Re: Reference information displayed on screen

There is, simply pres the Eye View finder button a few times, and it should go away. the button, is right on top of the camera next to your custom preset buttons. Also, you can go to the menu, and do the same thing withe the SYSTEM Tab.

Yes, its symptom of dirty/ clogged video heads in camcorder.

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.
