JVC 700 dv: Both the monitor & view finder are pitch black, I can't see objects in front of the camera through the camera

This 700x dv was in storage for a while. I plugged it in, charged it, now the view finder & monitor are pitch black. I can't see objects. It normally doesn't need a video tape or memory chip to see objects on the view finder & monitor. I tried increasing brightness, turning off fade to black, and rebooting by removing the battery. Is there some way I can fix this without sending it in for repair? Thanks

Sorry, The bad news is you need to send it to JVC factory service for repair. The good news is they will fix it for free. It has a failed ccd which was a mass prduction problem. Go to www.jvcservice.com. You'll see your model number in the list. Just follw directions from there. Good luck! magic seadog

White Screen. When I turn my camera on, it has power but, the display is white and you cannot see anything through the view finder.


hi,
did you check the picture through the view finder ? if it is clear, then there may be snag in the monitor, normally the connecting cable to the motherboard become break, if so should replace it.
if the picture is visible when you turn the monitor to either side, then you can confirm the fault of the cable.

Hi ive got a galaxsee tasco telescope but im having trouble seeing anything at night, i've took all the caps off lined up on a star but its just pitch black can you help thanks.


1. During the day, point the scope towards an object and align the finder scope to the telescope.
2. First object at night should be the moon. it will verify your finderscope alignment and you should have a clear view of the moon.
3. Use your lowest power eyepiece (largest number in mm) and point the finderscope to a star. The star should be in the center of the eyepiece.. If not, adjust the finder until it and the scope are centered.
4. You can use your higher power lens on the star nd it should still be in the FOV (field of view)
5. Scope may need to be aligned (collimated). Instructions on this should be included with the scope

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.
