My Canon Elura50 did the same. It's a manufacturing defect with the CCD, (The image sensor) mount installed by Sony Corp.

Canon Service centers hounour a full repair of this problem free of charge. You just have to find one close and take it in for "CCD problem"

Incidentally Canon has about twenty or thirty cameras with this same problem. Everything works but there is no image. It's the Sony CCD mount inside Canon Cameras.
Trust me, It's 100% free repair.

I would bet that the camera iris is stuck closed. On some of the Sony cameras, the iris actuator (a small motor-like device) leaks oil onto the two slippery sheets that slide acrossed one another and act as the iris. A qualified tech can pull the iris assy out and clean it. I have repaired many Sony cameras this way. Sony usually recommends replacing the lens assy which is expensive

SOURCE: Images not recording

I have a sony 14E and suddenly it stopped playing and recording. With vertical lines on the screen I knew to clean the heads. No effect on the recording/playing malfunction.

However I persevered and it seems to have worked in it is now recording and playing back. The steps I suggest, with PERSEVERANCE, are :
1. Clean the heads (I did it 3 times in all, with about 1 hour between each session);
2. Leave the camera open (tape section) for about 2 hours and put the camera (with or without tape) in a warm place. (I also had condensation messages).
3. Once it is warm put in a recorded tape and attempt to view it. At first I had "dirty" vertical lines for a few seconds but it cleared and played normally.
4. If Step 3 still does not work repeat 1 and 2. As I said PERSEVERE.
If Step 3 works then try to record. It should work hopefully. If not, repeat 1 and 2 (shortening the "Warm Up" time).
Good luck. I hope mine continues to work OK now. It is to do with dirty heads and coldness I think.

DV-PC recorder


DV-PC Recorder is a Windows XP only application that enables you to record images and sound on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by connecting a camcorder equipped with the DV CONTROL function to a computer using an IEEE1394 (DV) cable. DV-PC Recorder has the following features. 1. You can record movies simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape by pressing the start/stop button on the camcorder. 2. It enables long, continuous recordings, which you cannot achieve with the tape alone. (Approximately four and a half hour's worth of recording will fit on a 60GB hard disk.) 3. You can start editing the movies on the computer right after recording, as the images and sound are saved on the computer's hard disk. (Optional editing software is required to edit movies) 4. You can record movies on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by controlling the DV-PC Recorder from your computer.
