Green Image - Can't WB

I am working with a 2100 whose image appears green tinted in both the viewfinder and LCD. Previous recordings seem to play back w/accurate color but new recordings still look green. All users presets that have been reset and both auto and manual WB tests yield the same result. I think one of the chips is fried- any possibility of something else?

    I sent it in to Sony and it was covered. Thanks for all your help!

    Our company DCR-VX2100 is suddenly plagued with a pinkish/reddish tint in the view screen, and the video comes out with the same color. My boss has tinkered with all the buttons plus reset the camera with the battery removed, but it is still showing and taping in pink. Could it be one of the "chips" or "CCDs" has gone out?

    Camera will not white balance.

    Tapes recorded on otehr cameras play fine. Tapes recorded in the vx2100 aquire a green tinge which shows up when played in any camera

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos

Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully

No image on LCD screen

It sounds like you're receiving partial information on the LCD screen and that the image sensor isn't sending information to the screen.

If you know the sensor is working by recording some video on an SD card and being able to view the recorded video on your PC, then there is a disconnect between the LCD and the image sensor.

If you are not recording video to your SD card and only get black images or no files, the image sensor is damaged.

If you are recording video, but no image appears on your LCD for internal viewing/playback, you can try a firmware update if one is available from, but this is a discontinued item so there's not much available for support.

Hope this helps!

Image green tinted.


Photo appears saturated green when set on manual setting

The image you selected for Custom WB is probably inappropriate - it may be shot somewhere else with different lighting or not enough of the image is white/grey. To do a proper Custom WB, take a picture of a white or grey card in the same lighting conditions as your subject. Go to menu, select Custom WB and choose that image. Then set your WB mode to Custom (if it's not already).

When you move to another site to take other photos, you must change your Custom WB image to another 'current' one. As the sun progresses through the day, your Custom WB will need to change as well. Auto WB will, in most conditions, be able to deal with changing light if you prefer not to keep updating your Custom WB.

This same thing happend to me awhile back. Camera seem to be dead for several weeks until one day I tried turning on and then off the night vision. The was the usual click inside the camera and all was well after that. I still use the camera.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
