Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC105 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannot record when i turn the camera on, i get a sequence of beeps and an arrow pointing upwards appears and does not leave the screen. Also, at the same time as the flashing arrow, the letter and numbers: C:31:23 in the upper right hand corner also flash. I cannot record or view what I have already recorded (no playback). Really need your help. Thanks, John

Hi! i have a cannon ixus digital camera. It got wet about a year ago when i was at the beach, now the problem is every things okay except when i capture a photo nothing appears on the screen no image at...

Try and press the display button (on Ixus a square with a right pointing arrow) several times to see if your images appear at any time.

Your problem may be as simple as inadvertenly pressing this button into the off mode.

If that does not work, try to recharge your battery, reinsert it and turn the camera on again to test your LCD screen.

Since you haven't descibed any error codes coming up on your camera, I suppose it isn't that bad.

If this does not help you may have to get your camera repaired.

Good luck

When I try to set the time on my intex 8110 I can set the time & when I leave it for 10 minutes it always goes to flashing 94. Is there something wrong with the pump or maybe it's possible I'm missing...

that sounds really weird. There is no code 94

Try locking it manualy

hold down arrow till beep
now hold up arroe till beep
now with quick pushes set desired hours of run with up arrow
now hold till beep on down arrow then hold down on up arrow till beep
the unit is now locked and should start it could take upwards of 10 minutes
If all else fails you can call intex with a valid receipt up to 2 years of purchase and they will replace it
Hope this helps

Red Arrow on the top of the screen

It is simply a missed call symbol. If it's like an arrow pointing upwards on top of a phone receiver picture it means that your calls are diverted. You can change it in call settings.

Getting accurate color

1) Turn the Mode Dial to MANUAL MODE (Red camera icon with an "M") 2) Use the Arrow Down on the ENTER Button to select W/B (White Balance) 3) Press the center on the ENTER Button to select and adjust W/B (White Balance) 4) Use the Arrow Right (once), then Press and Hold the Arrow Down. Note: Continue to Press and Hold the Arrow Down. There will be a pause as you reach the bottom of the common preset conditions. Then a new "hidden" option will appear. 5) Once PRE SET appears, Press the center of the ENTER Button to select it. 6) A Special screen will appear. Point the camera direct at something WHITE, like a piece of paper, a white wall or a white shirt. Regardless of the lighting conditions, the camera will accept this "white object" as the new starting point "base of reference" or "True White". 7) Press the Shutter Button to program the new "True White" setting. 8) Press the center of the ENTER Button to accept and continue photography. These new settings will be saved as PRE SET True White conditions in Manual Photography Mode until you change the settings with another selection. This will not "go away" when the camera is turned off. These settings do not impact Auto Photography Mode.
