Question about Samsung Compact MiniDV Digital Camcorder
I have 5 year old Camcorder. This will not record any new tapes, LCD screen is white/grey. It will play an old tape, when the LCD is fine in colour etc. Seems like a lot of problems on these Samsung models!
Any help would be appreciated.
Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck

MiniDV cameras have two video heads on the rotating drum, which read and write the picture in broad horizontal bands. When one head is not working, normally because it is clogged by dust/dirt/tape residue, you see broad bands of noise across the image occupying exactly half the total image area.......
