    I can record in video mode and only getting voice playback but no images on still shot or video- display is also not showing - black screen. I can reset from menu as this shows on display whatever I have chosen- problem is I cannot take pictures or see video at all- I have tried taking out battery and reformatting memory card etc and even manipulating the lens gently with my hands.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Especially when you mentioned voice but no picture for video. If so, Canon will fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

No lmages on display


Can you come into the menus? Just to check you did not change anything? Sometimes the monitor or display stays black in record mode, because the camera was put in power save mode. In the manual you can find hoe to switch it on again. Has to do, with what you want to see during record mode. Just the image, image with info, sometimes with a grid and then display off.

On picture taking mode, screen is black but can still take pictures


Please provide more detail about your problem.

Does the screen play back the pictures ok but not during record mode? Or is it off all the time and you used a computer to review the shots that were taken?

Check the basics listed below:

1. The screen may be switched off.
Press the display button on the back while the camera is on. This toggles the display setting between various settings such as Off/ On / Info. Keep pressing the button to try the aternate modes, it just goes round and round to 2 -3 different modes.


2, Check that the monitor brightness setting is set to medium at least in the menu's.

3. If the problem is only affecting recording then check that the main record settings are correct for the type of scene you are taking. For example don't use Beach, Snow, Candle or manual with a high shutter speed while taking regular daylight shots with minimal lighting.

. 4. If the LCD display has a hardware issue you could connect the camera to a TV using the video output jack and look at it that way. Then you'll know if the built-in LCD is ok or not.

5. Having a damaged or stuck video output jack COULD cause this problem also since that circuitry is designed to automatically shut off the built-in LCD display when you connect a video cord to it. Note that having a video cable plugged in to the video output jack would shut off the display also. Such as when you have it connected to a TV.

Hi there,

Firstly you need the remote control that came with your camera (RMT-814).

Switch on your camera to VCR mode. Then on the remote, press the Data Code button (and of course, point the remote towards your camera). This should display the date and time in the bottom left of the screen.

It should display the appropriate date and time for each bit of recorded video.

Hope this helps!


Ron.

Turning off recordng message.


You can turn the display off during playback mode, however, if the display was on during recording, that cannot be turned off. . 1. Press the DISPLAY button on the left side panel. 2. Each press of the button toggles the OSD function on and off. When you turn the OSD off : * In CAM mode: The STBY, REC, EASY.Q modes are always displayed on the OSD, even when the OSD is turned OFF and the key input is displayed for 3 seconds then turned off. * In PLAYER mode: When you press any Function button, the function is displayed on the OSD for 3 seconds before it turns off. Turning the DATE/TIME on/off * The DATE/TIME is not affected when the OSD function is switched ON or OFF. * To turn the DATE/TIME on or off, access the menu and change the DATE/TIME mode.
