    My son dropped off his SONY Handycam model CCD TR517 hoping I could fix
    it and now I am asking anyone that has knowledge of these for your
    help. Briefly, if I put in a charged battery I can do all playback
    fuctions OK. If I try to access record mode it locks up and does
    nothing and the lcd info display is blank. Also, it will not return to
    playback at this point unless the battery is removed and re-installed.
    I have considerable experience repairing electronics but that dates
    back to when things could be repaired. Does anyone know if this is just
    some simple quirk of this item or is it, as I fear, just another piece
    of hi-tek throw-away junk from the mega manufacturer? I sincerely
    appreciate in advance any time and assistance in answering.
  2. How much was the repair quote?

    Possibly a fault with the VCR/Camera mode switch. Does the camera
    operate normally on Standby in the Camera mode, and lock when Record
    button is pressed? Or does it lock when switching from VCR to Camera?
