Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD100 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Must reset the camcorder to power on.

My Sony Handycam DCR-DVD100 won't turn on unless it push the reset button. After resetting the camcorder it works normally until is it turned off for a few minutes. Then I have to push the reset button again to get it to turn on. If I don't push the reset button when I turn it on I get a blue screen on the LCD for a few seconds and then it just powers off by itself.

Sony wants $211 to repair the problem which seem like a lot considering I can buy the new model for just over $300.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sony has a fixed repair cost which includes parts. That is where the $211 comes from. If you have a major problem, you win as the boards inside can easily cost more than that. If you have a minor problem, well...

That being said, there are no other symptoms other than the need for a reset? This sounds like a logic problem. The power-on should be resetting the whole camera anyway. I'll look up this model tonight. As far as the shutdown is concerned, this is normal. If the power-up sequence fails (not performing the reset constitutes failure), the unit shuts down to prevent damage. So at least that part functions correctly.

Stay tuned...

Will not turn on or start up..Sony Handycam DCR-DVD300 DVD


Try resetting the Camcorder to the factory settings by pressing the reset button. If the issue persists, try power resetting the camcorder. To power reset, remove the battery of the Camcorder and press and hold the power button for 30 second(or turn the Power switch to ON position for 30 seconds) and reinsert the battery after one minute and check the operation. If the issue still persists, the service is required.

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.

DCR-DVD100 is mentioned in free of cost CCD replacement scheme announced by Sony.
If you want to replace it by yourself then it requires few $$ and soldering expertise.
I would recommend to contact Sony and let the job done by Sony experts. You will spend $15 in shipment, Click Sony Support for details.
Good Luck.
