    What can be done for this problem?

  • otej060 Apr 06, 2008

    When I put the VPC-HD1 in camera mode the screen is black. When it's in playback mode I can view the pictures and videos that are on the memory card.

    I purchased the camera at eBay, the camera broke two month into ownership, I have used it only twice in the two years I have owned it, when it broke Sanyo refused to fix it, I spent over 400 bucks having it fixed and keeps on braking it, right now Sanyo service center has it and they claim it works fine, so it must be my imagination, the camera is defective and the replacement parts are too, I will escalate this to Small claims court, you should do the same

Iris is not the cause of black screen.First confirm that shutter is opening as soon as you switch on camera.If shutter is not opened and you can't see live view on screen except black screen,then certainly there is problem with shutter assambly.

If shutter opens and you see black screen then there is problem with CCD.

Model VPC-E870. How do I get it back to normal and not just a black screen?

Try looking through the menu system for an item called Factory Reset or similar. This will remove all changes made since manufacture, without affecting photos taken.

Only pictures taken indoors show up on the display

Obviously there's too much light getting through the lens. Either you have locked the iris down with switching the wrong switch or changing something in your on screen menu. If you have your manual check for some mention of over or under exposure. What you are getting is overexposure.

This could of course be caused by a problem in the camera itself. More than likely in the iris control. An Iris stuck in an almost closed position would cause this as well. Luckily the problem is a user error (nothing personal) I caused a similar problem in a $40.000.00 broadcast camera and took me about 15 minutes to figure out which switch I'd bumped. If the camera has been well looked after and not subjected to sand, grit and heavy dust and the lens works OK then it's a good chance of being a user error. Try the troubleshooting section and if you have no joy it looks like a trip to the repair shop. It's certainly nothing which can be fixed by proxy. But sometimes, I repeat sometimes, a slight tap on the front of the camera body using just your finger may move the iris and release the jam. Don't tell anyone I said that. I've actually done it myself and as far as I know the camera is still working but don't keep bashing it and if the friendly tap doesn't work then don't try anything stronger. Let the tech have a look instead.

Don't forget, I never said a word. Shhhhhh!!!

Black lcd screen

I could not find an online manual, but most cameras have an option to shut off the LCD screen when taking pictures. Check this in your manual, there's a great chance this is the problem. If not, you have to seek professional help

Black screen

CCD failures are rare. I would suspect that the iris is stuck. This can occur if dust or dirt gets into the lens assembly or if there is a deposit of oil on the iris itself. Try gently tapping the side of the unit while on to see if you can release the iris.

The screen on my Sanyo VPC-E6 is frozen

This is not specific to your camera, but try taking the batteries out, wait about a minute, then put them back in (like re-booting a computer). If this doesn't do it start looking for a new camera, since the cost of repairs will probably exceed the cost of a new camera, and the newer ones usually have much higher resolution than the one you are replacing and most likely for less money.
