Re: mini dv camcorder

CCD sensor failure . Shortly you will have only blank screen in capture mode. Should be replaced by your agent free of charge.

Blue screen

the video ribbon is probably not secure in its connector and as you open the door it is pulled from the simple housing it connects to these cameras are absolutely terrible the lcd screens will always fail because of a design defect in the ribbon and its routing and fastening.Inside the lcd screen to secure it they use electrical tape as a fastener so ridiculous.

Mini dv

you should rewind the tape before playing
if not, then maybe the overwrite tab is open which means to cant rewrite tapes, and you wont film

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.
