Can not get picture to show on screen

We try recording and play back an we are getting no picture, we have sound but nothing else. Tried all trouble shooting and nothing is working. Also is there supposed to be a memory card with this? Is it just a malfunction product that we should return? Also it says to remove lens cap and the cap is already off. It is just a black screen.

SOURCE: will not record a picture..

I called JVC @ 800-252-5722. I selected the "Corrective Action Program" prompt from the automated attendent. I spoke to a customer service rep. They are aware of the problem and are fixing it for free, but only until 12/31/07. I suggest you call ASAP and get your name in the computer. If the problem is something besides the CCD sensor, they will call you with the estimate to repair.

Apparently this same problem exists on many different models. I have a JVC grd72u. I called JVC @ 800-252-5722. I selected the "Corrective Action Program" prompt from the automated attendent.

It sounds like you may have your vcr connected via composite cable. Check the back of your VCR and follow the cable to your TV. You should see a Red, White and Yellow connection on both ends. The Yellow connector is the video.

Here is an image to help you find it:

The hard drive for the recorder is bad. That's why nothing plays during playback. The DVR can't get the video off the hard drive. You'll need to send the recorder in to be repaired and the hard drive replaced.

This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

When camcorder is turned on the screen shows red or yellow screen


I have the same problem of picture distortion when recording on my PV-GS200 camcorder. It's due to a faulty CCD block, which you can read about on various websites. I can play back pre-CCD failure tapes without a problem. Panasonic recalled quite a few GS200 camcorders with specific serial numbers in the US and Canada, and replaced the faulty 3-CCD chip free of charge. I just discovered this tonight and intend to ring Panasonic tomorrow, as the camcorder - bought new - lasted only two years before the CCD fault became apparent. Obviously, the camcorder was not of merchantable quality.

Sound but no picture.


if you are able to playback previously recorded cassette and the picture is perfect then its not the head. then the problem is with the image grabbing section i.e. the CCD. May be its damaged and needs replacement.

Sony F55 Recorded Display


The filename (e.g. DSC0012.jpg) shows the image number, the filespec shows the date and time recorded. Most software will give you document info about resolution of the image. I wouldn't worry about what the battery status was when the shot was taken or how many other images were on the Mstick. I guess I'm not sure what you need.
