Hello, my name is*****'ll be happy to assist you. Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.- Does your CCD-V90E camcorder still playback the tape/cassette?Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No the camcorder does not seem to function now. I have tried charging the batteries and also using the direct power via a transformer!
Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for the info.CCD-V90E is quite old camcorder and have seen many got leaky capacitors on circuit boards that made it non-functional/ inoperative, replacement of all bad capacitors will hopefully resolve the problem.This kind of work needs lots of soldering work with proper tools and expertise. Labor of tech would cost good money so in my opinion this camcorder would not worth to spend money on time on its repair and there are many Sony video-8 camcorders available around 30 to 50 Pounds over Amazon that can be used to transfer video tapes to computer. need to use video capture device to connect the camcorder to computer for video transfer into digital format then can make/burn DVD disc on PC, please check following link for price info... trust my input will help you out.
