    This is strange. I can't find any information on Canon's website for this model.



    Was this camera purchased in the US?

The led screen is not working all the index comes up but when you record the screen is blank it records the sounds but no picture its the same through the view finder canon mv730i


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My cannon mv730i wont play any images on the screen or the view finder when i playback the tape when i record it has picture on both i used it only a week ago and was fine.


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

On my cannon digital video camcorder ( model MV730i) i am trying to play back some footage i have taken but on the view finder (and also on my computer when i transfer footage over) the picture is coming...


Possibly dirty head and/or dirty tape.Maybe even wear-out tape,too.
But the worst scenario would be faulty or damaged head,which would be not worth repair it.

About transfering video from the tape into PC


Hi, You do need a firewire cable (which is normally provided with the camera) and a firewire port in your computer in order to get images off the tape which you have recorded onto.  The card however can be accessed via USB.  The card can store video as well as pictures although if it is the card that you bought the camera with it probably has very low memory. If I were you I would take one of these two solutions 
  • Buy a firewire cable and a firewire PSI card for your computer.  Use an editing software eg. Pinnacle or Windows movie maker to import video files from camera. 
  • On the camera above the power switch (camera, OFF, play), there will be a switch which at present is down indicating to video.  Switch it up to card.  This will then record video to your card which you can load to your computer same as the pictures.  You might need to buy a new SD card (located in compartment -Multi Media Card- next to lcd screen.) these can be quite cheap and 1 GB can hold more than an hour of footage.
Hope this helps- Any more questions just ask
