I have a Sony DCR-TVR255E PAL camcorder which has been working fine until now - tried to use it at the weekend and the viewfinder and screen are completely blanked, just as if the lens cover is on, only of course it isn't! Any ideas? Thanks Pat W

If you are not able to see anything in view finder then its the problem with the lens assembly or with your CCD.

this will need a service by the canon service center

    @CMV9
    please read that view finder is blank. still you think problem is in LCD?


  • dewan nafees ahmed Aug 29, 2008

    this is a problem with your CCD or with your lens assembly sir.

    if you have a proper expertise with the camera i shall give you a guide to open a similar camera which will help you to open you camera.

    else you will have to take this unit to the canon service center. there is nothing much you can do in this case with out proper expertise.

    thank you

Please make sure you have it on the right setting. If you do and it does not fix it. there is a small board in the camera that will need to be repaired,that controls the lcd screen.

Can't see how to play Hi8 tapes on this Sony dcr-trv340e pal camera


It's a Digital Hi8. Your tapes are Analog.
But it should play Analog also.
In the menu play with "PB Mode" settings.

Hi,
You camera has problem of bad CCD Imager and this part will be replaced.
DCR-TRV460E is PAL model and I assume you are in UK.
Sony UK has free of cost repair scheme for subject problem in few models. Please check Sony CCD Support for free repair details.

Hi,My Sony digital8 dcr-trv140e is playing back in black & white this has only just happened other wise the camcorder is fine


If you are playing NTSC signal format cassette in your camera (model number shows it is PAL camera) picture result might be in B/W. go to camera player menu and select NTSC playback on PAL tv. Color will be there.
