Can't turn off nightshot on my handycam help!!!


Option 1:

Using the NightShot:

1. First Set the POWER Switch to Camera, Slide NIGHTSHOT to ON.

2. The NIGHTSHOT indicators flash on the screen.

3. To cancel the NightShot mode, Slide NIGHTSHOT to OFF.


Option 2:

1. Let us try to reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

2. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

3. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Accidently turned on nightshot,can't turn it off


  1. Open this link to the user manual.
  2. http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/2661364112.pdf
  3. Go to page 42 of the manual. The picture shows switch #1, which is on the top of the camera. Move this to OFF. This will remove the Nightshot.

Sony trv18e a few things don't work


Night shot light is "Infra Red" and you can not see it directly though camera will shoot in darkness if you slide ON Night-Shot switch.

Regarding playback volume problem, I think built-in speaker is defective ( open ) and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if you want some more info.

This is the solution, I would only add that it's on the top of the camera itself. Not in the digital menu or backlight button. On my older version, it's between the cassette and lens sections of the camera. 
Never having used the nightshot before, my sister left me with the same quandary...

For the "all white screen" in daylight problem, check to make sure the "Nightshot Plus" slider switch is set on "off."

Nightshot Plus


If you really feel up to it the thing has screws, start opening them and take of the plastic cover. But think 4 times before messing with a 400 $ camera, maybe you'd rather take it to a lab, shouldn't be too expensive. There's many things that can go wrong if you do it yourself Good luck
