Question about Sony Video Cameras

Open Question

I purchased 2 Sony Handycams, a CCD-FX 230 & a FX 620, the 230 has no camera controls & the camera does not work. the FX 620 same problem

For the FX 230 the camera & its controls don't work, when you switch from Playback to camera you get a white flash in viewfinder then camera does dead. The tape playback part of the camera works perfectly. For the FX 620 same problems almost ,when you push the record button it beeps, the other camera just didn't work. Also the FX 620 playback desk has the problem of no picture or sound when playing back. The FX 230 no problems with playback. I brought one on Ebay & on on Marcari. $9 & $6 dollars, and I got my money back for the $9 one. Maybe they make a cool art piece. The History of Video Art etc.

The lcd and finder view are both black. The

The CCD fault is a known issue with Sony. My F717 was purchased in 2004, and developed exactly the same problem you described a year ago. Just before junking it recently (Dec 2009), I did a Google search and found that Sony will do free repairs. Their website makes this issue clear, and their online fault reporting system worked well in the UK. I got a printable freepost label, packakaged up the camera and sent it off. It came back a week later fully working again at absolutely no charge.

After turning it on, there is no display on the screen. When you operate the zoom nothing happens

If you can still work the controls from the LCD screen and see images from previous recorded tapes, but NOT see any current image thru either the LCD screen or thru the viewfinder then its a faulty CCD Image Sensor. Sony had a bad production run of the sensor chip from 2002 to 2004 affecting products from 2002 till who knows when. This affected other camera manufacturers too since they bought their sensors from Sony. A Sony "service advisory" in October 2005 would fix for "free" anybody coming forward with the problem. This freebie ended in October 2007. Mine went just last month. Cost to fix by Sony...$160 + shipping. There are quite a few non-working handycams on EBAY for an average of $15. Seems to me this was big enough to be an Official Recall.

I don't know which Sony Handycam you have but, some have output RCA jacks on side. Usually two R/L audio and one video. Plug audio jacks to amp's video of audio "aux" input. Some Handycams have input/output switches,-- observe.

No picture

The motor circuit on most handycams has it's own fuse since it draws more power then the rest of the camera combined.
The fuse will only be a tiny white blip on the circuit board about 1-2mm in size.
Safest option would be to have a technician take a look at it since they can be stubborn to even get apart, let alone track down mico fuses.
