Its probably not the chips that is defective Jim.. these camcorders use those really small pana caps there called and they leak and go bad and sometimes NO NO most of the time cause the PCB to oxide and melts the pcb traces. If when you try to unsolder these surface mounted caps your gonna get a really acid type smaell thats bad smelling and bad for you too. if thats the case its bad. Good luck and please report back if you want more info.

My LCD was first blank(White colour),and now it dosent even work(black colour) help?

Your flat wire / ribbon cable that goes from the LCD display to the main PCB is fractured and split, thus it looses signal and as in your case the split has worsened and you have lost power to the backlight also, which comes from this very cable.
You will need to replace it and it may not come as just the cable but the entire LCD panel.
This is a common fault on many camera's of different makes.

Hi your flexcable between the LCD and camera mainboard is cracked or broken. It must be replaced. We can deliver you a new one if you can relace it by yourself. If not ask an Samsung repaircenter

No sound on my samsung

if you put a old tape in that has sound in it and it does not playback sound then your internal speaker is bad. easy fix and not to much.

dear kwilsey,
just turn on your camera and look at the front side of camera.i.e just note tat your lens shutter is opened. if lens shutter is opened then prob is with your ccd devices. Contact the nearest authorised service centers.
