Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460E Digital Camcorder

DCR-TRV460E Digital 8 Blurred LCD & Viewer in Recorder Mode

I own a brand new Sony DCR-TRV460E camcorder since late 2005. I have been regularly using it until 31 October last year. Then I did not use it again until 22 DEcember 2006 when I wanted to cover a family function but was met with a great shocking surprise! I had removed the battery (NP-QM91D) before storing it away and so fitted it on again before I could start recording. To my surprise when I switched on the camera to start setting up for the session, I found that the image in both the View-finder and the LCD was blurred with dirty brownish red and green colors! At first I thought maybe it's the battery and changed to the back-up battery. It was the same! After several attempts of trying to diagnose the problem, I finally gave up and abandoned the recording. I took the camera to a Sony agent but was demanding so much money for just diagnosing the problem that I could not afford. When I went home I tried to play the last recording I made with it and it was playing normally! What could then have gone wrong? Please help I am desperately in need of your solutions.

Dear sir, If u seeing image properly ( Blur image ). In main board or sub board some components will be leakage. This leakage will form, if the camera not use for a long time. If the image is not clear then the CCD may be defective. For CCD failure SONY company will give u free service & spares for this camera model. (only for CCD failure) Best of luck udupi M/s.Prathiksha Electronics Bangalore

The Sony support site has the Picture Motion Browser software: http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/camcorders/sd/d8/d8.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-TRV460E . This replaces the Picture Package for XP SP3, Vista and Win7 (32- and 64-bit). No other OS versions are supported as far as I know.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your support and patronage of Sony Camcorders.

It has recently come to our attention that a limited number of Sony Camcorders that incorporate an image sensor device, CCD Chip, manufactured from October 2002 through March 2004 may exhibit the following condition:


When the Camcorder is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder will show either a distorted image or no image.


We have determined that this condition only occurs to a limited number of units.


In its effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony has elected to offer a free repair to the owners of applicable Camcorders if the image sensor device, CCD chip, causes one of the above-mentioned conditions. Accordingly, customers who have a Sony Camcorder as outlined below and if such Sony Camcorder exhibits the above-mentioned condition caused by the image sensor device, CCD chip, may contact the special call center number below for free repair:
