Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Color balance of video output

The color balance in the video output from my Sony DCR-PC100 is off, especially in green/yellow values. Color balance appears correct in the LCD screen, but is considerably off when viewed on tv or pc screen. I also notice a green/yellow coloration in the upper right portion on the playback monitor, which I've never seen before. Otherwise, the camera seems to be operating fine. Can this problem be corrected, and if so, what is the process and what is a ballpark estimate for repair?
Thank you

An estimate of repair is pointless it would cost less just to get a new camera.

Using Windows 7 virtual machine (via Parallels Desktop 5). When I plug in my sony DCR-PC100 mini-DV camcorder Windows doesn't see it.

Windows 7 sucks. Try "downgrading" to Win XP. I've had many problems with my new computer which had Windows 7, which have all been solved after I made the downgrading.

Try setting the white balance. This problem my be as simple as the coloring being off a little bit. Try setting the white balance on one push to a bright color and see if that helps at all.

If you are not getting good color picture then I would advise to perform white balance adjustments in service data with help of concern service manual.
This kind of adjustments required service data handling tools, reference color charts, proper and up to date service manual etc.
Please contact nearest Sony service center for proper fix.
