Canon ZR65MC that will not show image on LCD or viewfinder

I have a canon ZR65MC that has rarely been used. When you turn the camera on, the LCD screen and view finder are both black. No image appears. The lens cap is off. This happens wether you are in camera tape mode or still image mode. In still image mode it flashes BLK&White on the screen but I can't find what that means anywhere. It powers up fine and everything else seems to work there just isn't any image to record. Every now and then the image will come back but it's sporadic and I can't pinpoint what makes the image sometimes appear. I don't use the still image capability in this camera but I'd like to be able to use the record function again.

No image is available to view on the lcd screen canon ixus85is


Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

How can you use the LCD screen in lieu of looking through the view finder to take pictures. This is for a Canon EOS Rebel XT.


Im afraid your camera does not have live view so therefore you will have to use the viewfinder to take your images and view them back on the lcd screen.

Notify Canon, they will pay for shipping and repair free of charge. There is a problem with the wiring affected by heat and humidity, Look on Canon website under ZR65MC, or your model number, and look for "Advisory".

Screen isfull of colored lines. Record and play


I looked into to this it is the ccd and Canon will fix it for free (shipping included), as stated below. I have copied what has helped me!
It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensor used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments.
Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.
U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to carecenter@cits.canon.com

I have a canon mv-630i digital camcorder. the view finder and screen goes blank (white/gray)colour and looks very scratchy.


See this link. The ZR65MC is the US version of your camera. Canon has a world wide service notice regarding these models, and if it is determined that your problem is with the CCD image sensor (your description indicates it is), they will repair your unit at no cost regardless of warranty status. Contact the Canon service organization for your region.

Black LCD and Viewfinder


I have the similar problem as above...Canon 5D

When camera is turned on the viewfinder is black. All other functions appear to be working correctly. I can view pictures on the card. I take a picture and it views on the screen and the spec's come up on the botton of the view finder but the viewfinder is 90 black with a bit of blur. Is this the censor or a mirror...?

Is this fixable and at what approximate cost? Would it be cheaper to replace?
