Handy Cam Lens Cover Won't Open

Hello,

I saw where Apri assisted someone (Dec 2006) with the same problem for their Handy Cam (different model). He said it needed a barrier lens replacement (part no. 178727811). Would mine use the same part? If not, do you know my part number?

Thanks,

GrinderNC

Hi

I have a DCR-HC90 and the lens cover does not open. I tried to reset the camcoder but it didnt work. I saw that part no. 178727811 has been suggested for replacement earlier. Can I use this? If yes, are there any instuctions available as to how this is to be installed?
Sony service center is charging $311 which does.t make much sense to me.

Pls. help.

Hello,

I suggest you send your handy cam in the Authorized Panasonic Dealer for proper check up and repair. Some parts might be damaged because of the fall.

Thank you.

Lost the charger of my sony dvd201 cam corder. is there any other way i can charge my camcorder?so i dnt have to buy a new charger? and do i need power to open the camcorder disc door?


Hello. Yes, you do need power to open the disc door. When you slide the disc cover open switch, you should hear the little musical sound, and then the "preparing to open cover" appears in the lcd display. Then the door opens automatically. As for charging the corder, you can get a new ac charger for 25 bucks on Ebay. Sony uses a special plug that is inserted. If you want to go the cheaper route, I saw mobile *battery* chargers for your unit(not to be used as camcorder power supplies) as inexpensive as 8 bucks...most were 10 dollars and up...the input voltage/current to the cam is 12v @ 500ma. However, the fact that the connector isn't the generic "cylinder" shaped power connector makes purchasing a compatable power source a necessity. ---Rick

"Lens cover not open" message


There is a switch sensor which will detect if the switch is open. Try switching rapidly a couple of times, as dust must be lodged.

Lens Cover will not open or close


OMG! I had the same issue and blew on the lens. To easy to be true, but it worked! I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I turned the camcorder on and off several times, and it worked every time! Sure beats the $341 Sony was going to charge to fix it!!!!
