Camera control buttons do not work, stop, play etc
The volume control, effects buttons etc do not work either. I bought the camcorder in 2000 & it is in excellent condition. It was working fine while playing back a tape I had recorded then none of the camera buttons would work. The camera works with the remote control as far as play, stop etc goes.The zoom & viewfinder buttons do not work as well. I have cleaned it according to Sony's suggestions & it still has no buttons that will work. I have contacted Sony & all they could offer was how to reset it by removing the battery.

Your flexible control panel cable may have torn
( from loading and unloading ) - if there are
leds ? in yours , the replacement part often
does not have them ( many users miss them ) ;
get an estimate , before committing to repairs
on a 7 year old camera ( starts at $ 50 plus
parts and shipping , here in puerto rico ) ;

It's a common problem with this model. You must change the IR board. This is very easy to do. Remove the back panel of the tv and unscrew/unplug the original board located where the power button, volume/channel, etc is and plug the new one. I bought my IR at Ebay, but sadly have to say that it was not working. Watch out these bargains, :-(
My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.
If you've found a solution, please post it here.
I had the same problem with sony remot control RM-ED002, take remot control apart and clean inside with damp cloth and dry with kitchen towel, thats it now use it! ;-)
When i opened mine it was some kind of moisture under volume and channel buttons, cleaning and drying it helped.
This may resolve the problem. My Treo 755 stopped hotsync some time ago and then I noticed that the volume control side buttons had no effect. On suggestion from this site, I removed the battery for several minutes and then reinstalled it and the phone has returned to normal activity, hotsync-ing the first time and volume buttons working fine.
The remote is not the problem. The switch for volume up on the control panel has become leaky. Very common problem for this generation Mitsubishi. If you don't mind not having the control panel working you can disconnect it and the set will work just fine with the remote. To disconnect the control panel pull the speaker grill, it just snaps off, and remove the front access panel. Once that is done you'll see a cable going to the switches just disconnect it.
plug your cable connection to a vcr "in" then run a seperate cable cord from the vcr "out" to your television (which should be on channel 3 or 4) depending on your vcr setting and use the vcr to control the channel so when your westinghouse freezes and becomes unresponsive you could still change the channel and so on through your vcr and tv acts like a monitor works for me.
N.B be sure to set the volume and so on before it freezes which could be like a 1min window from turning your tv on
