White screen on LCD and two vertical lines-1 red & 1 blue

Hi, the screen on the camcorder is white with a single vertical blue and red line. No picture on the screen. My camera is about 6 months old and was bought brand new. It has only been used about 5 times. Do you have any ideas?? I did take video on xmas day and even though the screen was blank with the lines I was able to download the videos still to my computer even though I couldn't see anything on the screen. Do you think I need to return it??
Thank you!

Hi, check the lense. It might be dirty or you may have left the lense cover down.

The most common problem with this camcorder is the lcd cable assy. It is the cable that comes in from the lcd panel assy to the internal board assy. I have seen possibly 100 of these cameras and different models and this fixes it everytime.
I hope this helps.

Red vertical lines/no picture

Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck

Do you have a picture showing in the viewfinder when the LCD is closed? If not, it's a bad CCD and I believe Canon will fix that for free if you call customer service.

Vertical lines

This is a defect in the CCD ( light sensor ) - check with Canon and they'll replace it free of charge even if the camcorder is out of warranty.
