Had the same issue, no image when I turned it on to record. I read the previous post and acted upon the suggestion to contact Canon directly. They said no problem, gave me a number of a local service centre, I had to pay the shipping and they fixed the CCD Imager problem and shipped it back free of charge. Now, that's service!!!

Possible CCD problem. There is quite a bit of units that are exhibiting this symptom. After having a tech verify that this is indeed the problem, AND ONLY THEN, I would try to contact the mfr, and explain to them that "in your own experience, that there seems to be an awful lot of imaging device failures." Many of them are made by the same OEM supplier and those defective units have been found in hundreds of different camcorder makes; Sony, Canon, JVC, Samsung, just to name a few. I hope this helps ease the pain...
