Question about Canon VIXIA HV30 DV Camcorder
I have a refurbished Canon HV30 that I bought recently. A couple of times the camera just stopped and the LCD screen goes black with red and green streaks running through it. I removed the battery and pressed the reset button with a pen, and the camera started working again. Anyone know what's going on?

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

I had a similar problem last few days with my ZR60.
The problem I had was that the tape won't eject and on repeated attempts to eject it would eject as if it had a mind of its own.
I was messing with it a little bit and realized that the door was not opening fully. Being a delicate item I didn't realize that I was not fully opening the door may be because there was a little friction in the pivot pins or what ever.
Try to gently swing the door open fully and see if it helps.
Since I discovered this problem I tried 10-12 times, and every time it would eject the tape and load it.
I was almost going to give up this camcorder last night thank GOD, I am able to use it.
Good Luck to you.

You have a case of CCD chip gone bad. It goes bad without notice and it happens to few ZR model camcorders. Unfortunately, ZR45 does not have CCD advisory with free repair from Canon. So the cost of repair may exceed the value of present value. For information, these models have free repair with CCD problem, ZR60,65,70,80,85 and ZR90. -James

There was an known issue with this camcorder...if its the same problem it is with one fo the electronic components, i sent mine back to Cannon they repaired it for free...they paid for shipping both ways...call Cannon or email them, tell them the prob. they will email you back they will probably want the model. serial numbers to check if it is one of the ones that has this known issue...mine works great now....

You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.
Let us know if this helped...

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
