Question about Sony Handycam HDR-XR520 High Definition Camcorder

1 Answer

There is a continual mark that appears on all playback of video and pictures. Lens and playback screens both have no marks or scratches. Mark appears slightly lower on pic playback. Which leads me to believe there is a fault within the lens itself as there is a reduction in screen size between video and pictures. The mark is at the top of the screen left of center and is best described as a slight darkening in a semi circular shape that is approx 6mm across on the camera screen.

One yellow, one pink, and one blue spots appeared on my tv screen.


The set if projection which model here is, has arced and now each of the three picture tubes used has a tiny permanent burn mark on its screen.

That is what you are seeing, the set uses three picture tubes with screens like the old tv sets===the coating has been burnt in each, want to prove it, remove rear cover and cover any one of the three lens and that mark on one tube will go a way.

Not fixable.

This is not something that you can clean from the outside. It is probably on an inside element of the lens, close to the CCD. I would send it back under guarantee, along with some prints of photos showing the mark.

5D-Mark II screen flashes with reflecting objects


No. It's simply a menu setting to show you where potentially overexposed highlights in the final image will be. The function can be set to show shadows or highlights.

I don't currently have a manual to hand, but if you can't find how to turn it off in your own manual then report back and I'll have a thorough rummage for one.

Error 99 on screen cant take picture intermitant


Error 99 is known as Abnormal Mirror operation. Follow the link for help;EOS-1D Mark III/EOS-1Ds Mark III: AF Accuracy Adjustment
EOS-1D Mark III/EOS-1Ds Mark III: Abnormal Mirror Operation (Err 99)

It should be noted that the AF accuracy adjustment advisory is in addition to the previous EOS-1D Mark III AF mirror adjustment service notice. Free repairs are being offered for customers affected by the "Err 99" mirror problem, and Canon is also providing free AF accuracy checks and adjustments for customers experiencing problems with soft focus when using any but the central AF point.

Finally, Canon Japan has published a new manual entitled "EOS-1D Mark III AI Servo Auto Focus Manual" aimed at helping owners understand and get the most from their AF system.

DVD player stops frequently during playback


Yes first try to clean the laser with a lens cleaner. If that does not work you can then try to take off the cover and clean off the lens manually with a slightly damp cotton swab and alcohol. After that turn around the swab and dry the lens with the dry side of the swab. If that doesnt work then it Probably is out of alighnment or the spindle motor is bad, and is most likly not worth the bench charge for an estimate.

there may be two reasons for this problem. 1. may be a defective or broken CCD. 2. the shutter is not working may be due to broken flex circuit cable. in any of the case you have to get it fixed from a professional camera repairer
