Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV33 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Even with the switch in the off position, nightshot is still active.
The problem may be with a defective switch on the inside or simply that the switch wore out or the inner lever broke. If the switch does not have a solid click feel but a smooth glide then the internal lever broke, if you cannot feel a difference then the contacts either came off the board or they are worn/dirty. You can press down lightly and then move the switch. You can also try cleaning the internal contact by removing all power sources "charger and batteries " from the device and dropping a small amount of rubbing alcohol in the switch where it can slowly flow into the inside a little and then rock the switch back and forth 10-15 times and then let dry for an hour or too. This should help some.
