This could be as simple as the iris stuck closed or more expensive (ccd defective). Without taking the camera apart, it will be difficult to say with any confidence. Have you looked around to see what a repair estimate will cost? Perhaps you can get a detailed estimate from a local shop. We may be able to walk you through the repair?

When recording, no picture thru viewfinder or lcd panel. Records sound. Was working fine, just started this, and the lens cap is off. Any assistance greatly appreciated.


It could be either aperture is stuck or ccd imager chip is defective in your camcorder that will be replaced.
In bright light, look into camera lens, turn ON in camera mode and observe does aperture open like an eye?
If you notice some thing opens right in center of camcorder lens then aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad that will be replaced.
Let me know model number of your Sony camcorder to provide you ccd imager part number info.
Thanks.

Viewfinder and LCD screen only show black and record black


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.

Sony digital video camera mode no. DCR-HC14E not showing pictures/recording


If your Sony DCR-HC14E shows fine picture in playback of old tapes and does not give live view in camera mode to record then its CDD Imager problem that Sony will repair free of cost.

My screen


If the camera can record images, and they do not show in the viewfinder while the recording is being done, the fault may be the following:


My answer will be generic to almost all video cameras in general.

On the circuit board where the viewfinder control is done, there is an IC and some electronics for this process. It is possible that this IC or something in the related circuits is not working properly, or there is a bad ribbon cable, or a cold solder connection.

The first thing to do before bringing the camera for service, is to check the menus if you can see them. Make sure that there is no option turn on in order to use an external viewfinder while the camera is in the record mode. If you cannot view the camera setup menu check for a mechanical switch on the side, or back of the camera, or in a compartment for this option. If all else fails, then there is a fault condition.

Also read through the instruction manual, and through the fault sections.
