This camera does not have a light what is on the front of the camera is a flash not a light. It is available when you are in photo mode but not in video mode.

How to get rid of the dark spot in front of the car when the headlight is turned on? Is there any adjustment for this?

Headlights can be aimed, and after a bulb replacement they need to be. You can aim them, all it takes is night and a screwdriver. Rule of thumb:
Single headlights on each side, should be aimed to drop straight ahead and drop 2 feet per 100 feet. Dual headlights on each side, drop 1 foot per 100 feet.
It helps to have a level, 100 foot driveway or quiet street to aim. . .

I have a 2007 Corolla LE. With my DRL, front lights are working but the rear ones just turned off. I checked all four bulbs, they are working fine when brakes are applied during the day and night when...

Daytime Running Lights (DRL) feature only activates the front low beam headlights. The rear parking light are not turned on by the DRL, they only come on in dark conditions or by selecting the light manually.

How do you work the camcorder at night?

Some camcorders have the ability to see infrared. This is broadcast as a red light spectrum, but you cant see it, kind of like a rainbow but you can only see them at vertain angles. Some remote controls are this way as well. A good way to check to see if your camcorder can see infrared light is to go in total darkness. have your camcorder turned on, (or hooked up to the tv and turned on) either way so you can actually see either the view screen or the TV. Aim the remote control, (preferably not the cameras remote but rather say a dvd or tv remote) and press and hold a button. If you see the light light up say when you press the pause button on the DVD remote you should see it light up on the screen. If this is the case you can purchase an infrared light so you can shoot in the dark. If you have a full moon this will help as well. Since the light spectrums are not the same most infrared on camcorders show up as green and the blacks of your eyes glow white. On higher end camcorders they compensate for this and make it grey instead of green. But most the stuff you see at night is green.

Sony TRV308 Camcorder is not picking up light when recording

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Do your videos come out dark when you play them back? Or Is it dark while you are recording?
If it's dark while you are recording, is it dark in the viewfinder, or the LCD screen?

If your videos come out dark when you play them back, check the manual exposure. Hit the exposure button and turn the sel/push execute wheel to change the exposure to lighter.

If you are looking through the view finder to record and it's dark, check to make sure the window is clean.

If your LCD screen looks dark while your recording, put the power switch to player, hit the menu button and scroll down to LCD, select it and turn the select wheel to brighter.

I had to guess at what your problem was due to the information you provided, so I tried to cover the most obvious. If I failed to answer your question, please comment and be more specific.

Hope this helps, and thank you for coming to FixYa.

I don't know how put the night light to recor in dark places

There is no night recording feature for the Samsung SC-DX103 model nor does it have a video light, I just purchased one from Circuit City on 12/8/08 and I might return it because being able to record in low light situations is a must have for camcorders.
