sony dcr trv 19 camcorder problem

by deadsic / November 26, 2004 11:04 AM PST

I've had the sony dcr trv 19 camcorder for 11 months now and after two monnths of disuse, i turned it on today to find that I couldn't get any picture on standby. I recorded a little bit of footage on a blank mini dv tape and played it back to find that all I could get was audio and no picture. The LCD screen is just black and yet it displays all the functions and seems to work properly. I then used it to record for the length of a mini dv tape and when I played it back, all I got was the audio. Furthermore, I switched to another mini dv tape with prerecorded data on it and played it in the camcorder. This time everything played, even on the LCD screen. Do I have to get a cleaning cassette or should I get it checked out?
