CANON relied on Sony to install their CCD (The image sensor) on most of their mini camera recorders. The mount for this CCD Component is defective. Canon recognizes this and currently, (2009) offers a 100% free replacement of this part.
The effect of the malfuctioning CCD is as you describe, everything works except there is no image captured.
I took mine in and they repaired it, no questions asked, except that I may want a few other things fixed up while they were there. I declined the additional work and it didn't cost me a cent.
Find Canons website and they have a deeler locator there where you can find an authorized repair center.
