Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD300 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Green flicker When I am recording the camera image will unexpectedly turn green and start flickering. It almost appears like the recorded image is being drug, kind of like tracking on a vcr. Unfortunately I have numerous memories recorded that are now scarred this way. My husband thought it might have something to do with the night vision because it turns green. But since I have never used that feature in the 4 years I have owned the camera, I doubt it. I really hope you can help. I have my first grandchild arriving next month.

    Thank you so much, frustrated80! I would have never known about the repair had you not told me. I have submitted my repair request and now I'll just wait until I can ship my camera back. I thank you, my daughter thanks you and my soon to arrive grandson thanks you!!! Hopefully I'll have it back by then ;o

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

No image on LCD screen


It sounds like you're receiving partial information on the LCD screen and that the image sensor isn't sending information to the screen.

If you know the sensor is working by recording some video on an SD card and being able to view the recorded video on your PC, then there is a disconnect between the LCD and the image sensor.

If you are not recording video to your SD card and only get black images or no files, the image sensor is damaged.

If you are recording video, but no image appears on your LCD for internal viewing/playback, you can try a firmware update if one is available from www.insigniaproducts.com, but this is a discontinued item so there's not much available for support.

Hope this helps!

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.

No image displayed through viewfinder or lcd screen


could be one from a batch with faulty CCDs - check out this fixya link (solution 2) - http://www.fixya.com/support/t115316-canon_mv30 - it's copied from a page at imaging-resource.com - my MV600i was out of warranty and I sent it back to Canon at the end of 2007 and they got it going again free of charge within the week - unfortunately within weeks a very similar fault appeared and now they're trying to charge me for the repair !!! even though they say repairs are under warranty for six months -
