Black scene frame

I have a Sony DCR-DVD100 that is showing a black screen in the scene frame. I was able to view my recording a few times, but today it is black. Am i doing something incorrectly?

    when I turn on to record the screen is black (as though I have the cover on.) There are no other buttons to push, so the last posting was not helpful. Any other ideas.

You have a defected ccd. Get a new camera because it is extremely expensive to repair and the problem will only get worse, plus the camera isn't that great anyway.

I think you have changed the screen into other mode so that you are unable to see the recording picture there will be a switch to change the mode at the back of the cam or at the right of the cam.

I have a sony DCR-DVD100 that has been in storage for a year and now it will not record. Will play back previous disk however on its screen. What could be wrong?


Try Resetting the Camcorder. To Reset the Camcorder, first open the LCD of the Camcorder to locate the Camcorder(on the side of the Camcorder, next to RECORD and VOLUME buttons). Then, press and release the RESET button using a sharp pointed object. Then, check whether the issue is resolved.
If the issue still persists service of the Camera is required.
You may also try changing the battery.
