correct setting so the video camera portion is turned on?

Lens screen stuck open and no image on LCD view screen.


It is jamming, the only really fix is to have it repaired, that costs a lot and it is sometimes better to just replace the camera.

When recording, no picture thru viewfinder or lcd panel. Records sound. Was working fine, just started this, and the lens cap is off. Any assistance greatly appreciated.


It could be either aperture is stuck or ccd imager chip is defective in your camcorder that will be replaced.
In bright light, look into camera lens, turn ON in camera mode and observe does aperture open like an eye?
If you notice some thing opens right in center of camcorder lens then aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad that will be replaced.
Let me know model number of your Sony camcorder to provide you ccd imager part number info.
Thanks.

You can not see live view on LCD and view finder in camera mode and can playback old recordings and picture result is OK,
If yes, then its bad ccd imager problem and ccd imager will be replaced.

Here I provide you information to save 400 or some thing.
Sony will repair ccd imager problem free of cost. You can have details on Sony CCD Support.

White circles appear on the image. Why is that and what can I do?


When shooting with flash in a location where there are many suspended particles, such as in a dusty area or on a snowy day, the image may contain white circles as shown in the picture below. Why does this happen? If the flash fires when a suspended particle floats right in front of the lens, the reflection of the flash from the particle appears more intensely than that of the subject, as the particle is much closer to the lens than the subject. Therefore, the reflection of the flash turns out in the image and causes an effect such as that shown in the sample image above. The closer the lens and strobe are located, allowing suspended particles to be exposed to more light, the more frequently this effect can occur. How can I avoid this effect? Ideally, it is best to shoot in locations where there are very few suspended particles. If not, you can use following method to prevent this effect. a) Avoid using flash by lighting the area as much as possible. b) If your camera has a zoom function, shoot at a wide angle.
