Question about Samsung VP-D31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

No display in record mode on Samsung VP-D31

The display or viewfinder operate fine in playback mode but when swithched to camera mode they remain a grey colour (as if the lens cap is still on, which it isn't!) The CCD does not seem to be picking up an image.

    Many thanks techman - I switched it on to try your suggestions and it seems to have started working again on its own!! Maybe it was stuck closed as you suggested, if the problem re-occurs I will give your suggestions a try.

Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck

    If it happens aga you can tap a little on the end of the lens to see if it will loosen up the iris as thats what it sounds like nowe you tell me its working again.in

Samsung VP-D31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder recording black screen


I have a brand new VP-D31. It still has the protector on the screen. I acquired this (legally!) but it has no charger,cables, battery or any etcs. I got it from the Police Auctions and was too ignorant to understand what I was getting. The item was obviously stolen from a store shelf - hence no bits. How about you buy it from me?
