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?

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.
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.
Hi, how long have you had your camcorder? my reason for asking is that i have the same model, and recently had to send it back to Canon who were recalling camcorders with image problems as there were a batch of faulty CCD cards
Your not fixed Process board to Main board connector properly, if you fixed properly "0000" indication in EVF that will go off. Then you have to check other complents.
Thank u. Reply if any problem.
