Sony ccd TRV108 NTSC does sound recording only black screen in viewfinders and lens cap is off. thanks battery charged thanks

On these camcorders the "RCA" video jack is a switching jack. This is so the cam will record from an ext video source instead of live video. Try exercising this switching lack by repeatedly plugging in and unplugging an rca video cord. This may be a solution to your problem.

Cannot record due to a black screen

OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more.
If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder.
JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details.

My Quasar VM-L143-C Camcorder screen turns black

if the camera records the video it will be there in the memory of it and you can check it by connecting it with a computer.if the video is in the memory there will be no problem with the recording device and the problem will be only to the LCD screen .if it is so, replace it with a new one which cost you about 35$-40$.if the settings are not correct the above problem will check the settings first and then go for the replacement of LCD .check whether the color of the LCD screen is in the correct level(check the brightness,contrast....)thank you.

Black bars in the picture

For Models: CC4352, CC4362, CC4393. Your camcorder has a wide format recording mode that lets you make recordings compatible with the 16x9 format. When 16x9 is activated, the camcorder records black bars at the top and bottom of the picture to produce the wide-screen (movie) effect. This is also known as "letterbox" recording. Do not use this mode unless you have a compatible 16x9 TV. When played on a regular TV, black bars appear on the screen. If the 16x9 feature is activated on your camcorder and you want to turn it off, press REC/PAUSE to pause recording, and repeatedly press DIGITAL EFFECTS until no digital effects display appears.
