I left this camera outside one night. Now, when I open the part that swings open to turn on the camera, the camera turns on, however I don't get any picture in the view finder.

I would like to attempt to repair this camera myself.

Does anyone have any idea what part should be replaced?

I have in my notes I should install a new base assembly for this camera. I think a camera repair person told this to me. But it has been some time, so I can't be sure.

Would someone knowledgeable please tell me if they think it is the base assembly that needs replacing. And, also tell me how difficult is it to replace that part.

I live in a very rural area. No company is nearby for me to take the camera and ask them for an estimate and what needs to be done. So, I will have to do this myself.

Thanks

Left outside. Moisture condensed on the electronics and probably corroding the circuit boards. Best bet is to try and dry it out. A folk remedy people try is to keeping it in a warm place in a plastic bag with a dessicant. Uncooked rice is said to work. Remove battery. Wait a week.

If that don't work, throw it away. I still think these old tape cameras are good, but the world has moved on to flash based cameras.
