Question about Hitachi DZ-MV780E DVD Camcorder

3 Answers

I have play back, but no picture when recording.

Hey there. Everytime I turn on my camera all I get is a black screen. I'm not sure if its recording sound, but definitely no picture. I can still get playback when I am browsing the stuff I had already recorded. Thanks if you can help!

Hi,

Often this type of problem is caused by the CCD lens. To my knowledge, your particular model has a 1.3 MegaPixel CCD.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If your camcorder was manufactured between October 2002 and March 2004, it is very possible that it uses a Sony manufactured
    Charge coupled device (CCD). If it were so, you may want to check here. An explanation of the this problem common to a number of camcorder brands was posted here.

When i chage the option of oFF to CAMERA nothing turns on and when I change the option OFF to VCR the screen just show strange symbol and SP and it does not work


just so you know, your camera model was included in the list for what we call the "ccd program". this program has ran for 5 years and unfortunately ended march this year. sony gave free repairs for cameras and camcorders affected by the defective ccd imaging sensor before the said date. issue with the camera shows a black or distorted screen in camera mode. but the you should still be able to see the indicators on the screen. when switch to vcr you should be able to play back previous recordings that you made. better to really make sure its a ccd issue, play a tape that you're sure contains a movie recording and play it, then set it to camera mode and see if you get just a black screen. if you try recording using a tape, you may see nothing but should hear the audio part. if this is what's happening we can be sure it's a ccd issue. if your camcorder just won't turn on in camera mode, maybe the power switch turned defective or it can be other parts of the unit that stopped working.if this is the case, then of course, your unit may require service to address the problem.hope this info helps.thanks:)

When i take a picture the secrin is black plz


if the picture is being recorded and only the play backscreen is not working then you will have to have the playback screen or associated electronics repaired. If the camera is not even taking pictures or playing back then the camera is broken beyond economical repair. Canon will charge about $125 for a rear screen repair and about $150 or more for a sensor repair. New models better than the one you have start at $299.

Hey guys, I bought this a while ago but it has been in and out of the repairs since i first got it out of the box. I was sick for a few years so it just sat in the box. But now I would like to use it, but...


Hi
Does not sound encouraging....was the screen always 'black'?
Was that the original fault or something different?
Usually, if the screen blacks out and there is absolutely no picture even attempting to surface it may be the flat micro film connector between the screen and the camera.
Have you tried recording a new tape and then playing it on someone elses camera?
Have you capability to transfer a newly recorded tape from the Sony to your PC?
All this will do is help eliminate the problems e.g. if the tape plays normally on your PC or a friends camera then it is definitely the screen. If not, then could be a myriad of things wrong.

Nigel

Lumix TZ3 lens does not open


It is not clear if you are saying whole camera turns off or just screen turns off.

Notice before the camera went bad the lense does not extend in play mode, while it does in record mode. Many cameras have software that automatically turns camera off if lens cannot/fails to extend for some reason. Try to help it extend in record mode before camera turns off.

Sony F55 Recorded Display


The filename (e.g. DSC0012.jpg) shows the image number, the filespec shows the date and time recorded. Most software will give you document info about resolution of the image. I wouldn't worry about what the battery status was when the shot was taken or how many other images were on the Mstick. I guess I'm not sure what you need.
