The screen is black when i'm trying to record video, and the screen isn't black when i'm set to take pictures, how do i fix this? the video does record sound but there is no picture..


Hi,
I think your camera's head is not good, first you try to clean it with cleaning cassette, if there is clogged dirt on it you have to clean several times, then check with a good cassette.

Can't record or take photos


Yet another CCD sensor problem ( in your case it is outputting nothing so you get blank screen as opposed to heavily distorted picture which is also very common). Properly manufactured sensor lasts 10 years + so you should have this repaired free of charge if you can. Replace CCD block.

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.
