Question about Canon ZR-950 Mini DV Camcorder
You could try slaving the camera out to an external screen if you have the cables, you should find a RCA output socket on the camera marked video out (commonly known as a phono)normally yellow also a couple of audio out sockets one red and one white.
If you plug the yellow one into an external monitor you will see if it's the camera LCD screen that faulty.
Also check the iris is not turned down when playing back or recording this can happen if the camera is set to manual.
Set the camera to automatic and try again.
It sounds to me that the iris is closed, if the head drum is spinning you should get something even if it's random signal noise denoting clogged heads anyway the camera would flash up a clogged head icon so first as check the iris.
