Re: further info on eye pc view
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: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?PRODTYPE=1,24,26,66,9,70,5,72 If you need any further assistance please let me know.

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.
How long have you owned the unit? How long has it been doing this? Do all other playback functions work just not record? Once I have more information I will be happy to assist you further so please don't reject my solution until we have solved your issue. Thanks, Lee

i have a jvc GR-C1 camcorder. When i press record i can see it recording through the view finder. When i play back what i have recorded it shows what you see on an emply tape, nothing. Can anyone help me. Thanks.
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!!!!
-Press ‘Play’ on the camcorder and review the footage on the 2.5” LCD screen
-Connect the DVD-Camcorder to your television using the supplied Audio/Video cables
-Download the file to your PC using the supplied USB 2.0 interface cable(not available on DZMV730A) and view it using a Windows MPEG Player application that supports DVD recording format (.vro file extension).
-Finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc and play it directly through a home DVD player.
