Camcorder wont show images

The camcorder will not show any thing, there is only dim light coming through and a grey screen when ever you try to record, playback works fine.

This sounds like the iris is stuck almost closed. You can try gently tapping the side to attempt to release the iris. If that fils to resolve the problem, the unit should be brought to a servicer to rebuild the optical block.

Dark screen- No images- some shadows horizontally


If you get a blank LCD, dimly lightened by a whitish back light, then the LCD display eis either faulty, badly connected, or the ribbon connector to LCD is defective.
The camera must be taken apart, ribbon cable tested, and eventually replaced and adjusted.
If all contacts on ribbon cable return continuity (cable is fine), then LCD is faulty, and must be replaced.
Althought the job is not too difficult, an user without experience may damage the camera in attempting this repair.
My first suggestion is always taking the unit to a camera shop.

No image in the viewfinder or LCD screen when try to record...


I have recently had what I think is the same problem. I wrote to a supplier in the UK to see if they could diagnose it from my description. My camera is still not fixed as yet (as I have not sent it off yet for fixing), however there initial analysis was that it is 'Drive PCB' problem and a replacement part would cost £38 + labour + tax. I am not sure what the Drive PCB is, but I have the same blank/grey screen when trying to record but playback is OK. My camera is also about 2 years old.

LCD screen goes plain grey


i think it's the case of damaged flexible cable to the lcd screen from the camera. a replacement will do the job
