Very often these older camcorders have internal batteries that give out so you need to plug in the power card and that should at least let you use it using the charging system. It may take awhile before some juice is picked up by the old internal battery and then try it. You may be able to buy a new rechargeable battery for it on eBay.

If you mean the counter reset button, it's the third button on the top row sheltered behind the flip-out display. See the illustration on page 82 of the manual.

I just bought an i- link cable (4 pin to 4 pin) and I cant capture videos using sony DCR- HC35e in windows vista. How do I fix this?


The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer. Open the Windows Movie Maker Application, select the option "Capture" from the File menu and follow the on-screen instruction to transfer the Video to the Computer.

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a deep study of the manual there are two reset buttons. One on the remote (pg 8 #4). The camera reset is next to the tape eject button. (pg6 #25). Hope this helps.

My camcorder doesn't work


For Models: CC4252, CC4352, CC4362, CC4392, CC4393 You need to reset your camcorder. Follow these steps: * Remove the power source. * After one minute, gently press the RESET button with a nonmetallic pointed item until you feel a "click." This resets the camcorder to the factory settings and erases the date, time, and custom settings. * Wait for at least one minute after resetting the camcorder to attach a power supply.
