This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired 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.

Sidebar gone, how do i get it back


Not sure if your problem is in Microsoft or in Apple so here are the steps for both systems:
Microsoft To fix this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click All Programs.
  2. Click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. At the command prompt, type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.Regsvr32 atl.dll
    Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sbdrop.dll
    Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\wlsrvc.dll
    exit
  4. Restart the computer.

Apple Couple of different approaches could potentially work:

Usually you will just click on the jellybean to get it back. Watch the Youtube video to see how easy this is. If this does not work, try one of the steps below.

1. Close all finder windows so when you click the finder icon it opens a new finder window, one with no sidebar. Then go View>Show Toolbar
Then once the toolbar is enabled, the view/hide sidebar toggle becomes activated in that same menu.

2. Close all finder windows so when you click the finder icon it opens a new finder window, one with no sidebar. Then go View>Show Toolbar
Then once the toolbar is enabled, the view/hide sidebar toggle becomes activated in that same menu.

3. Does it show only "FAVORITES" on the sidebar? Move your mouse a little to the right of it, until it says "Show" and press it.

4. If the sidebar is open and items are just missing, then moving the mouse just slightly to the right of the text will reveal a "Show" link.
However, if the sidebar is missing completely from the finder window, simply key option/command/s at the same time to reveal the sidebar. You can also simply hover over View > Show/Hide Sidebar.

5. Click on FINDER, then Preferences. Click on General tab near the top. Half way down "New Finder windows show" (Drop down menu) Click on it.
Choose your scenario. Should work after that.

6. It is possible somehow the Sidebar became hidden by pulling the center bar that separates the Sidebar from the right side viewing pane to the LEFT.
Make sure your Finder/View has Show Sidebar; then try placing your mouse to the far left and see if you get an "i" bar so you can drag it to the right which will make the Sidebar viewable again.

My view finder on my sony dslr A100 wont show what i am looking at though the view finder


The A100 uses sensors near where you place your eye. Make sure the rubber eye cup is clean, and does not block these sensors.
as a test put your finger on them while holding camera away from face ( located just below eye cup) then you will see the view finder light up. If not problem is the sensors.

Dvx100a showing black screens on lcd screen and view finder


You probably have the lens cap on, the iris dial closed, or you are in vcr mode rather than camera mode. You may also have the nd filter set to 1/64th, this is only for bright sunlight. When shooting indoors with low light, set the nd filter to off and hit the iris button until iris manual appears on the lcd, then dial the iris dial in front of the iris button up or down to bring the iris to around 5.6 f stop.

LCD and view finder not working


Well I saw on other post you can turn the screen outwards. It is very difficult to use....but you have to do what you have to do. For the view finder I am still searching for an answer..
