"Murderized"

Ken, and folks,

Sorry to take so much time in responding to your inquiry. I travel out of country a good deal; and, therefore, not available to the web. No. It really is not available world wide.

To answer your question, Ken, about CCD overexposure. I believe there is one common way that this can happen: Pointing the lens into the sun.

In spite of rumor's that you can do that,…… DON'T!!! The register, will overload and damage your chips. If you need a reasonable tech explanation of how light gets to your tape, I would suggest that you read the article in the ASC Video manual. It is quite readable, with out killing your interest.

I would think that the above is not camcorderlady's problem. One solution to narrowing down the cause, might be to fire up the camera using an AC adapter. Than, turn it off, and, replace the AC with your DC battery.
Might not see any difference……, but, you never know.

As always, once you can isolate the beast of a problem, the repair can be made much quicker.


(MURERIZED: a brooklyn expression, (where else), still in use by us expatriates. We learns good there.)

Best.
