I was dinning with some friends and i was recording the moment, and that time the camera was fine. I turned it off and put it into my bag that was in the floor. The camera was fine, it was between my foots, but at the moment i turned it on again (5 minutes after) the image (on lcd screen & viewfinder) was very colorfull and grainy, like if the exposure was on it maximun, and the infrared on all the time.
I pushed all the buttons on the camera trying to restore the image to where it was, i even tried reseting the camera and nothing happened. The image was like red, blue, green, and grainy. I think it's a problem with the lense or something.
I'll apreciatte any help from you guys, because honestly, I don't know what to do anymore.

Sound like a malfunctioning
CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong
images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures,
and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash
suggest check this link for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD and next contact your Canon service. Istrongly suggest(taking intoconsiderationthe age of yourcamera) to

First see if the grainy feel is evenly spread over the video or screen , Have your front lens checked up by yourself for any dirt . Do clean it with a swab dipped lightly in surgical spirit or cleaning solution .Check for the settings in your camera for display resolution and recording resolution . Change both to the maximum/STD and you will be ready to go . How to do it can be found from your owners manual .If you find it difficult to get the settings , save your data to a pc or cd and then reset your camera to factory settings , which is easily findable in the menu - settings
You are in luck. Sorry for the trouble but your model Elura 50 still has the CCD advisory from the factory for free repair. Send it in for CCD advisory before it is too late! When all functions are working but has distorted image in camera mode is due to CCD chip. Good Luck -James. for further assitance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
I have seen this many times, and it is usually always dirty heads, and it is a bigger problem when you record in long play. If the heads were dirty when the tape was recorded, then that is how the image was stored and will stay that way. So make sure you clean the heads before an important recording. Try cleaning them again with a new cleaning tape, and it just might come good if it was originally recorded fine.
the ccd image sensor is the problem of your camera....it have to be replace with the new sensor....i do not know if it is still free for replacing the sensor but the model of your camera is one of sony the recall product....because the ccd image sensor have a factory error..
Same problem with my Sony CCD-TR416 recently. Know what finally worked? With camera playing a tape, I picked up the camera and tapped it sharply on a solid desktop. Had to do it 3 times. I held the camera with two hands, one on each side of the camera, raised it about 3 to 5 inches off the desktop and then quickly tapped it on the desk holding the camera parallel to the desktop so that it solidly hit with all of the lower surface of the camera body.
I know it sounds crazy. I swear it worked. I had tried cleaning the heads over and over. I examined them with a 20x loupe and they looked fine. I doubt that the problem was oxide and debris build-up on the heads.
I planned to order a new head/drum just to see if I could manage the replacement procedure by myself (I'm a chronic do-it-yourselfer/experimenter). I guess I don't need to do that now.
Why did the slam technique work? My guess: Inside the rotating head, there must be some sort of electronic track like the brushes of a motor or something similar.. Some sort of debris must have been involved in a corruption of the transfer of impulses from the heads. A few taps and it broke free.
If banging it on the desk didn't work, I was next planning to remove the drum to check for bad connections. I'm sorry I didn't have to do that.
Nevertheless, don't listen to everyone when they say that the "heads must be dirty." Nope. With the loupe, I could see mine were sparkling clean. But, I still had those multiple horizontal rows of short white streaks obliterating the video image. Tap. Tap. Tap. Now they're gone.
Try it. Couldn't hurt. Though chances are, you won't see this. I'm posting 6 months after your original post. I just happened upon your post as I researched the problem through Google. Neverthelss, someone might see my response someday and maybe they, too, will get luck with the tap, tap, tap procedure.
The JVC C-Format camera can have one of two seperate problems that cause this symptom. The connector to the CCD comes loose and causes loss of video. Also, the CCD has been a source of problems for some time now, JVC will repair this for you free of charge if it's the CCD causing the problem.
Good luck to you.
