    Hi,

    My old SONY Video 8 CCD-TR75E seems to be at the end of its life, after all, it gave me 15 years of wonderful movies and colors!
    However, if possible, I'd like to repair it, purely because I am nostalgic!

    The problem

    If I switch the camcorder on, I see the monitor this way:

    1/3 (on the right side) white, then a black vertical stripe, remaining 2/3 grey.

    If I put it on REC. on the grey side I can barely see what I frame, but completely distorted.

    What do you think?

    Thank you
    Alex

    Probably bad caps.

    Best way to check this is to heat up the unit carefully, if the
    symptoms get worse then chances are there are bad caps. Unfortunately
    the only permanent cure is to change them all.

    Sorry, what do you exactly mean with cap?

    Thanks

    He means capacitors. There are a lot and they are surface mount (SMT) and a
    real pain in the butt to replace (read: expensive labour time). Probably
    best to replace the camera. The technology has come a long way since then.
