I have a secondhand Sony DSR-PD170P that has been in storage for a couple of years. I got it out today and it's all in working order apart from what I think is a problem with the lens.
It plays back DV tapes recorded on other cameras fine, but when I try to shoot on it all I get is a weird fuzz that changes when I zoom in and goes blurry when I change the focus. When I record this fuzz, it plays back just the same as it looks in the LCD. Occasionally I get a real picture but it's very blue and distorted (as seen at the beginning of the video).
Anything I can do to fix this?
