The symptom you discribed sounds like a bad ccd sensor problem which my scd103 has. If so it will be covered under warranty through Samsung due to a class action law suit. You will need to go to Samsung.com support and fill out a repair request ticket. once you get the ticket #, contact the factory service centre with this # and they will send you a shipping label via email. Don't tell them your lens is not working! The symptom I have is no image during camera mode, but plays back a tape just fine. Sometimes you might see a distorted image if you move the camera just right. After telling them this they said it would be covered at no charge.

Good luck.

Image has lines and pink in colour


This maybe two problems, the pink color hue in the picture and lines from lens shutter problems. Your LCD is still good. You have to replace motherboard and lens.

Make sure the Audio Recording Mode is turned off. Go to Camera settings and look for that option under Audio settings. To properly operate the video recording, the image below can help you.

The CCD image sensor of the camera has failed. It is the component responsible for capturing the image the camera is focussed on, display it on the screen and capture it. If its malfunctioning you are bound to see problems like these. Getting the imagesensor replaced should resolve the problem

My fuji finepix E510 records images with horizontal lines on LCD screen after I clean the lens with 70% alcohol paper. It still record nice images on near images under flash light. work fine for video...


take a close look to the lens, and if is clean, you have two possible problems 1. the CCD part is almost dead 2. the CCD connector is not in the right position, so you will have to open the camera and ensure that connector is properly set and the lock is on.

Flickering image on LCD lens of my Canon S410


By the sounds of it you have a bad chip on your camera system board. If the image records okay and displays okay after the image is recorded. Other than having your camera repaired you may have to use your camera as is.

So the lens opens,
But screen stays dark - can you see any shadow images or is it totally dark?
Have you checked that images are in the card.
Any way there is not repair option just replace it.

Lens


No live view or black pictures, but readable menus means a bad CCD or less likely, possible shutter on cameras equipped with one (more scarce on newer digitals)

Recording


This sounds like the CCD sensor is faulty ( this is the device that generates picture in both v-cams and normal digital cameras and sits behind the lens ). Playback is fine but no image ( or very 'noisy' image ) in capture mode. Easy to repair but one has to put a new CCD block in.
