Got wet and won't turn on

Try this old trick... take out any external things such as battery etc, and put the whole lot under some uncooked rice...
The rice absorbs any water. Leave it there for a few days.
If the circuitry isnt fried, then it could come back to life, ive done it before with phones.

You can also try it with a very VERY low oven heat.. Like 60C,( 140F)

How to use a sony handycam dcr-sr80 hd as a web cam?

It is not possible to use the Camcorder as webcam using USB interface as the Camcorder does not have the USB Streaming feature.

You may connect the Camcorder to the A/V input of the Computer to use it as webcam.. However, it is required to use a software which is compatible for capturing videos from A/V interface to use it as webcam.

Use sony dcr-sr40 as webcam

unfortunately for this model, it would not be possible to be use as a webcam. it uses HDD as its recording media. it may actually work if you have: a/v capture card installed in your computer that connects to the a/v jack of the camcorder.
2.a webcam application software that supports a/v connection
basically,you would need a camcorder that that has a usb streaming feature and a computer that has an OS that supports it (i.e win xp),or you can use ilink (dv or ieee1394) connection So you should be using a digital-8 or dv works perfectly as a webcam.of course, your webcam software should be designed to work with whatever connection your using.hope this info helps.tnx:)

it's not exactly the same, but this website shows a pretty foolproof way on how to fix it on a different camera.

i fixed the touchscreen on my hc26 with it on the first try. i put a piece of paper folded a couple times under the ribbon cable connections where it meets the screen (against the plastic frame for the screen, under the blue cable), and put a piece of cardboard against the circuit board to give it more pressure from that side. works like a charm!

Using sony dcr-sr36 as a webcam

Unfortunately is not possible directly - Your cam do not support USB streaming... But You may use any cheap video capture device like Pinnacle Studio movie box or similar to connect Your camera via S-video cable because Your camera has an analog output. Only one requirement - the capture card must have an S-video input or simply RCA video input. It's easy - connect video out and audio out of Your cam to the capture device and then connect USB of capture device to Your computer.
Good luck!
