Sony Camcorder

This is not a computer question but can anyone help with this problem. Camcorder will not record. Able to view tape with sound but not record. To best of my knowledge it has not been dropped.
It is approx 3 yrs old.

It may be an obvious suggestion, but check that the little lock on the tape is not set to the "save" position.

It happened to me once on my Sony camcorder.

Checked lock, okay. When in record mode cannot see anything.Will record but just blank. Records over picture in tape but just blank.

One final question:

When you are recording can you see the image in the viewfinder and/or LCD screen?.

If you can, then I suspect there is a serious problem. I recall that Sony had problems with the CCD on some of their still digital cameras, (don`t know if this applied to some camcorders too).

Try calling Sony for advice:
