No power when I turn the unit on


  1. Verify whether or not the date and time appear on your Brother machine's LCD. If anything is displayed on your Brother machine's LCD, then it is most likely receiving power.

    1. If your Brother machine's LCD is blank, continue toStep 2.
    2. If your Brother machine's LCD displays a message other than the date and time, please refer to the FAQ about the message being displayed for further information.
  2. Verify the Brother machine's power cord is connected securely to the power outlet. If you are using a surge protector, extension cord, or power switch, disconnect it and plug the Brother machine directly into the wall outlet.
  3. If the Brother machine is turned OFF, its LCD will be blank. Please make sure the Brother machine is powered ON by pressing and holding theOn/OfforPower Savekey. This key is located in the upper-right corner of the control panel.
  4. If your Brother machine's LCD is still blank, connect it to a completely different, known working power outlet. If the Brother machine powers up, then the problem is related to the original outlet.

    -OR-

    Confirm the power outlet is working by plugging another known working device (a lamp, radio, etc.) directly into the same outlet. If the other device does not work, the problem is related to that power outlet. If a wall switch controls the outlet, verify that the switch is ON.
  5. If your Brother machine still will not power on, please contact Brother Customer Service.In Case You Still face Problem and Need Online Assistance Then Please Follow Us For On :

My SONY DCR-DVD405 Viewfinder has stopped working. When the LCD panel is closed, the viewfinder should show the view and the controls, but it is showing a blank grey screen. Please advise.


There is nothing user friendly on these, if your not factory trained on this type of repair then it should be done by someone who is. The view finder is a small LCD and is not meant to be repaired, but they can be replaced. Get an estimate and decide if you want to repair or live without it,

LCD has gone blank


Hi this is tech crazy

Based on the information you have provided, it appears that you may have
encountered this issue. To determine if the CCD (image sensor) is
working properly, please follow these steps:

1. Insert a memory card with known good images on it into the camera.

2. Power the camera on to the Playback mode.

3. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel, and observe
the LCD.

a. If the images are displayed properly, please proceed to step
four.

b. If the images are not displayed, or a "NO IMAGES" message
appears, please ensure that the memory card contains known good images.

c. If the card contains known good images, and the issue persists
with a second memory card, the camera will require service.

4. Switch the camera to the Camera mode. You may use any shooting mode
(i.e. Auto, Manual).

5. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel.

6. Point the camera at a well-lit scene and observe the LCD and/or
viewfinder. If the scene the camera is pointed at appears on the LCD
and/or viewfinder, the CCD is operating properly. If the LCD and/or
viewfinder remain black, the camera requires service


Hope this solution helps you a lot
