Question about Canon MV600i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

No image through lens


When i switch my camera on, i can see all the settings displayed but it is on a black backround, i.e. no image appears on the lcd screen or through the viewfinder, yes i have removed the lens cap.
i therefore cannot record any images but i can record the sound. i can replay and view previously recorded stuff on the screen, through the viewfinder and onto the television.

    Hi there.

    I have the same problem described by another member on this forum. I purchased my mv600i camcorder and it was running without issue for some time.

    I now only get sound and not visuals when I try to record footage. I was advised to check out a link on this site but it no longer works.

    Does canon fix this even if the warranty has run out? what steps do I need to take to get this resolved please?

    any advice much appreciated

Hi
This series of cameras have born with the CCD defective!
It's a shame!, However if you replace the whole canon ccd assy 
Dy1-8509, you'll spend a lot of money, while it's possible replacing only the ccd chip (ICX281)  that you can find online anywhere (i.e. Ebay.com)  for a littke money amount.

Obviously it's necessary having experience in soldering smd components!| Otherwise you've ti buy the whole assy !!!!

I've the same trouble in my mv600i and in order to make my machine working(only in a  temporary way) , I've heathed all the pins of icx281.....and now it's working again, but  the camera  is not 'reliable', and today I've ordered a new icx281 .. here (for instance)

See this link. In the search window type 37383, then check the "Search by case ID" box below it, and click on Search. Your model falls within the list of models affected by this problem, and Canon should repair it for you regardless of warranty date.

Hello,
Try connecting an external monitor to the computer and check if the external monitor displays the same thing. If the external monitor is fine then you would need to fix the LCD of your laptop. or have it replaced.
If the external monitor displays the same thing, then you would need to update the video driver in your computer. You can use RadarSync to automatically update the drivers.

Hello

First, if the camera turns on and the lens extends properly, toggle your "display" button until the screen image returns. (you can turn the display off via this button and is most likely the issue).

Otherwise, it would indicate a greater issue that would require the camera to be sent in for service.

Photos have a black corner. Sometimes upper right, sometimes lower right. The black corner covers approximately 5% of the width and height of the image. Can I fix this myself?


This might also come from a problem with a dealignment of one of he servo-motors (horizontal or vertical) which center the lens during anti-shake adjustment.
If your camera vibraets at start or shows a vibrating image on display then this is the problem.
Then the lens is often out of axis and black corners appear on the display and of course on the picture...
I have not found the solution but have posted a request !
It may only be some disconnected part near the lens but unfortunately nobody shows pictures of HOW to dismantle the Z5 ! and WHERE are these 'bloddy' servo-motors or alignment devices ?...

Camera switches on but no display on screen it is black. when switch on camera screen shows canon logo and beeps then goes black on image shown on screen


Hi,

The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to cannon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.


Thank you
