Dark screen, no image (holiday disaster! Help please)

My boyfriend is on holiday for 7 days and has just discovered his canon MV700i isn't working properly. He says it switches on but the screen is dark and there is no image showing. Has anyone got a helpful solution? He is skiing and is desperate to record his holiday. Any advice or knowledge would be grately received.

    Just got our canon MV700i out to do some filming for a school project and its like the lens cap is still on. Blackness. Tried the Handbook troubleshooting guide but no luck.

    Any ideas? To get repaired probably more expensive than buying a new one these days!

The CCD problem is a known fault across many manufacturers. Look on the Canon web site for mdetails of where to send it ito get a free repair. That's gotta be cheaper than a new camcorder.

As far as I know that's a problem with the CCD, and it needs repairing by a specialist :(

I have a Canon mv700i and I'm now seeing horizontal lines on the screen in the playback mode (I'm trying to copy an older tape). I'm thinking the heads need a clean? Can I do this myself and if so how?


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced 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.

Screen disply issue


You need to contact your nearest Cannon Repair Centre. I had a similar problem and it was fixed for free as it is a known issue.

It has been found, that in rare case, some of the CCDs, used in Canon digital camera and digital video cameras, have a problem that causes abnormal image output.
Free repairs will be made for affected products in cases where it has been confirmed that the internal CCD wiring has come off.

You can either buy one from CANON directly, which is expensive, or you can look on ebay for a generic device, which is risky (you need one with the correct voltage etc etc).

Dark screen on my video-camera Canon MV700i


I have the same problem, it appears that this camera is one of many cameras that have problems with the CCD (image sensor) have a look at this site for more info www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

I hadn't used mine for about 9 months, when I went to use it the screen was black with a bit of flicker. Canon are still fixing them if you're from the UK have a peep here - https://self-service.canon-europe.com/uk/pages/

Hope that helps

CANON FAULTY SCREEN IMPORTANT READ ME


Only for the brave, on a warrenty expired camera.

Buy a set of jeweller's screwdrivers.

Make sure it is off, with the lens retracted, and remove the battery and SD card.

Remove the 11 screws holding it together

The metal shell is in two halves that can be pulled apart. The rubber socket cover flap has to be removed once one half is off. A rubber gasket round the eypiece lens may drop off - it is easily replaced.

Hold the inner chassis by the edges.

The lcd screen is held by one screw, half hidden under the wiring to the flash - remove it.

Push the wiring to one side just sufficiently to enable you to hinge the lcd screen up on its flexible printed circuit wiring loom.

Underneath you will see the back of the ccd pod, with a flexibe printed circuit wiring loom pinioned under a metal plate with two Y shaped holes filled with brown gunk, and held down by a torex screw locked with some holt melt adhesive, and two further screws inaccessible under the metal chassis to the right.

I hypothesised these were the contacts that become detatched in hot conditions, and (1) tried to shift the flexible printed circuit minutely from side to side using the hole in it (it didn't move appreciably)and (2) pressed down quite hard in the centre of the metal plate, having supported the chassis from below so as not to damage the lens.

I reassembled the whole thing and it worked immediately, with just a faint light smear down the left hand side of the image (the whole image had been completely smeared, then dark, before) which was only noticeable when photographing in dark conditions.

So I took a gamble and it seems to have worked. If it hadn't I was going to break the glue seal on the Torex screw and unscrew and then screw it up again.

Obviously doing this is on your own responsibility.
