Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201E DVD Camcorder
I have a Sony Handycam with 6.1 megapixels. Suddenly, the camera is telling me that the disc may be scratched, and I should clean it and try again. Nothing seems to work...not even a brand new disc. Any suggestions?
Your camera might have an issue with the lens not reading the disc properly. if you already tried using b/n dvd disc, just make sure there are no smudges on it when you place it in the dvd cam. to futher isolate issue,try playing back discs with previous recordings that you made. if still it doesn't work. reset the camcorder (check manual for reset button location, make sure cam powered on when you press button using any fine-tipped object). if still didn't work.do power reset.remove battery or ac adapter.leave the cam w/o any power source for at least a minute. if your still getting the same problem, it won't hurt to try cleaning the lens using an 8cm dvd disc cleaner (w/c usually comes w/a non-abrasive solution) as the last resort. if everything fails, unit may need service. hope this helps. thanks:)
