Re: Blank screen

Resetting your camera will not help ( I see this problem every day and in my experience it cannot be cured by resetting your camera ). It looks like a faulty CCD sensor and it will have to be replaced. It will cost +- $ 200 to have a new CCD block put in but get a quote first.

Re: Blank screen

Might as well buy a new camera for $200 bucks.

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
