Hi all. Recently got same problem as others with remove lens cap when in camera mode or black screen. It is a known problem with the ccd. JVC have admitted this (at least over here in the England they have). They are doing free repairs until October 2007 even though I'm out of guarantee/warranty. Here's the URL for UK, hope you get lucky. http://www.jvc.co.uk/knowledge-list.php?id=4#0 Regards Tony

I went to Canon's site when I read solution #2 (regarding the CCD Image Sensor) from Windman to see if there were any recalls on this issue. I found that that was!! Please use this link: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=227&modelid=9740&keycode=2112&id=25405 for a Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory. If this is your issue Canon will fix it for free.

If you have DCR TRV460, then try to contact Sony Service center. They have a recall on this product the same problem happened with my product and then repaired it for free for me as it was covered by recall.

A dumb answer but believe me I've had 2 customers tell me the same story and all it was "they didn't remove the lens cap" Another common problem is a stuck iris The early Panasonics were good at this. I've repaired a few but that first one was a killer. I wondered if it was ever going to fit back together so I'd advise a trip to your friendly repair shop and save yourself a heart attack, well at least until they give you the repair bill :-) BMW

Hi if the screens are showing all the features (time, battray...) then the LCD and viewfinder are fine it's possible that the problem is the CCD this is a common problem but its a pretty expensive fix it may be cheaper and better to buy a new 1 good luck

When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.


It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.

Normally there are two reasons for the given problem. 1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or 2). shutter not working. in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD. and in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.
