Question about Canon MV600 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Vertical lines Hi all!!! I am getting colored vertical lines on the LCD and viewfinder. I can just recognise an image behind these lines. It obviously isn't the LCD because the menus show up perfect. It just won't recieve the CCD image correctly on the screen or viewfinder. Thanks

Re: Vertical lines

This is a defect in the CCD ( light sensor ) - check with Canon and they'll replace it free of charge even if the camcorder is out of warranty.

In Camera mode, only streaky vertical lines visible on screen

Its a fault with many of the canons,
they have NOT recognised it,
but you can get it fixed free by a third party company
(cant remember off hand which one soz)

Funny how they do it for free,
as if canon are paying them so they dont have to own up !!!

Red vertical lines/no picture

Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck

Only vertical Lines Appearing

You are one of the lucky ones with a defective ccd, the electronic chip in the lens assembly that makes the image. Actually if you ship this to JVC before October they are repairing this problem at no charge because of a batch failure with this part. Go to to get info. Good luck, magic seadog

Split screen and blurred vertical lines in view finder and LCD

Elakkis, I am sorry you are having a problem with your JVC camcorder. Your camera more than likely has a defective CCD imager which is being replaced by JVC factory service at no charge because of a problem with the Sony CCD chip being used. Call JVC and arrange to send the camera to them. Hope this helps you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (

Image being displayed is all colored vertical lines

I had this problem a lot on Labtops. The problem is that it has been unliquifed in the screen. This means that the screen has been damaged or has got really hot. Also its has been on for along time. LCDs go bad real quick and can be a hassle when you need the infomation in the thing and have no display. When I had this problem on my labtop, I used the external bay to use another monitor so I can work on it. So I say that nothing can be done to fix it. The only way to see your stuff on there is to use the video out on the recorder and try to check your stuff. That multicolor lines you saw is becoming major right now in LCD displays. I hope this solves your problem.
