Cannot view recording

I have a Sony Hi 8 CCD-TR98 camcorder. I can play back previous videos, but when I record I see nothing. It does record sound though.
I read the post about the CCD chip, Is that the problem?

No that is not the proble. In the recrding mode it does record the images as well, but the images are absolutely unclear and does not show any color.

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.

Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.
