Video Cameras - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues

Unfortunately, I can find no reference to that particular model. Have you looked in the manual ?

Dear Annie Laurie,
I sympathise with your problem - unfortunately you have posted your query in a forum dealing with video cameras, so, unless you intended to film the process of laundrifying your garments, choosing a different forum (and, indeed, giving more in-depth information concerning the machinery and the fault) might get a more useful response. BTW, I suppose you have checked the manual for that error code - and also that the door is closed ?

If it hasn't dried out by now, then you are SOOL - sorry.

Maybe it didn't like you shouting at it. Means condensation has formed within it, and it needs to be gently dried out - airing cupboard for 48 hours, something like that.

DCR-TRV33 Free Repair by koertd - 3/9/08 3:45 PM In reply to: Sony DCR-TVR22 – tape stuck by willibo Thanks to all. Ready to trash my DCR-TVR33, but found the cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif800-222-1669cb_transparent_r.gif number. While holding, I found online support at:
(I guess several trips to Hawaii and Fuji didn't help the humidity/temperature issues!)

The friendly Sony representative had me reset the camera and then offered to have the problem fixed for free, including shipping.

see this forum here

I am sorry I am unable to locate one for the DVR530 but I was able to get one for the DVR550 which (I believe) is the same thing with less zoom and/or memory. It's worth a download, CLICK HERE

Yes. What you need to do is physically remove the Hard Drive from the DVR and use a duplicator to create an identical copy of the drive so you will always have the original drive backed up in its original state. Amazon sells “external HD Duplicators” just make sure when you clone the hard drive you clone onto a drive that has the same size storage ea. 500gb to 500gb NOT 500gb to 250gb because it has to match in size to duplicate it, if you ever put the copied drive back in the dvr it will be in the exact same state as when you took the original out to make that copy... does that make sense?

Since the public can't buy parts you must send it in for an exchange unit.

HDR is a clever piece of trickery that takes the best of two images that are taken at the same time with one press. What is does is takes the best contrast from the dark areas and the best contrast from the light areas and joins them together so you get one perfect image for contrast, brightness and detail. If yours has a line through it, it means it is switched off. Better to have it on.

But what you really need to understand is how and when to turn HDR on. It all depends on the situation, so here are some things to keep in mind.

HDR will improve many outdoor and landscapes scenes. Because these settings often have both dark and light areas, you will often lose details. Turn on HDR to compensate.
HDR is great for making the most of dim lighting. Just make sure you turn off the flash. It won’t work well with the longer exposure.
Because it is taking several different images, HDR is slower. So if you are capturing a moving object, or you are taking several photos in quick succession, you should probably turn HDR off.
HDR will eliminate shadowy or washed out areas. So if you are trying to create a certain mood, or photograph a silhouette, you should turn HDR off.

Beyond that, experiment! Now that you understand what HDR does, it’s up to you to see how it affects your photos. Some photographers make their whole living shooting HDR images, while others never use it.
