Re: mv600i digital video camcorder - no image on lcd...

I took my camera to the service centre in Melbourne (Burwood) and they sent it to Sydney and fixed it without charge. It is an inherent problem with these cameras. I took a printout from this site, as other people had problems and had them resolved by Canon. In an ironic twist, it was stolen when my house was burgled a week after it was fixed! I now have a little digital number that I love!

Re: mv600i digital video camcorder - no image on lcd...

Please someone help with this. My camcoder works very well when watching things I've filmed before but when I want to record it does not function. All I get on the LCD screen is the blue screen with Canon on it and through the lens it is black. The lens cap is of course removed. Then when I turn the red button to off position the camcoder does not turn off and the screen remains blue. I have to remove the battery to turn it off.
I've had my camera for 4 years and I filmed so many precious family moments in it.

Sony TVR68 camcorder--Playback mode works fine. In camera mode, I have no image in eyepiece or LCD screen

Hi obx4ever, If this helps, the CCD was a problem I had in a lot of those camcorders and only replacement cured the problem. Only a sony authorized service centre will be able to replace the CCD for you. The CCD is a closed coupled device which generates the image that you see in the eyepiece and LCD screen when in picture mode. Michael.

I can turn my camera on, but there is no screen or sight for recording or play edit.

normally, if you can turn the camera on everything should work including the lcd. if its just an issue with the imaging sensor, you wont see anything on the viewfinder (for the viewfinder to work you need to close the lcd screen) but should at least see the indicators, same in the lcd screen and view your videos in playback mode. if its an lcd screen issue, there would be nothing coming up in any mode the camera is set to. you can try to reset cam back to default settings (press reset while cam is on, its located on the side where you have the handstrap, just below the speaker), or do power reset (remove the batt and ac adapter for at least a minute). if still the same, your unit may require service. thanks. hope this helps.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40

You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.
