First of all, make sure the lens cap is off. If you're still not getting a view, the camcorder has a serious issue. The CCD (video sensor) could be bad, a ribbon cable from the CCD to the main board could be loose, or the cpu could be bad. The unit will have to be serviced, unless you're brave and can take it apart to investigate. If you get it serviced, get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be quite high.

Why is there nothing showing in my lcd after I turn camera on?


This is an indication that the LCD is not functioning. You haven't indicated the make and model of your camera but if it has a view finder, try taking some picture and view them in a computer. No view-finder? Just point and shoot some subjects and view then from a computer.
Are the pictures OK? If they are than you might want to maintain that style while looking for replacement parts of service tech.

The power up problem perhaps can be solved by replacing the clock battery that is under the view finder arm. Move the arm to get at the small battery draw and replace the CR2025 button battery.

How do I get the sony handycam dcr-hc30ntsc to show me a pictuer wale recording or any thing


If camcorder does not show live view in view finder and lcd screen but shows good picture in play back of old recorded tapes then ccd imager chip is defective in camcorder and need to be replaced.
It is not user level repair as soldering work is needed to replace ccd imager chip.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

What is a Veiw Finder do I need it to work it just wondering thats thanks


The view finder is the small eyepiece you look through to see your subject that you are filming! If the camera has a seperate screen to watch your playback that can also be used as a view finder!

Cannot play my recorded films


if the camera is not showing recently recorded clips then the problem is fith the recording system, but if you are not able to view the old recorded tapes the there may the simple defect of head getting dirty. a head cleaning tape would solve the problem

I sent my camera to a repair center for samsung and they replaced the ccd at no charge and it fixed the problem. I have used it and all is working and playing the old tapes as well. Thanks for your help, but got the answer from a blog as well as the address to send the camera to. Have a blessed day.
