Question about Canon ZR65MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder

No Picture when recording

My camcorder does not have a picture when recording.  It records sound only.  One would think the lens cap was on, but that is not the case.

    No matter what setting I put my camera on, all I record is sound and a black screen. This was one of the best camcorders I have had, and I hope canon can keep it that way, with HELP in fixing the problem so many have.

The image sensor (CCD) is the problem.This model is being repaired free of charge by CanonNo Picture when recording - 1.gif for a defective CCD. Go here for shipping information: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds....

I'm having the same problem, but only recently found this information. I just emailed Canon to find out if the repairs would still be serviced free of charge. Good luck :)

When recording, no picture thru viewfinder or lcd panel. Records sound. Was working fine, just started this, and the lens cap is off. Any assistance greatly appreciated.


It could be either aperture is stuck or ccd imager chip is defective in your camcorder that will be replaced.
In bright light, look into camera lens, turn ON in camera mode and observe does aperture open like an eye?
If you notice some thing opens right in center of camcorder lens then aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad that will be replaced.
Let me know model number of your Sony camcorder to provide you ccd imager part number info.
Thanks.

Only records sound no picture


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Your camera has a bad CCD sensor. It's the chip that converts light to electrons (that's how your camcorder records an image.)
I'm sorry, but that is not a do it yourself fix and should be taken to a shop for repair.
