Question about Sony HVR-A1E HDV Digital Camcorder

Large viewfinder only works when reversed &

Sony HVR-A1E. The large viewfinder only works when reversed & folded into the camera body. It does not work in any other position. I presume the wiring or contacts are intermittent.As a result I cannot use the large viewfinder when filming - as the angle is inconvenient. OK for viewing on playback.

The flexible board (as it is called) that takes the signals from the camera body to your screen is cracked. You will eventually find it will stop working altogether.
Send it off for repair.

HVR-A1 Optical zoom is not working, but digital zoom works ok-


The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling the camera to remove the lens assembly and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My LED screen has gone black how do I get it back?


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and will require disassembling the camera and LCD assembly to remove and replace the flex cable. This can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.

It sounds like you are using an aftermarket (non-sony) battery pack. The camcorder you are using probably requires the Genuine Sony 'Infolithium' Battery pack (usually in the box of the camera). If you are getting this message with the proper battery installed, i would contact SONY

How can I avoid camera moisture condensation on my Sony a1e camera, it keeps saying turn off for one hour or eject tape and is doing this constantly.


Camera gives Moisture error sign if it really have moisture condensation inside or its moisture sensor itself got defective.

if moisture is inside, blow hot air in camera mechanism for 5-6 minutes by hair dryer (not so closed with mechanism) and check / test.

If problem still exist it means moisture sensor is defective and i know its Sony high-end model camera and know how to fix it yet I would recommend to take camera to Sony Service center for proper repair.
