I, too, had the same problem with the DCR-HC20E I bought in an auction. I sent it to the local Sony Centre who fixed the problem. However, I still can't link this set to the PC with Windows Vista. Neither does it record from the VCR or TV even though the manual shows how it can be done.

Lens cover error message comes when its not opend. There is a switch inside Front Cover (where lens and mic mounted) got bad contact. Open that Front cover and unscrew the circuit board, put 1 drop of W-40 cleaner oil and fix back all things.

"Lens cover not open" message


There is a switch sensor which will detect if the switch is open. Try switching rapidly a couple of times, as dust must be lodged.
