The recording mechanism itself was damaged in the fall and that is why it can't record new ones and also sounds like the reason the eye piece is not working the only option you have for a high tech piece of equipment like this is to have it serviced I can help you locate local repair with your zip code(or city) or you can locate the closest authorized service center here:

Sony DCR-HC18E, the backlight on the LCD screen will not light up, it does record but you can't see what you are recording and can hardly see the on screen function / menus. Pressing the backlit buttons...


Hi,
If you close lcd screen in its position, do you see image in eye piece (view finder) ?
If yes, then replace flexible ribbon connecting wire between camera board and lcd board to get picture in lcd screen.
Let me know if you need part number of flexible ribbon wire.
Thanks.

MITSUBA DV9002, WON'T RECORD TO DVD OR DOWNLOAD TO COMPUTER


Ok, discovered a few things. You guys are absolutely right. I looked in the side compartment for the DVD, there is nothing in there to do the recording, so yes....it is for looks. The "lens" or what you think is the lens in fact is just the viewing tube to sight the picture. The actual lens is the little dot below the tube. Cam is very light sensitive and will pixelate badly if you try to zoom in on anything.
However, I did figure out that you have to have the knob on the side set to USB in order to pull pics off camera. I agree with the above post.....it is a piece of junk!!!!
