Canon mv 700i

Not recording images! Sound only!

    Been wondering for ages what was wrong with the thing. Yes it records sound but won't record images. The screen flashes a red icon at me. So do I just ring canon and tell them and they'll put it right?

    Thanks so much for this! I'm getting onto Canon now! I haven't been able to use my video since just after I bought it!

Camcorder will not show picture records only

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.

Canon mv 700.. records sound but no picture

Make sure the Audio Recording Mode is turned off. Go to Camera settings and look for that option under Audio settings. To properly operate the video recording, the image below can help you.

I get no sound when connected to CD connection

if there is no phono input,you need a pre amp to drive it.the record player puts out 5 mv from the cartridge.
a cd player is 800 mv to one volt output.
the turntable can not drive the cd input.
a phono pre amp also has a 60db gain from 20hz to 1khz to offset the -60 db curve when records are made to reduce the groove modulation.
without the bass attenuation,record grooves would have to swing 4" for bass notes.
google RIAA equalization curve for a description.
