Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV68 Camcorder

1 Answer

Exposure wheel does not seem to have the proper range.

Everything works great except the exposure wheel. When you push the exposure button the bar comes up on the screen and the pointer goes side to side as you turn the wheel. Only the right 1/3 of the bar seems to have any effect on the picture brightness and as a result the brightness cannot be turned down enough to shoot outside when it's sunny. You get a washed out picture even with the pointer set to the far left. Works fine inside or when it's cloudy outside. Any thoughts?

Can you please advise what video recording settings to use on my AG HMC 40PJU so that the videocamera will automatically adjust the light exposure entering the camera? I video a lot of stage plays and...


At the theatre prior to the performance, ask the lighting director to show you one of the brighter performance stage light configurations and allow you to set the camera's white-balance. (It's easier to deal with a little under-exposure in post production, than it is for over-exposure.) Then adjust the exposure accordingly during the performance.

Preparation/Planning: Either at home or in the theatre, if you practice setting the white balance and then adjusting the exposure for varying levels of light, with your camera connected to a video monitor, so you will see it more clearly in real time, it will help adjustments during filming the performance more fluid.

Also consider using a lens filter. Practice various combinations to see what suits different light levels and gels for best effects. When possible, if using a stand alone camera (not cabled into a control room set-up) I prefer using a video monitor for each camera person to give better ability to manage adjustments of camera settings as needed.

Sony TRV308 Camcorder is not picking up light when recording


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Do your videos come out dark when you play them back? Or Is it dark while you are recording?
If it's dark while you are recording, is it dark in the viewfinder, or the LCD screen?

If your videos come out dark when you play them back, check the manual exposure. Hit the exposure button and turn the sel/push execute wheel to change the exposure to lighter.

If you are looking through the view finder to record and it's dark, check to make sure the window is clean.

If your LCD screen looks dark while your recording, put the power switch to player, hit the menu button and scroll down to LCD, select it and turn the select wheel to brighter.

I had to guess at what your problem was due to the information you provided, so I tried to cover the most obvious. If I failed to answer your question, please comment and be more specific.

Hope this helps, and thank you for coming to FixYa.

No display on flip out screen


I have a Sony DCR-TRV30. Your camara is probably similar. On the bottom left outside corner of mine, there are two buttons, labeled "exposure" and "program AE," and a small thumb wheel above them. Set the indicator to "camera" and open the screen. Push the "exposure" button and a light grey rectangular screen with a minus sign on one end and a plus sign on the other will appear near the top left corner of the screen. Rotate the thumb wheel so that the small black square in the rectangular screen will move from the "+" side towards the "-" side while the image on the screen gets darker.

Camera Records w/wrong exposure-- pink & green overexposed effect


It could be that the CCD unit is going bad.  You should take into a camera shop to get a professional look at it.  Usually that type of taping is caused from a bad CCD.
