Customer Question

I have a Sony HDR-CX760 Camcorder. I used to be able to push a "record" button on the lower left hand corner of my LCD screen. Someone borrowed my camera and now I can't get it back. How do I get that button back onto my screen? Also can I use a shootgun mic. on this camera?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, let's start with the basics; have you tried a RESET?

Expert:  Louie replied 10 months ago.

Consider a RESET. A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. If have not been done and should you venture to try: please click HERE. Press on the recessed small button using a pointed object.

May have to be done a number of times.

This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of an internal hardware concern; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose other issues.
