Question about Sony HDR-XR200V High Definition AVCHD Camcorder
I have the Sony HDR-XR200 camcorder. When I open the view finder, the camera is suppose to automatically turn on and the lens cover opens. The lens cover opens and shuts multiple times and them stays only partway open. An error message comes on telling me the cover is not open all the way and to turn it on and off again. Sony wants me to pay for the service on this fix eventhough the camera is less than a year old. Only 6 months and used only a handfull of times. What can I do to fix the lens cover short of taping the thing open?
You have two options, replace the motor that opens and closes the lens cover or remove the lens cover shutters all together, and use a 30mm lens cap.
