Sony handycam DCR-HC-32E records only in blue and red

Ive used this mainly for nightshot mode. But recently i wanted to do some outdoor video in daylight and it is doing something very strange. images are over exposed and greens and yellows are missing from the video. the image looks grainy too. its not the LCD display (we have ran some checks with that and its ok). As an eg if your videoing trees they actualy look as if its autumn and as if its melting... a bit like stalegtites. checked the exposure and you can improve it slightly turing the exposure down but the actual image quality is terrible can anyone help? The cameras isonly just 12months old, ive never dropped it.

Can't turn off nightshot on my handycam help!!!

Option 1:

Using the NightShot:

1. First Set the POWER Switch to Camera, Slide NIGHTSHOT to ON.

2. The NIGHTSHOT indicators flash on the screen.

3. To cancel the NightShot mode, Slide NIGHTSHOT to OFF.


Option 2:

1. Let us try to reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

2. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

3. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DCR-SR42_Nightshot

If you shot the videos in dark with night shot on. There is no way to convert them to look like day. But if you use a editing program like Sony Vegas you would be able to tweek the video to look simi normal.

NIGHT SHOT USED W/ TOO MUCH LIGHT MAY HAVE WRECKED IT.

"Nightshot" mode removes infrared filter from light path, fixes exposure to 1/60th second and sets iris to maximum.

Probably bad CCD, possibly could salvage from another camera.
Cameras are easy to take apart, but ribbon cables are VERY delicate and difficult to remove from connectors on main board.

My suggestion is to buy another camcorder, which uses the same tape and to use the old one to rewind tapes and for video transfers.
