Can't see anything

In the camera mode, there is nothing but a blur which doesn't even seem to be light dependent. The VCR playback is fine in both monitors

Re: Can't see anything

A couple of years back Sony had a recall on this camera because of defective image sensors. I called Sony and got an address to UPS the camera to and got it back 2 weeks later working just fine and got a couple more years of life out the camera before I got the 31:22 error.

My canon camera seems to work fine in record mode. The LCD shows the video and the timestamp, and tape is moving. Yet in playback mode no matter what Tape I use (even if I know the tape has video on it)...

The playback head is dirty. Insert a brand new tape into the drive and perform a record, through the entire tape until it reaches the end. Then play a pre-recorded tape.

In the Camera mode there is no image just a blank screen

I presume you have checked to see that the lens cap is off? You could also make sure you don't have the "Fade-in" function turned on. Do you see anything at all? Text? If you see text, it indicates that the LCD monitor is working and that you are in some mode that is not letting light get into the camera. Make sure you are ion the all-automatic mode. If you see nothing at all, I'll bet there is something wrong with the screen or the wires connecting to the screen. Do you get an image in the viewfinder?
