What does remove obstruction mean


Is mirror in locked up position? In manual mode? Especially if the lens is irised down to a high f-stop.

The screen stays black. Yes, I have batteries, I do get instructions and images for video or camera, but I can no longer get a visual of anything the camera is aiming at. It's like there is a lens cap on...


Look at the front at the lens. Turn the camera to picture mode. Point the camera at a light above you. Take a few pictures and watch the lens.
You should be able to tell if is functioning correctly or if its broken. It sounds like it has been dropped.

Keeps saying to turn off camera and won't take pictures


What the troubleshooting guide suggest is to turn off the camera and turn it back on which sound like what you have been doing. The cause of this generally points to a camera malfunction between the camera and lens. This makes me believe that either something is restricting the lens from moving like the lens cap is tethered to the camera and tight on the lens so it can't do it's "pre" view and goes into the shut down mode. If the lens has any restriction be it the lens cap, ever ready case or anything that is restricting the lens movement remove it and try it again. I have another theory which is completely opposite to anything even suggested and that is the camera can't read the SD card so goes into shut down mode. If you remove the SD card and check to make sure the "lock" switch is in the unlock position. I'll give you a diagram for this.
The little switch needs to be pushed forward towards the gold contacts.

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.

You have a one year warranty with Canon, you should have all the information about shipping it to them in your original box.

LCD showing "remove len cap and press reset button" always


Simple! Read warnings carefully! It said "remove lens cap and press SET button"! So remove the lens cap and then press the SET button (or arrow downward in the four directions button)! You don´t need to RESET anything...

Can't see out of viewfinder


The mirror motor is probably the problem, you'll usually hear a whirring noise like a motor spinning. It's about a $125 repair, requiring the mirror box to be removed and the mirror driving motor replaced. Pentax originally put a plastic gear on the motor shaft - the replacements have a brass gear.

No display in record mode on Samsung VP-D31


Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck
