    YES! they are marked A-F.

    I hope this is accurate, but since getting it wrong means blowing up a $200 worth piece of hardware, i'd appreciate if you could tell me where the information comes from.

    I appreciate your re-assurance. I found the information from the service manual. If you are a tech, you can measure the 12V with a multimeter. Also check the ground when no power is connected.

Nothing comes through to my viewfinder. Everything else seems to work fine.

If pictures are coming through to your screen, then the ribbon cable to the viewfinder has probably broken( they are quite brittle with age on this model). Can you see if it's broken when you hinge the viewfinder up? Replacement of the ribbon cable is the only viable option.

Not seeing anything through the viewfinder when switched on

Most cameras and video recorders now display picture either through the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
Your camera model allows the same. Although if you turn the lcd screen towards the subject (screen faces the same direction as the lens) then the viewfinder switches on.

Viewfinder not attached

I've tried but does not work. What you want to do is request for limited repair on VF only. That way it is possible to save some repair charges. The limited repair can be performed by local camcorder repair facilities. Good luck - James. For further assistance, go to

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.
