Samsung VP-D31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Me and my dad both purchased the same camera about 2years ago. Back in April this year I had the same problem with mine where there was a blank screen in cam mode both via the view finder and LCD. I borrowed my dads for a holiday in september which worked find. I recharged it last night ready for use tomorrow for another holiday and this one now has the same problem. Has anyone started a battle with Samsung about this yet?

No its not with the samsung alone. Both of your cameras suffer from defective CCD. I think if the cameras were manufactured between 2002-04 then they must be having manufacturing defect. Contact your local Samsung and ask about the world wide problem of defective CCD that were replaced by almost all the camera manufacturers FREE of cost.

Samsung VP-D31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder recording black screen

I have a brand new VP-D31. It still has the protector on the screen. I acquired this (legally!) but it has no charger,cables, battery or any etcs. I got it from the Police Auctions and was too ignorant to understand what I was getting. The item was obviously stolen from a store shelf - hence no bits. How about you buy it from me?
