I suspect an issue with the CCD and the associated image processing circuitry. Please consult a Sony Service Center to have the camcorder serviced. Thanks!

The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling camera to remove the lens block and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Error code 61:00 indicates a problem in the focus mechanism. The most likely cause for this is a lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling camera to remove the lens block and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Camcorder displaying Error 61


this is a lens error code.. In most cases iether the focus or the zoom motor is jammed. Pretty tough to free sometimes . But I useully will try it before ordering one or the other . They may not be available seperately but only as the entire zoom lens unit.

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.


E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.
