I'm having several problems with my 18 month old HDR-CX350v.
1) When the camcorder has been on for 5-10 minutes (slightly warm), and is in movie recording mode, pressing the photo button (dual capture) causes the camera to hang on trying to save the photo to internal memory. There is a little square icon with an animated line showing that it is saving to memory. Unfortunately, the icon never goes away. You can still record in movie mode, but you can't take pictures or turn off the camera. The only way to turn off the camera is to remove the battery. This issue happens when recording both to internal or an external SD card
2) Intermittently, the camcorder will turn off during recording, This mostly happens when the camera is slightly warm to the touch. When I turn it back on it says "recovering data".
3) In some cases, we have recorded choppy movies, with quite a lot of stuttering, mostly towards the end of the session
I'm speculating that as the camera gets warm, it has trouble keeping up with storing the information to the internal memory and that's where the error occurs.
Anyone experience these issues? Is this a common problem for this camera. Anyone ever try to open this camera up?
Thanks for reading!
