Question about Canon MV600i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When i switch my camera on, i can see all the settings displayed but it is on a black backround, i.e. no image appears on the lcd screen or through the viewfinder, yes i have removed the lens cap. i therefore cannot record any images but i can record the sound. i can replay and view previously recorded stuff on the screen, through the viewfinder and onto the television. can anyone help me with this problem, thanks. i hadn't used the camera for some time and the problem began as intermitant, it would be black for a while then it would flicker into life and i could record, but now the problem is permanent. jim
Could be one from a batch with faulty CCDs - check out this fixya link (solution 2) - http://www.fixya.com/support/t115316-canon_mv30 - it's copied from a page at imaging-resource.com - my MV600i was out of warranty and I sent it back to Canon at the end of 2007 and they got it going again free of charge within the week - unfortunately within weeks a very similar fault appeared and now they're trying to charge me for the repair !!! even though they say repairs are under warranty for six months -
