Does the camcorder has a view finder ? If you close the LCD and view through the view-finder, do you see anything ?

Yes it does, but in Camera mode its black even with the lcd closed. This only happens in camera mode by the way, everything other mode works correctly

...no picture at both the LCD and view-finder on Camera mode (i.e. when recording). That seems to indicate a faulty sensor. Check to see if yours is a model with such which SONY replaces FOC.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
