BLACK SCREEN WHEN RECORDING

CAMCORDER WILL PLAYBACK BUT WHEN TRY TO RECORD ALL I SEE IS A BLACK SCREEN AS THOUGH LENS CAP IS ON (IT ISN'T!)


LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SHOP THINKS IT IS LENS THAT IS FAULTY. THERE WERE NO SYMPTOMS. OK ONE DAY,...WOULD ONLY RECORD BLACK SCREEN THE NEXT DAY.

Black screen when recording.


I would check to see if the cable to and from the lens assembly had come loose. If so resecure it carefully and this should take care of your problem . Larry's Electronics repair.

your camcorder unit uses a lens cap as a cover.so basically when you turn it on it should be ready to take the video right away. i am sure your able to see the display indicators and access the menu settings. if get a black screen and viewfinder when recording, and can record audio and playback previous tapes you've recorded then that would mean your cam has an problem with the imaging sensor. you can try to press the reset button (located near the left side of the battery and display buttons) while cam is on. or do power reset by turning cam off and removing the battery and ac adapter (do this for at least a minute). if your still having this problem, unit will require repair (but if you don't want to replacement would be another option).

Lens Cap Error


You have a defective CCD imager - the part of the lens that receives the image. Will need to be replaced.

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.
