Hi,

this problem is associated with the ccd imager chip,and ccd will most likely be in need of replacement,although poor internal cable or solder connections at ccd may also be,but I suspect defective ccd imager. This is a very invasive replacement and disassembly procedure and I recommend service.Due to the fairly recent mfg dates on this model I will suggest to contact mfg for warranty repair or replacement.Contact Sony factory service at (866)357-6230.

There were few reports of firmware to be at fault as well.However, it would be really tough to diagnose the exact cause without opening the cam.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Video cam model DCR-TRV265E


CCD sensor block needs replacing. Sony should do this free of charge. IF you have to pay for the repair it is not too expensive because this particular job requires only +- 1 hour labour and the CCD component is not that expensive.

LCD won't project


You may have a problem with the image sensor device (CCD). From October 3, 2005 through October 2, 2007, Sony will repair, free of charge, affected products exhibiting the above-mentioned problem where it is caused by the image sensor device. Sony will also cover the cost of shipping and handling from and to addresses within the United States and US Territories for service to correct this issue. To see if you have this problem: Power On your camcorder (make sure the battery is fully charged). Check the LCD screen and verify that the display icons are turned on. If you cannot see the icons, press the Display button until the icons are visible. Put a tape in the camcorder. With the lens cap off, record some video. NOTE: Be sure to speak during the recording so the video will contain your voice. Rewind this section of the tape (using tape counter to verify start of your recording). Play back the recorded video and use the LCD screen on the camcorder to view it. You should hear the audio you recorded and the Display icons/text will still appear. If your camcorder is affected by this CCD issue, the picture will either be extremely distorted, or there will be no visible picture (just a blank LCD screen with the display icons still visible).
