Video Camcorder problem

I have a JVC GR-DF550U Camcorder. Something is wrong somewhere between the CCD and the recording hardware. I know this because when you record a movie onto the tape, (it is a MiniDV camera) it has very very poor audio (probably a [good sound]1:3[noise] ratio) and the video has many artifacts in it. The camera is only about 2 years old, and we've hardly used it. JVC wants 300$ something dollers to fix it, and I think that's a total ripoff. Can I repair it myself or have it repaired for less?

    About the audio:



    I didn't mean it had a lot of static in it, I meant that it would have these random bleeping noises and some weird sounds. All of this stuff started happening really suddenly.

    since u didnt mention earlier that these bleeping sounds existed and rised all of a sudden.. this problem is complicated and needs to be serviced by a technician only.

JVC Picuture gets blurry


The ccd block is starting to fail. Thats the chip thats the eye of the camcorder at the back of the lense assy. Its mounted on a small circuit board. You can find the chip at parts.com. Its just a matter of dissassembling the camcorder and removing the chip from the board and soldering another onto it taking care not to over heat the chip. You do need good soldering skills.
