Re: canon mv700 Camera displays an error code

I have one of these. Sounds like you have a fault. Try removing the battery and any tapes. Also you might want to try and replacing the penny size battery it has which keeps the time and date up to date.

When did it last work and what did you last do with it. eg. if you've taken it out of a cold storage such as a loft and then into a warm place you might find that it fails to work because of condensation build up in the internal circuits. Keep it it a warm place for a while and see if it makes any difference.

How can I connect my Canon Camcorder MV700 to my computer Acer aspire L3600 ?

Please refer page 118 of the manual of Cannon MV700 available from this website.

You can connect camcorder with Acer Aspire using a USB port and cable.
But this interface only allows transfer of still images from the SD card on the camera. It will not allow video images to be transferred from the tape.

Some models of Acer also have flywire interface (IEEE1394) and also SD card reader. You can use these also to download video images from the camcorder.

My digital video camcorder mv700 displays a black screen on record when operating in play mode it displays no card.please inform me of nearest service canon centre.

Have you accidentally switched on the view-finder? In this case the LCD screen will automatically switch off (usually to save battery power)

Also have you accidentally switched your camera to still-shot camera mode, or something else, so the camera asks for the memory card in playback?

I have had this camera for around 4 years now. It works fine. I basically plug in the firewire connection on my camera switch it on to playback/camera mode then plug the other end into to my computer my operating system picks it up fine without any problems. It doesn't require any drivers windows will auto install any drivers it needs. Not sure why you are getting this problem.

Removing the display completely from the screen

look for a Display button, or through the menus.
I believe the MF means Maual Focus.

Switching from auto to manual focus

AF/MF (Auto Focus/Manual Focus) * The AF/MF function works in CAMERA, M.REC mode only. * In most situations, it is better to use the automatic focus feature, as it enables you to concentrate on the creative side of your recording. * Manual focusing may be necessary under certain conditions that make automatic focusing difficult and/or unreliable. Auto Focusing * If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus. Manual Focusing In the following situations, you may obtain better results by adjusting the focus manually: * A picture containing several objects, some close to the camcorder, others further away. * A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow. * Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car. * People or objects moving constantly or quickly like an athlete or a crowd. Follow These Simple Steps To Set The Manual Focus 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button. M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus. Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again.
