It's your CCD chip. Believe me, I hassled through this whole thing with Samsung. The CCD's in alot of cameras (Sony, Samsung etc.) came from a bad batch a couple years back. The other manufacturers offered free repairs, Samsung denied the problem even existed. I found out about it when my camera went "black" while trying to record. Pre-recorded tapes played fine but when I tried to record only the audio came through - no video. I had to work Samsung over from top to bottom and finally got my unit repaired at no cost. They told me "no" alot of times but I kept asking to speak to higher ranking people and finally talked some sense into an "executive customer service" representative after about a 45 minute discussion. Call 1800-SAMSUNG and don't give up until your camera is fixed at no cost to you!

When i chage the option of oFF to CAMERA nothing turns on and when I change the option OFF to VCR the screen just show strange symbol and SP and it does not work


just so you know, your camera model was included in the list for what we call the "ccd program". this program has ran for 5 years and unfortunately ended march this year. sony gave free repairs for cameras and camcorders affected by the defective ccd imaging sensor before the said date. issue with the camera shows a black or distorted screen in camera mode. but the you should still be able to see the indicators on the screen. when switch to vcr you should be able to play back previous recordings that you made. better to really make sure its a ccd issue, play a tape that you're sure contains a movie recording and play it, then set it to camera mode and see if you get just a black screen. if you try recording using a tape, you may see nothing but should hear the audio part. if this is what's happening we can be sure it's a ccd issue. if your camcorder just won't turn on in camera mode, maybe the power switch turned defective or it can be other parts of the unit that stopped working.if this is the case, then of course, your unit may require service to address the problem.hope this info helps.thanks:)

My g9 was playing video clips very fast. i changed the setting back to "standard" and can record/play new videos correctly; however, the video clip that i previously recorded before i changed the setting...


I believe the setting you changed set the RECORD method, not playback. The video is recorded that way. There are some Video software out there that can rerecord a video at a slower pace, but do you want to spend the money? Try Ulead.com for a low cost program.

No video on the camera viewfinder or miniscreen


At seventeen years old, it is well beyond the expected lifespan of any domestic camcorder. Replace it.
