CCD sensor block needs replacing. Sony should do this free of charge. IF you have to pay for the repair it is not too expensive because this particular job requires only +- 1 hour labour and the CCD component is not that expensive.

Then the solution is simple-use Firewire cable to capture video into your laptop.This is the standard hardware set recognized by any OS and most Video Editing software.Simply plug in your cam to your computer via the cable.Your laptop should immediately "see" your cam.The rest is then easy.
Oops...forgot to ask the make&model of your laptop.If it does not have that firewire port built-in.Then you've got quite a trouble...
