Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC101E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony DCR PC101

The vertical and/or horizontal hold on the touchscreen of my camera is loose. Can see fine thru the viewfinder but I lose the function of the touchscreen. Seems like tightening a screw somewhere should do it but don't know how. Please help.

How do I get trivia crack to show vertical on my screen not horizontal.


If you hold your phone upright while taking a video, you've surely seen the horrific end results. When you try to play the video back on any other display, roughly 70 percent of the screen is occupied by black bars.



I normally scold people for this behavior, as it makes for terrible viewing. But, in a more proactive approach, the makers of crappy-vertical-videos-app-auto-levels-your-iphone-vids-horizontally-0150499/">a popular iOS app have brought their wares to Android in hopes of finally finding a cure for Vertical Video Syndrome.



Horizon is a video-recording app with a twist-quite literally. Using your phone's sensors, the app ensures that you're always filming in landscape mode regardless of how you hold your phone. With your camera's viewfinder locked onto the horizon, you can turn your phone every which way and the video will remain level.

Check its vertical output section circuit for any component damage or loose soldering terminals. Check the solder terminals of the vertical output IC. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying al little more fresh solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjacent solder terminals.
If this do not help you, replace the vertical output IC. Lose of Vertical Scan is the problem of your TV.

Answer ID 16497 Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? --> With some DSLR cameras, a normally clear LCD screen is used to display Auto Focus area brackets in the viewfinder. When power is supplied to the screen, you may sometimes see a faint vertical line appear in your viewfinder. This is perfectly normal and is just part of the finely etched circuitry used to power and illuminate the liquid crystal segments of the AF area brackets.

Sony DSC-V1 optical viewfinder has a horizontal line in it


It shouldn't be there, but as the optical viewfinder is completely separate from the photographic light path it's nothing to worry about either.

Normally it's caused by either a hair or fibre which has somehow entered the viewfinder (rare) or more commonly by a fine scratch across the front window to the viewfinder. Also check the rear viewfinder viewing lens as the same damage could occur there but as that lens is relatively protected it's unlikely.

Any further fixing involves dismantling the DSC-V1 and possibly sourcing spares made of purest unobtanium so if the camera works perfectly well then leave the screwdrivers safely in the toolbox for now.

Screen Line


I don't think that this is a defect. I own an A60 and there is an horizontal line running through my viewfinder. I use my LCD screen more often then my viewfinder, so I've never seen the blur. However I'm pretty sure that your camera is fine.
