Display screen not working.

Hello, I recieved this camera three years ago for christmas but left it in the box in storage for since I got it. I recently began using it but the screen is not working. My husband thinks that the box got moved around too much and maybe dropped. Their is a blue scratch mark on the screen. Should I take it apart?

Its the video ribbon probably inside the lcd screen it is fastened with blck electrical tape not very secure so in storage probably lost its tackyness and came loose everytime you open the door it pulls from its connector and as you close it it goes back in.

Everything works except it doesn't display any video while recording but will when playing back tape from another camera. Records audio like it's supposed to. Camera was in storage for 2 years.

Hello Howard

I am thinking/sounds like that the problem is in the LCD display. How old is the camera, as it been stored in a safe location to avoid any serious damage and/or a dry location. Could possible where the display opens on the camera. May be you could find a local Sony dealer to take a look at it for you.
Please let me know the out come of your camera.

How can I take off old titles like happy new year, when I am trying to record a sport event.

2 ways:
1. The titles come up based on the date. So Jan. 1 will show "Happy new year", Dec. 25 "Merry Christmas" etc. You can correct this by changing the date on the camera with the menu button.

2. There should be a title button somewhere that lets you display each title programmed in the camera. Just keep pushing the button until you find a blank screen.

Hey guys, I bought this a while ago but it has been in and out of the repairs since i first got it out of the box. I was sick for a few years so it just sat in the box. But now I would like to use it, but...

Does not sound encouraging....was the screen always 'black'?
Was that the original fault or something different?
Usually, if the screen blacks out and there is absolutely no picture even attempting to surface it may be the flat micro film connector between the screen and the camera.
Have you tried recording a new tape and then playing it on someone elses camera?
Have you capability to transfer a newly recorded tape from the Sony to your PC?
All this will do is help eliminate the problems e.g. if the tape plays normally on your PC or a friends camera then it is definitely the screen. If not, then could be a myriad of things wrong.

Sound works physical camera works but will not display any picture just a black screen.

it is probably the factory defect. a number of these were sent out with some problem internally that caused the cameras to displaying picture. there was a free repair for it if you just sent it in unfortunately the time limit ran out only a year ago, i was lucky enough to send it in just days before it ran out. aside from that, im really not sure what you could do besides pay to have it fixed.

Message - eject cassette

My mv830i developed this problem as I was going on my first training flight from Redhill Aerodrome and I was absolutely gutted! My moment of glory and the Canon refuses to accept the cassette. Had to resort to SD card recording. Did'nt get much footage using this method. Anyway on arriving home I sought out solutions from the Internet. I tried blowing any possible dirt from the cassette compartment but to no avail. Then I read about the 'drop it on the carpet' method. Instead of carpet, I tried an old shoe box. After about three attempts from nearly 1 metre - hey presto! It actually worked! The camera took the cassette and all was well again. How on earth this method of fixing was discovered is beyond me - but worked it did for me! Hope it does for you too.

Unless somebody comes up quickly with a better solution for you, it may be an internal battery problem, especially if you keep having to set the time. For your local repairer click on this Sony support page.§iontype=Support&
