Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I just got a Sony CCD TR61 camcorder. The camcorder looks completely brand new. When playing back tapes and watching through viewfinder, it is very fuzzy for a second or two and then goes blank. Also when in record mode, I cannot see anything in viewfinder. I've blown compressed air into it and run a head cleaner 3 times but nothing has worked. I shined a light into the lens and it looks like aperture opens and closes fine. Any ideas?

Hi,
There is chance that your settings are just off. Set your settings to AUTO and then try again to view in viewfinder. If you're still unlucky, then there is some problem in camera, You need to take to service center to get it serviced. It will be a problem in CCD sensor. It will cost you around $100 to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

No display in viewfinder and LCD


i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.

When i record and play back video i have no sound


If you are playing the tape in the camcorder, are you sure the volume control didn't get accidentally turned down or off? The control is the thumb wheel on the back of the camera below the viewfinder. See page 22 of your manual. If you are playing the tape in another VCR there is some other problem.

My camcorder can play old tapes but won't record


Hi,
Your camcorder Sony DCR-HC20E has bad ccd imager problem and that part will be replaced to have live view to record on tape.
I can provide you ccd imager part number info if you want to repair it by yourself.
CCD Imager replacement in this camcorder requires expertise and fair skills of soldering parts in PCB.

Tape Wont Play


My advice is that you should by a cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!
