Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Video output image colors bleeding colors blue and red.

Video quality looks poor, just like VHS quality, color blue bleeding from vertical objects, and so is color red. Its like a TV showing convergence lines needing some re-alignment. Video tend to become blurry or out of focus when zooming in on distant subjects.

Hope somebody can help me fix this camera.

    I was an AV technician, I could perhaps fix or calibrate this camera with some help or mentoring from someone who has experienced this particular problem. If the trouble is highly complicated and needed to be send in, please let me know.

    What do you think of the issue/trouble on this camera? Thanks in advance.- Manlim

    I don't have the service manual. I agree it is vital to the calibration to have this fixed to the original specs. Is there someone who have th service manual and can perform the calibration and what would it cost? thanks.

    Present condition of the VX2000: everything works fine, to the untrained eye, it may look ok but not really. The video output lack of quality is apparent specially when shown on big screen. It is not so noticeable on small monitors. FYI.

    According to my knowledge, Its 2000's model and its MiniDV, 3-CCD, Digital camera with memory stick. Regarding problem in camera, frankly saying, you need service manaul to perform adjustments. Let me know, do you have its service manaul?

    What I see in Manauls, you need Service Manaul, Adjustment Manaul and Special Tools & Jigs to perform adjustments in this model. I dont live in use so unable to help you any more.

How do I make the connections from the Red - White - Yellow RCA Male plugs of the camera to a USB adapter Red - Blue - Green RCA Female to download to a computer? Stumped.

Hello, for the descriptions of the colors (red. green, and blue) of the USB video adapter, what you have is a "component video input" also called YUV in which you can only send color difference signals from a device that has the same kind of output, like a DVD player. So, you cannot plug your cam cable directly to them.
Maybe your USB adapter has another input or dongle in which the colors of the RCA jacks are the same as you have in your camcorder. Red: right Audio, Black: left Audio and Yellow: composite video.
Send me back more info of your adapter, like make and model, maybe I can see the specs and add more help in this matter.
Good luck

I got the vx1000 on bay and as soon as i turned it on, all I can see through the viewfinder is red, green, and blue colors rapidly flashing. I can see the image in the background but the colors are...

These have that problem . I would look on the wide cable comings from the 3 ccd assembly where it connects to the main board. They come loose at that point and need reconnecting. It's easy to break this connector! Be careful if you diy. Larry's Electronics 916-362-8708

It is an old model of 1995 and I'm sure it has problem of leaky electrolytic capacitors. You need to replace all electrolytic capacitors in this camcorder.

Color unbalanced, uneven across the frame

Things to try. I don't promise solutions. Check your Monitor. Reading the description lead me to think of a tube display rather than a chip. Otherwise order a head cleaning tape and give it a rotation.

Trying to import analogue video from VHS

I _assume_ you're feeding PAL video into the MV500i... one of the simplest ways to lose color information is to feed an NTSC (or PAL60) source to a standard PAL display.

Another possibility is that you're losing the chroma signal. I believe this camcorder has a composite (CVBS) analog input. If you're tapping off a SCART connector, make sure you use a SCART to composite cable, not SCART to Y/C (luminance/chroma). Are you using the same cabling with the camcorder as with the TV?

Poor Video Quality

My capture software defaults to capture specs of 720x480x32 at 29.97 frames per second. It previews video at 360x240x32 at 29.97 fps. What resolution is your capture operating at? How about the camera?
