Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC1E HDV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

My Sony HDR-HC1 NTSC will not power on.

In the midst of recording, the power shut off and the LCD screen and the view finder went black. The only response that I get when I try to power on is a white flash of light every 5 seconds. I have tried it with a fully charged battery and with the electrical cord plugged into the machine.

SOURCE: HDR-HC1 power keeps cycling

I had this exact problem, and the cycling would stop after about 30 sec. and then function properly. I believe a circuit was confused, mainly because I used an older battery and let it run out till the batt was dead - accidently - and when I put in a fresh batt, it no longer cycled and works perfectly to this day.

Now if I can get my computer to recognize the camera via firewire, I'd be golden.

HDR-HC1 flashes when recording outside only but not when recording inside. the LCD screen blinks light & dark. thanks john


This is a fault in the electronic aperture control and will probably cost you $800 if you have it repaired by Sony. However, There are many qualified independent repair shops that will do the repair at a discounted price.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have it repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.


If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com.
