Question about Canon DC100 DVD Camcorder

Canon DC100 LCD screen fades out

Hi! I have had my Canon DC100 for about 6 months. Within the past week. LCD screen fades to a white or greyish cast and the lines distort slightly. This occurs within a few minutes of powering up the device. It starts up fine and then will do this no matter what function it is performing. If it is powered off and then started again, it is still distorted. After it cools down, it will be fine again for a few minutes as described above. I would greatly appreciate any and all help! Thanks!

Re: Canon DC100 LCD screen fades out

You might need a new lcd you could open and check the flex theres four screws holding it on when you get them off you pry by the bottom with your nail and gently pry it apart it will seem like it doesnt want to come off because there are four claws holding it together just try one side and if that side doesnt budge then go to the other side and try and then you will see the flex use a pair of tweezers to pop up the black piece holding the flex on be careful when you do this step take the flex out and put it back in with the tweezers and gently push the black piece back on sometimes thats all it needs theres also another flex at the other end theres a service note about that flex rubbing against a piece of metal thats holding the circuit board on and causing the lcd to short inspect the flex and if its ok you need to put a piece of tape over the flex to prevent this hope this helps

I just bought new discs for my Canon DC100. The

It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.
