Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV25 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Hi- I have a Sony DCR-TRV25 mini camcorder. When I attempt to recording something, there is no video recording, just a black screen. It records the sounds, but nothing from the viewfinder. And, yes, the cover is off the front of the lens.

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Hi my sony dcr-hc18e camcorder plays back but doesnt record


Hello,
Unfortunately you're going to need to get some repairs done to your device, the reasoning behind the black screen on recording mode is that one of the many pieces responsible for bringing the image from start to finish has become mis-aligned.
It's either going to be the CCD sensor that has shifted or one of the lenses is slightly off angle and is sending the image off into a wall on the inside of the camcorder.
Estimated repair cost is going to be in the range of $200 USD.
Best of luck with this!

Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How did this happen and how do I undo it?


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.

I can't hear the recorded video!


At first, when you were not able to hear sound in playback on Camera LCD view, it was problem of Built-in Speaker defect. Now you can't hear sound on TV as well, it means Sound Processor IC is defective. You need to contact Sony Service Center for proper repair.
