Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony HD 10.2 MP 60gig HDD Model #HDR-SR11 I can see everything on the touchscreen but nothing works. The hard drive was full and when the pictures were taken off on the computer, I now have a hard drive issue but unfortunately without the touch screen, I can't figure out how to get it to run the fix. Is there a way to calibrate these screens? I did the reset both hard reset and the reset button, still nothing. Thanks!

The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them as well as an aftermarket supplier.

Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter-Convert AVHCD to Avid I have Sony...


Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter-Convert AVHCD to Avid

I have Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD HDD camera to shoot family videos and beach videos. However, after I transfer .mts files from Sony HDR-SR11, Avid does not support the AVCHD file. I wonder the best AVCHD workflow into Avid from Sony HDR-SR11 and google for solutions.
I was recommended with Sorenson Squeeze to convert Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid DNxHD codec. However, Sorenson Squeeze does not natively support .mts and the file extension should be changed to .m2ts. The conversion time is much longer than that the original clip. One thing should be mentioned is that the exported DNxHD is loaded quickly to Avid. Sorenson Squeeze also costs quite a lot. I just find a better Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter - Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. The price is dramatically low comparing to Sorenson Squeeze, and the output MOV video works in Avid MC and Xpress Pro.
Here is how I import Sony HDR-SR11 camera videos to Avid Media Composer by converting 1920x1080 MTS to HD MOV.
Step 1. Load Sony HDR-SR11 videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
Run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter on Mac Snow Leopard, and click the "Add" button to load HD .mts videos.
Step 2. Choose AVC MOV for Avid.
Click the "Format" option, and choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MOV (AVC)(*.mov), and the Sony MTS to Avid converter will transcode the HD MTS files to MOV for Avid MC, Xpress Pro.

Step 3. Convert Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD to Avid.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Sony MTS to Avid Converter will start converting HDR-SR11 AVCHD MTS to HD MOV for Avid Xpress Pro, or the upgraded Media Composer 5.
As soon as the conversion in finished, you can import Sony HDR-SR11 videos to Avid Media Composer, Avid Xpress Pro for editing. The output HD MOV also works in Final Cut Pro and iMovie, and other non-linear editing software like Adobe Premiere on Mac OS X.
If you are using other Sony AVCHD cameras, you may also face the same problem. Have a look at the Sony HD camcorder page for Sony HDR-XR520, HDR-CX110, DSC-TX7, HDR-TG7 and other models.

My sony hdr-sr11 got some water splashed on it and will not remain turned on. Is there a way to dry things out?


Did you remove the battery and let it dry out before you tried plugging it in and turning it on? If not, you're damaging it further every second you have it plugged in, and even more every time you try turning it on.

The fact that it still turns on briefly may mean there's still a chance. Unplug it, remove the battery, and put it in a warm, dry place. If you have a bag of uncooked rice, put it in there. Otherwise, inside a window with sunny exposure will do. Do not put it in the microwave oven, or under a hair dryer. Leave it for a day or two (or longer, if you're in a really humid environment).

Once it's dry, replace the battery, plug it in, and try it. If it works, great. If not, then you'll have to replace it or take it in for repair.

Problem seems in power supply section at VC-516 (main board). If you know how to open and repair it, just check Fuses at VC-516 board and these are located near connector coming from battery / dc-in jack area. One fuse is open in this case.
