Do yuo have an external hard drive connected...that will interfere with the connection sometimes, hdv/dv should appear in solid whilte letters unders stereo1 in the lcd on the camcorder screen, and what version of vista is it and is the firewire cable plugging directly into the pc...if it doesnt work in one port try another in different location on it.

Windows XP & Vista should automatically recognize the camera (hardware) when you plug in the USB cable. You don't need the Sony software.

My canon hv20 hdv camcorder is now not displaying on the lcd, which makes it impossible to playback the videos recorded on the camera. What's the cause & the solution?


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

This may be a dumb response, but is the camera receiving power? You can't open the cage without power, and if your battery is dead and the camera isn't plugged in, that could be the problem. My broadcast students make this error a lot.

This camera works fine with FCP 6. I use it all the time. You need to use the Easy Setup for Firewire basic HDV 1080/60i (or whatever sounds like that). The camera should be connected from it's small connector FIREWIRE port(under back panel cover -- USB port will not work for this use) to either a Firewire 400 or Firewire 800 port (auto-switches to 400Mbps if the device doesn't support 800) on the computer. Cables are available with a variety of connectors for this for under $20 ea (it's digital -- i.e. don't overspend on cables unless you have an actual problem!).

I'm trying to connect my canon hv 20 to my macbook pro, and the computer won't detect the camera.


Connect via USB to see contents of the miniSD card. Connect via Firewire to do anything with recorded video/audio. USB setting may require further fooling around with camera settings to be visible on some computers, since the miniSD card should mount, just like a flash drive. I have one of these camcorders and this all works just fine.
