Question about Video Cameras
We turned on our Handycam and nothing appears in the view finder or on the screen. There are no error messages appearing, and it will record and take pictures, but we can't see anything - almost like a lens cap is covering the lens, but there is no lens cap! We tried adjusting the brightness, but that didn't help. Any ideas? I have a TVR245E Sony Digital Vidio Camera Recorder. All funtions working. Sound, Playback, Pre - Recorded Tapes. Now no vision when recording although the lens reads Standby and Rec. read operating instructions on Types of trouble and how to correct but none of them apply to my problem. Charged battery, Set the clock, and pressed the re-set button. Look at the menu. Can not discover or solve the problem. PLEASE HELP ! !
I HAD THIS PROBLEM ERROR CODE C31 : 22 WOULD COME UP AND TRV 118 CAM WOULD NOT WORK. I TRIED EVERYTHING TILL ONE DAY I BANGED IT ON A CARPETED FLOOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CAMCORDER 5 TIMES QUITE HARD. THEN THE CAM WORKED JUST FINE! MY CAM HADN'T WORKED FOR OVER 7 MONTHS. NOW I HAVE IT BACK. HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE.

Can you record images but not see them in the viewfinder, or are your recorded images blank? Can you see prerecorded stuff? Sounds like a CCD malfunction, Sony had a recall, look into it as it affected hundreds of different models of digital cameras and camcorders.

Tips for a great answer:
The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD
monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the
viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,
and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
