View finder not functioning properly

Hi guys, the LCD's view is great but when I look through the view finder (especially with the night shot function on) everything is dark and blurry with a red hue? any suggestions or fixes to this problem would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, and thank you, that takes care of the bluriness but everything is still red when viewing thru the viewfinder? When looking through the LCD everything is colored like it has always been. Two really different views for sure. The red hue I get thru the viewfinder is sort of like viewing with the "sepia effect" on but instead of a light brownish hue there is a weied shade of red/orange hue? Now I am starting to occassionaly get some green horizental lines flashing thru the viewfinder? Something must be shorting out or maybe just wearing out? What do you think? Thanks again!

You have to focus it using the round knob on the lens side...see it?

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

Sony TRV308 Camcorder is not picking up light when recording


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Do your videos come out dark when you play them back? Or Is it dark while you are recording?
If it's dark while you are recording, is it dark in the viewfinder, or the LCD screen?

If your videos come out dark when you play them back, check the manual exposure. Hit the exposure button and turn the sel/push execute wheel to change the exposure to lighter.

If you are looking through the view finder to record and it's dark, check to make sure the window is clean.

If your LCD screen looks dark while your recording, put the power switch to player, hit the menu button and scroll down to LCD, select it and turn the select wheel to brighter.

I had to guess at what your problem was due to the information you provided, so I tried to cover the most obvious. If I failed to answer your question, please comment and be more specific.

Hope this helps, and thank you for coming to FixYa.

Hi,Try adjusting the LCD brightness. I guess you can do it by pressing the UP button (may be different in your camera).

Hope this works, :)

Just call 1-800-222-7669 Sony Support. They will send you pre-UPS label and you mail your camcorder to Sony support. They will replace the LCD View finder for free. I did it about a year ago.
