Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC7E DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Blown Sony HDR-HC7E fuse or board?

I have a Sony Handycam HDR-HC7E camcorder. I used a cheap AC adaptor off ebay. It lasted about 5 minutes before the charger blew...and took my camcorder with it - a soft "phut" sound was heard!! No charged battery powers it on now.
Question : is there a fuse or a part inside I can change? Is there a common part which would blow in this situation? Where can I find a service manual?

Thanks in advance.

There are internal fuses yes, but they are surface mounted ones and not a DIY repair. There are protection diodes internally as well. If the adapter was not the correct one, it is possible that it popped the diodes and fuse.

You can buy the service manual from Sony directly for a cost.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Why when I use the inbuilt projector of the Sony Camcorder HDR-PJ240E with an external device,the projected screen becomes plain blue after a few minutes?


This maybe due to the external device not receiving signal to keep the display on the screen or a cable that isn't quite right. Many HD cables can cause this issue due to a security feature built into it to prevent streaming copies which helps prevent piracy. If you are using say an HDMI cable, try a different one.

The ac power adaptor ac-v515 is dead.


I can't find the AC v515 adapter any where! But You can buy the next best thing. A battery charger one that will at least fit an NP-F730 battery. Go on to eBay and type Sony vc1000 and anything related will come up. These chargers can be used in your car and at home, what's more they are not expensive.

I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.
