Unfortunately, no. By recording in fast mode, the camera captured fewer frames than usual. When played back at the normal speed, the action appears faster than normal. Because the camera recorded fewer frames, there is no way to make up for the images that were not captured. You could slow down the playback, but the result would be a jerky, jumpy video.
Now, if you had accidentally captured the video in slow motion, you could then throw away some of the intervening frames and recreate a normal-speed video.

The CCD image sensor of the camera has failed. It is the component responsible for capturing the image the camera is focussed on, display it on the screen and capture it. If its malfunctioning you are bound to see problems like these. Getting the imagesensor replaced should resolve the problem

No picture in record mode, only broad band of light


Your assessment of the problem is quite accurate. The image sensor (CCD) is kaput. Here's a link to this well-documented defect. http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

No image during recording -- sharp mini dv VL-NZ50


This problem can certainly be fixed and is not that expensive : the no image in capture mode when you can playback is caused by faulty CCD sensor and you might even have it done free of charge because it is often a faulty sensor that goes in your camera during manufacture. Sony in particular repairs these faults free of charge, but others do too.

Recording


This sounds like the CCD sensor is faulty ( this is the device that generates picture in both v-cams and normal digital cameras and sits behind the lens ). Playback is fine but no image ( or very 'noisy' image ) in capture mode. Easy to repair but one has to put a new CCD block in.

No picture


CCD sensor might be faulty. To check see if you get immage in playback mode ( some old tapes you know were captured properly ) if playback is fine but no image in capture mode ( i.e. camera mode ) then CCD transducer is kaput ; camera must go in.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.

My screen is blank on all modes except playback and setup


If you can playback captured images ok but in capture mode your screen goes blank and taken shots are black then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty and has to be replaced. Nikon agent -if you can find one- will do this for you but it may be uneconomical repair on this entry level model.
