When i turn on the camera to record, the screen is black can't see anything. It records the sound but no image.


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and will require disassembling the camera to repair. The lens assembly will need to be removed, the old CCD de-soldered from the circuit board and a new one installed in its place. This can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

DCR-TRV33 Free Repair by koertd - 3/9/08 3:45 PM In reply to: Sony DCR-TVR22 – tape stuck by willibo Thanks to all. Ready to trash my DCR-TVR33, but found the cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif800-222-1669cb_transparent_r.gif number. While holding, I found online support at: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=161&mdl=DCRTRV33
(I guess several trips to Hawaii and Fuji didn't help the humidity/temperature issues!)

The friendly Sony representative had me reset the camera and then offered to have the problem fixed for free, including shipping.
