Hi, If you can view tapes playing back through the camera that were previously recorded using the main flip out LCD then you can be assured the LCD is actually fine. If you can, hook the camera upto a TV and playback the tapes you have to see if you have sound there. If not this will probably be related to the next section.

The problem common to a lot of digital camcorders is the when you try and record there is nothing on the LCD as you describe.

The fault is in the power cuicuit of the lens mechanism. If the lens does not activate, then the LCD will remain black.
The good news is it will more then likely be a micro fuse that has shorted that lets the power through to the lens. Without sound, there is a chance the same fuse powers both circuits.
The micro fuses look like little white strips normally, sometimes as small as 1mm and will be surface mounted.

Camera repair shops will charge quite high amounts to even look at the camera, so if possible call around for quotes, or check if it is still under any form of warranty.

Hope that helps a little anyway.

Seems like you might need to reset the camera. Try this,
Remove
1.0 Any connection from electrical point/PC.
2.0 Remove the battery

Leave your camera for at least 5 min.

Try to restart again....

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)

note error codes displayed - if camera shuts off immediately ; if tape is inserted ? put camera to your ear and apply power : if more than one motor sounds ( or sounds ' jerky ' ) your tape may be damaged - no user serviceable options left ; if no tape is inserted ? check with stacy sample at jvc factory service in houston , texas - for possible warranty updates .
