Flip uses some kind of glue on a large transistor in the middle of the operations board that melts and connects parts of the board that should not be connected. you'll need to take the whole thing apart carefully unplug the main board from the wire connectors and find the big silver transistor in the middle with a clear brown glue melted all around the transistor. then you'll need to carfully chip the glue away without damage to the board.once you get all the glue cleand off make sure the the transistor is still bent down touching the metal plate below it. and your done put it all back together and it will work just fine. I have a few of these that I had to fix and it works perfectly.

Will my camcorder still record even though I can't view playback

If you cannot view action on the cam screen and likewise when attaching it to the TV; the video playback function has been compromised. You may be able to record as the two functions are separate from one another, however what good is recording when it cannot be played back? If the Recorded material is on a Tape or CD and you can move material to another reading device or player; then your problem is answered.

Can't record anything new

You can either use the "Digital Voice Manager" (loaded from the recorder when you first plugged it into a USB Port... OR, when you brought up the files in the recorder, clicked on the folder with setup). Or, if you just want to clean out everything from all four (A-B-C-D) folders, you can format the chip. Turn the recorder "on", press and hold "erase" until it flashes, press and hold "record" until it flashes "format", and press and hold "erase". "WAIT" will show on the screen until the chip is formatted, and you now have a clean chip - 128 meg or thereabouts.

GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder makes clicking sound when tape running

the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.

send it in for repair.
