Pv-l453d no picture from lens to lcd blank screen ?

Your device has the option buttons on which to select recording by observing the process from the user observation scopes. One option only could be observed at the recording session. On the other hand, disabling the option of observing a recording session on the scope lense automatically displays the recording session on the visible lense LCD screen area.

Manipulating the Camcorder is from the option buttons located along the sides of the camera. A switch on the menu area should make that experiece achievable.

My touch screen won't work. The phone is not locked and the buttons work, but not the touch screen. Help!

Try to turn off the cellphone, remove the battery for 5 minutes then re-insert the battery and try again. If the touch screen still doesn't functions try to restore the factory settings.

Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.

One touch copying

Of course, press copy, the screen should ask what record speed, then press copy again. This should solve your problem.
