Question about Canon MVX40I Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a Canon MVX40i Mini DV Camcorder. I have just purchased an aftermarket lip stick camera, with its own 9Volt power supply and two female RCA connecter leads. As per the instruction booklet that came with the lipstick camera, when I plug the camera into the RCA leads that i would use to playpack some recorded vision on my TV, i get nothing. I am only getting the image seen through the camera lense and not the lipstick camera. I have plugged the camera directly into the TV/AV input and it works perfectly so i can only assume its a setting on the camera i need to change, but without the manual i just dont know what to do next. Any ideas...

make sure you are using 4 pin to 4pin firewire which looks like this:
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.

if this doesnt have USB interface, you need a USB Audio and Video Combo Adapter. something like this http://www.computercablestore.com/USB_Audio_and_Video_Combo_PID1600.aspx for optimum video performace, use S video connector. let me know if you have question.

Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.

First thing, clean your battery contacts, both on the battery, and on the camcorder. Make sure the battery is charged fully (measure it if you have a voltmeter). Make sure your power adapter is putting out voltage (again, measure it if you can) Try a spare battery, if you have one, to make sure the first one isn't just dead. Other than those things, you could have a faulty or broken power switch on the unit. That's about all I can think of offhand.
