Question about Sony Video Cameras

1 Answer

Lens screen stuck open and no image on LCD view screen.

The camera powers on and off but that is it. When the camera is on, I can not record or playback, as the LCD screen stays a solid dark blue/gray color with nothing on the screen (it is not picking up any images through the lens to feed to the screen). The lens screen now remains open constantly. How can I get the lens screen closed when it is powered off? And how can I get images (while recording or playback) to appear on the LCD screen? Thank you.

It is jamming, the only really fix is to have it repaired, that costs a lot and it is sometimes better to just replace the camera.

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).

Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

I have sound and can view previously recorded videos on my camcorder. However, on Christmas morning my camera doesn't record or view images. It just records a black screen with white lines. The li

The recording head is probably the source of the problem and will need to be replaced, other than putting a dry cleaning tape or better still a new blank tape, allow it to play right through, it may work.

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
extended.

Problem with canon a420 digicam

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Note that your camera will not be able to take 15 second exposures, as per the above "fix". Instead, place the camera in manual mode, turn off the flash, and take the exposures in a darkened room. This should give you a couple seconds, just enough time to open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are flashing.

No images on LCD when trying to record

I have the same problem I did not open the camera yet to fix the issue but after gently hitting the camera lens i came to this resolution
Go head and turn on the camera in the recording mode. With 2 fingers squeeze of the camera where the lens sticks out. Right by the switch between close shooting and far shooting. Now squeeze the lens really tight, try it in that same area and the lens should make the connection to the LCD screen. I had this problem after 1st month of my purchase, if you can give back the camera and get a new one or another brand. If not these instructions do work for me so I hope it works for you
