On all DV cameras step one is to first clean the heads (either buy a cleaning tape (recommended) or use alcohol on a cotton swap and clean the head yourself)

if it still doesn't work it sounds like either you have a bad CCD (the chip that processes the image) or a bad LCD, which would require professional repair.

No image on LCD screen


It sounds like you're receiving partial information on the LCD screen and that the image sensor isn't sending information to the screen.

If you know the sensor is working by recording some video on an SD card and being able to view the recorded video on your PC, then there is a disconnect between the LCD and the image sensor.

If you are not recording video to your SD card and only get black images or no files, the image sensor is damaged.

If you are recording video, but no image appears on your LCD for internal viewing/playback, you can try a firmware update if one is available from www.insigniaproducts.com, but this is a discontinued item so there's not much available for support.

Hope this helps!

When camera is switch on the menu shows but no picture/image


Your camera seems to have ccd chip problem. Image chips goes bad sometimes and when you play recorded image it is ok but when you want to turn on the camera to take picutures, you'll see scrambled image or no image at all. The remedy for this symptom requires a replacement of ccd chip. The average repair for ccd problem is $100-$130 in the repair market. -James

Images not recording


I have a sony 14E and suddenly it stopped playing and recording. With vertical lines on the screen I knew to clean the heads. No effect on the recording/playing malfunction.

However I persevered and it seems to have worked in it is now recording and playing back. The steps I suggest, with PERSEVERANCE, are :
1. Clean the heads (I did it 3 times in all, with about 1 hour between each session);
2. Leave the camera open (tape section) for about 2 hours and put the camera (with or without tape) in a warm place. (I also had condensation messages).
3. Once it is warm put in a recorded tape and attempt to view it. At first I had "dirty" vertical lines for a few seconds but it cleared and played normally.
4. If Step 3 still does not work repeat 1 and 2. As I said PERSEVERE.
If Step 3 works then try to record. It should work hopefully. If not, repeat 1 and 2 (shortening the "Warm Up" time).
Good luck. I hope mine continues to work OK now. It is to do with dirty heads and coldness I think.
