Question about Sony HVR-Z1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Whether it is on battery or mains, the camera turns itself off and on. Ive had the camera 9 months, it worked fine unil 2 days ago (that's when it started doing that, only occasionally at first, but getting worse). Thanks for your help.

Carefuly check for your model if there is an auto power off feature! Many of these devices have this for battery power savings. Some of these models can be set to as little as 1 minute up to several hours.
If there is an actual defect, you will have to send the camera to the manufacture rep for service if it is not a set up in the menu for auto power off. The power supply may be at fault, or some component on one of the boards is changing spec and is causing a safety shutdown.
Most of the repairs in your camera are done by module and board change. There are some factory procedures for performing specific setups that the average service center cannot perform.
Get an estimate before accepting repairs. In many cases with home video equipment that is out of warranty, they are not worth servicing.
