Question about Audiovox DC400 Camcorder

1 Answer

DC400 Screen only showing slanted multicolorlines

As above, this camera quit working and only showed the multi color slanted lines on screen and can't take pictures or change menus or anything. Would a bad battery or low voltage cause this?

No this is clearly a CCD sensor problem ( CCD generates image in v-cams and still digital cameras ) if the sensor is outputting too much noise then your image will be distorted just like yours is. If the sensor is outputting nothing then camera shows blank screen ( also notice that with this problem you can playback OK ). Replace CCD block.

My Nikon D50 in picture play back mode is giving pictures in multi colour not as pictures ?


I'm not sure what you mean by "multi-colour mode" but this page shows all of the possible playback display modes and describes them. Hopefully this helps you. I use a D7000 which is quite similar and I've never seen a multi-color mode. Nikon D50 SLR Review

Horizontal line with different color exposure above and below line on Canon Rebel t3i


Does this occur only on the camera, or is it visible on your PC during PP operations ?

I have a d80.problem: lcd will not show anything. lcd will show previous taken pictures


Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button?
The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

Convergence lines are SLANTED. Red line is above


Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

did you check the six 3.5 pico fuses that are next to the ICs? They will often be open ( blown) when the ICs fail. Also check the two 5 amp IC protectors on the G board as those protect the two ICs so its possible they have blown also a 5 amp pico can be substituted for the two IC protectors.
