It's your CCD chip. Believe me, I hassled through this whole thing with Samsung. The CCD's in alot of cameras (Sony, Samsung etc.) came from a bad batch a couple years back. The other manufacturers offered free repairs, Samsung denied the problem even existed. I found out about it when my camera went "black" while trying to record. Pre-recorded tapes played fine but when I tried to record only the audio came through - no video. I had to work Samsung over from top to bottom and finally got my unit repaired at no cost. They told me "no" alot of times but I kept asking to speak to higher ranking people and finally talked some sense into an "executive customer service" representative after about a 45 minute discussion. Call 1800-SAMSUNG and don't give up until your camera is fixed at no cost to you!

My samsung mini camcorder scd103 screen and veiw finder is white. i can't record picture but i can record sound.


Hi,

Hi,this sounds as if the LCD monitor is defect and will be in need of replacement.To confirm LCD defect,insure that problem is with display, by verifying video output to TV or PC.If video is alright through a/v outputs to TV,than LCD is defect.However,if TV output is also white,than problem lies on main camera PC board.Whichever the case I do think that warranty repair should apply on this model and suggest to contact mfg factory service.

Note - In few cases i have seen that even corrupted firmware could cause the same.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

I have a samsung scd103 digital cam and when i record something it looks good on the screen while im recording it but when i play it back there are grey lines and distorted sound


Have you tried cleaning the recording heads? Use a dry type cassette cleaner only. It's just like a vcr head cleaner tape, only in the small mini-dv tape size.

Blue screen


the video ribbon is probably not secure in its connector and as you open the door it is pulled from the simple housing it connects to these cameras are absolutely terrible the lcd screens will always fail because of a design defect in the ribbon and its routing and fastening.Inside the lcd screen to secure it they use electrical tape as a fastener so ridiculous.
