Question about Canon HV20 HDV Digital Camcorder
My hv20 was working fine earlier today, but now when i'm in camera mode the screen is just black, along with the viewfinder. Sometimes it plays my footage in play mode but most times it wont. i'm so disappointed because i just bought a wide angle adapter. Please help!!!!
SOURCE: dirty heads
I work for canon and when I get one this dirty I use a tape that has been recorded with used or almost used up. I let the tape rewind and fast forward all the way through. I then use a soft head cleaning tape for 25 secs. If that doesn't work then it might need an adjustment.

Base from the description of your problem it seems that the issue here is with your camcorder since the other unit was detected. There's a big chance that the camcorder firewire connection of your unit is bad , so better have it check from a service center.

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
