This problem may be due to a malfunction of the CCD image sensor in the camera. It is defective in this model and canon will repair it for you at no charge. Here is the link to their service notice. You can call the 1800 no in the article and they will send you a form along with a ups label to send the camera to them.

Check to see if the small lithium battery (size of a dime) is installed behind the battery pack. This stores the date/time when rechargeable battery is low or off.

Should I use automatic or manual while recording?


Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shotâ„¢ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.
