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.

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 Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Horizontal lines on image

Either screen or ccd sensor faulty. T establish which see if you can can normal playback : if the immage looks ok in playback mode it is the CCD sensor. Either way camera has to go to your agent or qualified repairer.
