This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

After recording for a while my sony HVR HD1000E will give me wobbling pictures. the pictures will appear as if there's a heat wave in front of the lens. At times i'll zoom in and shake the camera...

It sounds like a sensor problem. I recently ordered repairs on one of my Sony video cams. They had to replace the lens and the sensors, but they are also refurbishing it. When it gets back, it will be in "like new" condition and ready for many more years of quality service. The repair cost is minimal compared to replacing the cam. I recommend calling Sony Company Tech support, wade through their telephone menu-maze and talk with the camcorder repair department. Here is the number as listed on their website: Priority Service Line (for U.S. only): 239-768-7547

TIPS to help protect your camera: No matter how tempting it is to film a beautiful sunset, pointing the camera at the sun for extended times (even a few minutes) can damage the lens and sensors.

Cant shoot in sunlight on my honeymoon it was like the sun was directly in the lense even though it wasnt ...i have tryed every thing i can to fix this ..any solutions

It is difficult to diagnose with the no camcorder information but it sound like the camcorder is set for night settings. Do you have different settings in your menu or a switch to set to camcorder to daylight or normal conditions? You can also try to make a temporary lens hood out of the center of a toilet paper roll or paper towel center tube. Cut it short about 3/4" to 1" and hold in front of the lens to block the light from the lens. if this works you can purchase a more permanent lens hood. How old is the camcorder? CCD and CMOS sensors degrade over time and the sensor could be weak.

The fuse in question is the "ACC" fuse and it is the 15A fuse that is third or fourth from the end of the fuse box that faces the side of the car (and it is under the dash behind the hood release). I've just had to replace mine several times in a row; you might want to check for a short.

Lens failing to function properly

Possibility is two. 1. If the lens contact to the body is not good so make sure the contacts are clean and position is locked completely. 2. 90% of the solution comes from repair on Main circuit in the lens. Good Luck. For further assistance go to James.
