The camera has not been used that much but used to work OK. Now, it is not possible to record - the screen looks black but does pick up light when directed straight at a source, this is displayed as a white band across the screen and there is no resolution.
The camera plays back the black background and white bands as described above - it does shoe "lens cap" at the start of recording but this goes after a few seconds.

Re: Unable to record
Apparently this same problem exists on many different models. I have a JVC grd72u. I called JVC @ 800-252-5722. I selected the "Corrective Action Program" prompt from the automated attendent. I spoke to a customer service rep. They are aware of the problem and are fixing it for free, but only until 12/31/07. I suggest you call ASAP and get your name in the computer. If the problem is something besides the CCD sensor, they will call you with the estimate to repair.

there are two possible problem of your camera..1 may be the iris is not opening..try to look at inside of the lens you should see the iris will open when you turn off and on the the camera at the camera mode..if the iris in opening the 2nd problem maybe is the image sensor is deffective..in this case you have bring it to the service center....
first check the iris of the camera if it is
opening,you will see this when you look inside the lens of the camera
when you turn on and off the switch at camera mode if the iris is
opening....if the iris is ok the second problem may occurs of your
camera is the ccd image sensor....
your lcd is a touch screen so if it is cracked ?
you will not be able to control the camera ' s
functions , from there - go to sony website for
latest software updates ( and nearest service
center , if lcd is damaged ) ;
if it is only recording bright light sources then it must be working fine outdoors in broad day light. if so, it means the auto iris of your camera has stucked to minimum opening. was the camera lying idle for long time. try pointing the camera towards low light and bright light with quick moves.some times by doing so it gives a little jerk to the mechanism and it starts working, or lightly patting the camera on the lense side may solve the problem. otherwise let the repaires earn some money.
does the screen isn't working either when you record and when you play tapes? if you record a tape and you play it on another camera, does it look good? if both answers is "yes", chances are screen is faulty.
however, if screen doesnt work (remains blue or black) only when playing tapes but functions well while recording, it may be solved by using a cleaning cassette.
