Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD300 DVD Camcorder

4 Answers

Screen flickers green on recording

Whether I'm recording or in standby mode, my screen will flicker green or at times be a totally distorted green. It will usually correct itself, but it doesn't give me a very enjoyable video to watch later. My HandyCam is about 4 years old and this is the only problem I've had. Hey doogie18,
I have the exact same problem with my dcr-dvd300 which is also about 4 years old. My camera will do the green flicker repeatedly while recording. It's really kind of sad when you think about the cost we put out for this camera!

This is a hardware problem either in the LCD or in the circuit that is controlling the LCD / giving it the signal.

You will have to send this to sony for repair or if you think your up to the task we need to get you a repair manual and replacement parts, but before that the fault has to bee located.

Maybe best to take it to a local repair man or if you know someone personally who has experience in this field.

Let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks,
Ekse

HI,

First make sure that you didn't just leave the camera on for five minutes in standby mode. The camera is programmed to shut down, to keep the tape from melting from the friction of the spinning video head drum against the stationary tape and thereby clogging the heads. This is normal and desired. To fix this just turn the thumb switch off and on, as explained in the manual. If you are using the camera as an external source for another device, like webcam streaming on USB, as a Video or S-Video source for a VCR, or Firewire to a DVD Burner or computer, then you will want to disable this feature. Remove the tape, if you are using the more versatile Camera Mode. Or turn the power switch up all the way and use Memory Mode. If using the VCR mode to play back a tape, get the tape moving before it times out.

It could be the CCD unit is acting up. You should take it into a shop and have them look at it.

It sounds more like a loose connection on the wires or flex cables that connects the screen to the main circuit board inside the camera.

Check the VU connector between the deflection and signal boards on the foil side for ring cracked connections... Pin 13 is blue and I think 12 is green... If cracked simply reflow some solder on each pin and re-assemble.

I researched a similar problem (black screen instead of distorted) with my DCR-DVD300 and found that Sony is aware of the problem and will repair it for free. See the following link at the Sony site: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?mdl=DCRDVD300&news_id=161

Hi
The most likely problem is the auto focus module.
A costly repair.
If you are going to fix it ask for a rebuilt one.

Updating s/w (assume this is software?)


Hi how long do you wait until you turn it off? the user manual says that his process can take a long time so if its only been a few minutes might want to wait a while longer, user manual gives an idea of times. check the manual for setting your unit only to update in standby mode, so this process doesnt happen while your watching TV etc
