Question about Canon MV600 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
This problem came on suddenly and only occours when recording. When switched to record mode, the viewfinder and the lcd screen is completely black as if the lenscap were still on. The screen information: Rec/Pause: W/S: Tape Remaining: etc. are all present but it only records complete darkness. Playback (of previously recorded material is perfect and I have tried all camera settings and new tapes to remedy the problem but to no avail. If anyone can help I would very grateful. Thank you.
GUEST! Do you happen to have their number handy? I am in Australia but going to the UK for a wedding - and I will be in Manchester - apparently 1 day by express post away from Plymcare Devon - and obviously, have the same problem (I totally blamed my clumsy friend for killing the camers - it just died in his hands - now I owe him a BIg apology!) :)
I'll check in again!

Thousands of us have had this problem with Canon MV600 camcorders, and now they have aknowledged there is a problem and are repairing them for free!! Get in touch with Plymcare, Marshall Road, Devon PL7 1YB (sorry didn't write their number down). Or just remove battery and tape and send it to them - you'll get it back within a week, working like new, totally free. Just got mine back and filmed my 5 1/2yr old for first time since it went off on her 3rd birthday!

When you zoom in and out is the lens moving, if its not then quite possibly the flex has come loose or its the mainboard, thats the only two things that can cause your problem. i am a canon repair tech for video and it should be sent in for service sorry.

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.
