    I have a Sony Handycam model CCD-F301. When it was put away it was working. Now after sitting for about a year it doesn't work. The tape eject works but nothing else. The view finder does come on. Any suggestions?

    hi there
    welcome to the forums :)

    was it stored in a dry place ?
    maybe not as dry as you thought ? and come of the mechanical bits have ceased up a bit ? ---- disassembly and lubrication
    I assume you did fully charge the battery before trying the unit ?

    just some initial thoughts

    The view finder comes on, but you see nothing in it?
