    I have a Sony CCD F55 that was given to me. Upon turning it on, I
    looked through the viewfinder only to see the picture flipping (like a
    television with it's vertical hold out of adjustment). Is there an
    easy way to fix this problem, or will it have to go in for serious
    surgery?

    Most likely bad caps or some other components in the vertical deflection
    circuits in the viewfinder. If you are familiar with troubleshooting TV
    circuits, have the service manual, the service tools, and are able to work
    with SMD components you can service this. The factory service people would
    most likely change the circuit board because of the labour cost involved for
    the time required and the parts required to do the fix.

    If you are not experienced and equipped for this type of service, you would
    be best off to get an estimate from a Sony service rep.

    Is this the F55 8mm camcorder?

    That thing has to be around 20 years old.

    Probably dried up caps but I would be surprised if you found anyone to touch
    that thing for repair.

    If that is all that is wrong with it, I'd just live with the rolling.

  4. I assume this is an old analog recorder. You can probably get a new digital
    model for $100 or so more than what a repair would cost.
