Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV33 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

No image coming through on my cam

Everything on my camera seems to be working fine except that I cannot capture any images. Basically, the lens no longer views anything. The lcd screen is fine and I can play back the tapes on it. Sound works too but when I switch to capture mode it's as if the camera is "blind".

Just before this happened I noticed that when I was capturing, the image was changing odd colors or becoming fuzzy, and there seemed to be light spots that would appear. Suddenly it went blank and that was the end of it.

    What exactly is a CCD Imager and would you know if this part and repair would be costly?

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

Was dropped. Now will do everything EXCEPT take photos. Lens, display, flash, etc. etc. all work fine. Just no screen image or photo when in "shoot" mode.


Sounds like the CCD or a stuck shutter blade. Try this place: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only service Canons and they are the only place we recommend for the Canons. It's all they work on and they are about half the price of most shops, plus the work is just excellent through them.

DC280 Kodak Camera- Everything is working fine


Take the batteries out of the camera and let it sit for around an hour. Turn your dial to "set up", then put the batteries back in and turn the camera on, it should ask you to reset the date and time on the LCD. If it doesn't, your camera is essentially dead. Buy a new Panasonic FZ35 if you can afford it. Best All Around Camera I have ever had including the more expensive SLRs.

Fuji Finepix F30 Suddenly takes only all pink screens (no image)


This sounds like one of two problems -
Either an LCD screen problem or a bad CCD sensor.
A LCD screen problem would indicate one of two of the following - it was cracked, or the cable inside is either damaged or moved out of the plug and need to be reseated.

A bad CCD sensor would show a pink screen on cameras, but would also show menus on the screen as well, do you see those? The CCD basically captures the image the lens is seeing and translates it to an image the camera can save. Generally the CCD can not be replaced separately from the lens and will require an entire lens assembly for repair.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the...


The clue is with the video.
The video function does not use the shutter. Lines on photo's or over exposure is due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens when you take a picture.
It will require cleaning which means opening up your camera and accessing the lens unit

Canon A520 Everything works, except the button you take pictures with. It wont work.


I need more information about what symptoms you are experiencing. I am going to guess that your shutter is stuck closed. This would cause a blank image to show on the view screen and your captured pictures. The regular icons and text would still display normally. Is this what you are seeing? If not please explain further what is happening and I will respond again with more information. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
