Question about Canon MV700i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi! when i switch to mode"Camera",means i want to record there is only a sound but the display is dark. BUT when i switch to mode"PLAY(VCR)" i can see the previous movies which i already made when the video-camera was working fine.
Please help,because the birthday of 5 years old sun is comming soon.
thanks in advance
I have the same problem, it appears that this camera is one of many cameras that have problems with the CCD (image sensor) have a look at this site for more info www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
I hadn't used mine for about 9 months, when I went to use it the screen was black with a bit of flicker. Canon are still fixing them if you're from the UK have a peep here - https://self-service.canon-europe.com/uk/pages/
Hope that helps

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
