Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX1000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

The menu buttons don't work but everything else does (as far as I can tell). This camera wasn't used for years. Works well otherwise but I can't access the menu - nothing happens when I press the button (or the others below it). I replaced the 2025 with a new one and plug it in to make sure it gets total power. Hope you can help, I'd love to use it as second camera. Thanks!

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the menu buttons to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

I have had my camera for 3 years but never had bought a memory card for it. I recently purchased one from Walmart. When i put the memory card in the digital display almost gets stuck and won't open so...


The camera takes SD cards up to 2GB (not SDHC cards). If you've been taking pictures using the camera's internal memory, you must first get rid of those pics. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert your new card and go through the "format" routine again to prepare the new card.

I just need to to know how to turn on the flash and how to change the iso on the nikon coolpix l120


Press up-arrow on the multiselector (marked with a lightning bolt) to bring up the flash menu. Be aware that not all modes let you use the flash.

The camera controls the ISO sensitivity. Unfortunately, you don't have any control over it. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works.

Unfortunately, you don't. The D700 works with the ML-3, not the ML-L3.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Shutter appears to be stationary in closed position. Bulb works, no light through the lens. Hasn't been used for at least 10 years. Was in working order when stored. Storage not climate controlled - got up...


After 10 years of non-use, the lubrication in the camera would have gummed up to the point you are at right now. Your camera and lens needs a cleaning and lubrication by an experienced service tech.

The buttons not working on olympus camedia D-560


When we repair cameras we repair by replacing a part like a button board. Unlike year past when camera could be fixed most often without parts todays digital almost always need parts replaced. Manufactures are producing much cheaper products who's life span is far shorter than the 35mm of the past.
