I'm not sure about the number but I think it's 1-888-217-SONY.  I described what it was doing and the Sony person said it was a "CCD issue"  I had to give them my serial number and I'm not sure what other info.  They gave me an address to send it to Sony Repair Center along with a number to put on the outside of the box.  I was to include a description of what was wrong and say that it was a "CCD issue"  If I remember correctly, all shipping and handling was taken care of and they fixed my camera free of charge.  Hope this helps.

Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next Notice to Owners of Sony Camcorder October 3, 2005



Thank you for your support and patronage of Sony Camcorders.

It has recently come to our attention that a limited number of Sony Camcorders that incorporate an image sensor device, CCD Chip, manufactured from October 2002 through March 2004 may exhibit the following condition:


When the Camcorder is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder will show either a distorted image or no image.


We have determined that this condition only occurs to a limited number of units.


In its effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony has elected to offer a free repair to the owners of applicable Camcorders if the image sensor device, CCD chip, causes one of the above-mentioned conditions. Accordingly, customers who have a Sony Camcorder as outlined below and if such Sony Camcorder exhibits the above-mentioned condition caused by the image sensor device, CCD chip, may contact the special call center number below for free repair:
