Sony camcorder manuals typically include troubleshooting tips, as of 2015. The company provides troubleshooting tips for models such as 4K Handycams from the FDR series in the operating guide. Troubleshooting tips for other camcorders, such as Action Cam models from the HDR series, are listed separately in the handbook.
For some products, such as older, analog camcorders models still on sale, Sony provides a scanned version of operation manuals that include troubleshooting tips. Online troubleshooting articles are available on product-specific pages under the How To and Troubleshooting section on eSupport.Sony.com. Online troubleshooting and support articles are also available for newer camcorder models.
