Question about Canon MV650i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

Canon MV650i Starting camera into recording mode, the start-up procedure halts and there is only blue screen with "canon" logo. In servise center they adviced me to either replace electronics of optics or even whole base plate. Is it really necessary ? Why they just do not find a broken conponent on the PCB ? Should be much less expensive... Thanks,

Re: Canon MV650i

Sounds like CCD sensor problem ( it sits behind the lens inside your camera ) and it should be replaced . With this problem you do not need to replace the lens unit itself or any other parts. See if you can have it done free of charge because these sensors when properly manufactured should work fine for +- 15 years...obviously a faulty one went into your camera.

Cassette removal from dead Canon MV650 Camcorder

I just solved my own problem by disassembling the camcorder until I had access to the little motor which operates the eject mechanism. It sits on the corner of the mechanics subassembly, close to the cassette. By applying about 3.5 Volts DC from a regulated power supply to the two motor contacts, it started to operate (test which direction it needs to go by trying both polarities) and lifted the cassette out of the play position and ejected it. Only since the tape was still wound around the drum, I had to use a thin tool to turn the cassette hub in order to tighten the tape a bit. Then the protective cover of the cassette closed and I could slide the cassette out of the slot by hand. Bingo!

Canon MV650i Mini DV

I had the same problem a few days ago. I tried two different camera shops and they couldnt help and could only offer to send the camera back to Canon. I then decided to try changing the back-up battery (£3.50) and the flashing red light was the back up battery, that has now gone however I still have the black screen or a series of vertical coloured lines, which is obviously a different problem!

Recording stopped working

Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman
