I know this is gonna sound funny, but your gonna have to trust that I am actually a video camera technician and know what I'm talking about. The Iris in your camera is stuck. turn your camera on and hit the bottom. dont go nuts...but don't be a wimp either. It is very common on these cameras. if it keeps doing it, that means you need to have the iris replaced. Considering the camera is quite old, there probably arent a lot of service centers that will do it for you. I can if you want me to...just message me..i work in oklahoma so you would have to ship it...
You haven't switched the camera to "macro" mode by any chance? Flash should eliminate camera shake as the source of the problem. If it isn't macro mode, then it sounds like a fault requiring the repair shop.
Sounds like a problem with the European signal trying to be viewed on an NTSC signal set. If the picture plays back fine on the camcorder and not on the tv set then its most likely the conversation loss between the 2 different video standard signals
If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.
And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
If it is not a setting problems, and if the black and white is only on
LCD and not on picture, then it is a problem with the LCD. Probably
just the ribbon cable not well inserted into the connector.
Camera must be taken apart to fix this problem. Better to have the job done by a technician at a camera repair shop.
I had the same problem and found this forum. In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom! back on to focused pictures. Hallelujah.
there are two possible problem of your camera...one check the iris of the camera if it is opening,you will see it went you look inside the lens when you turn on camera mode....and if you see that the iris is opening...the second may be the ccd image sensor......if that is the problem you have no choice but to go the sony service for replacing the ccd image sensor...
