I hope somebody may be able to help me with this!
I have an out-of-warranty Sony DCR-PC330e which has given me excellent service until it started having a rather irritating problem.
As I hold the still photo capture button down to get it to focus, and just prior to taking the photo, the camera acts as if I have accidentally pressed the manual focus or backlight buttons - and goes into manual focus mode or sets up for backlight conditions - or both. The appropriate manual focus and backlight icons appear on the bottom left of the screeen. I can correct the problem by pressing the focus and backlight buttons until the icons disappear again.
This happened occasionally to start with, but has got more and more frequent as time has gone on. So I have some questions:
- Has anybody else experienced this?
- Have you found a fix?
- Has anybody else had experience of getting Sony to repair a camera? Is it very very expensive? Or do they provide good customer service for this sort of thing?
Any responses welcomed.
