The screen is not user serviceable. Some authorized service technician, be it Canon or a local shop, needs to perform the fix.

    take it to canon.

    tat is the best option

    because they are the authorized persons to do it.

    there is no way other than to replace the screen by canon


  • dewan nafees ahmed May 15, 2008

    since camcorder is delicate item canon is the best place for u.

    dont try to do it by urself and mess it up


    u wil surely end up wit a problem very big.

    dont worry what u pay is really worthy.
    40-50$ for service and remaining is the cost of screen.

    also if u had damaged any internal components other than screen u may be charged for that also

HV10 won't keep cassett in - loads, whirrs and ejects every time i put in cassett - tried several cassetts


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

The camcorder records fine, but when I play back, the counter number does not increase, and the screen is blue color (no video picture). Please advise me what to do. Thanks.


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

I want to download video from Canon HV10 to computer, the Zoombrowser only has stills, can you help


How are you connecting the camera - often this is the case if you use USB - to download the video you need to use the firewire connection - sometimes known as IEEE1394
All the manuals and info is here http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=369&modelid=14059
Page 64 of the manual shows the connection and refers to DV cable, and talks about using the DV for video IEEE1394 If you are unsure if your PC has a firewire connection look for this type of connector http://img.tomshardware.com/us/2004/04/02/go_external/i.link.jpg OR Have a look at device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc - on the screen that appears look for network adapters, use the + sign to open the network adapters - and you should see an item with 1394 listed if you have a firewire connection
If this solutions solves you problem, please do not forget to rate my solution. If not, then please comment back so I can help some more

Your best option is buy a junk one off ebay and replace LCD. LCD replacement is very straight forward, just remove the screws, pry the case apart and the rest will be easy. Use the one you buy off ebay and practice getting it apart.

Issue connecting HD Video Camcorder HV10 to MacBook


The USB cable is only for downloading still pictures from the camcorder. I don't know of any way to download movie unless you have a computer with the necessary IEE1394 (DV) terminal. Sucks as I have a Macbook Pro and can't download the video!

Mv600i digital video camcorder - no image on lcd screen in cam or playback mode


please someone help with this. My camcoder works very well when watching things I've filmed before but when I want to record it does not function. All I get on the LCD screen is the blue screen with Canon on it and through the lens it is black. The lens cap is of course removed. Then when I turn the red button to off position the camcoder does not turn off and the screen remains blue. I have to remove the battery to turn it off.
I've had my camera for 4 years and I filmed so many precious family moments in it.
