I have almost the same problem! Did you ever figure out what happened? Here's what I had posted yesterday:
Tech Friends -
I recently got a non-sony tape stuck in my DSR-11 (bummer) and was forced to extricate it using the "my tape got stuck in the DSR - 11" article's method of removing the top cover and highest level of circuit board:
This worked for the tape removal, however, upon replacing the circuit board and cover, the deck no longer seems to be able to do anything with video or audio. It still communicates with FCP via its firewire connection (ie FCP is able to control FF, rewind, play functions, etc), but it seems unable to read or write video. Also, we use it as an A - D converter box between a Beta SP deck and thecomputer (actually, this is the deck's main function here). Even when I switch it to the correct setting (video) and check to make sure that everything is plugged in correctly (trust me, I checked, it is), I get the "there is no video here" error message.
Also, after trouble shooting the drive for a little while, I pressed the "reset" button the the rear. I'm not sure if that matters one way or the other. I don't think it does (that just resets the time code, right?)
The question is, would this be a case of "fried firewire jack" such as it seems so many of us DSR - 11 owners have? Could I have done any frying myself by not having myself properly grounded when opening the shell? Is there anyone who knows the answer? Help! I can't digitize my video!

Okay, I've checked all of the FCP settings and played with the deck more and it's only confused me more. I can now get it to not only be controlled by the computer, but actually print audio and video to mini dv tape. Also, I can record from my Beta SP deck to miniDV tape in the deck (connected through the "video" input on the rear of the unit). In other words, the deck seems to function perfectly doing everything except for converting analogue to digital passively. The way we always did it before was by keeping the input switch on the face of the unit on "video" and log and capturing in FCP with it as a noncontrolable ntsc device. This makes me understand it less. It means to me that it is not a broken switch, it's not a broken firewire port, everything works perfectly EXCEPT for using the unit as an A-D converter. What the dill-yo? If anyone in the world could offer any insight as to what could be causing this I would greatly appreciate it!

SOURCE: Bad DV Out Port
There are settings like on pg 211 of your manual you might have to switch from analog out to DV out. I bet thats it. There are other options around pg 221 for USB output settings but I didn't see any conflict but it doesn't mean there won't be some.
Good Luck. Leave a comment if you need more info . Just in case here's where to get a copy of the manual: http://www.mannlib.cornell.edu/equipmentandrooms/upload/DSR-PDX10.pdf

SOURCE: dvcam dsr 45 firewire problem
if you can use your computer and cable firewire for other device. it means that your ic firewire in your dsr 45 is defect/broken,if you want to capture without firewire dsr45 , you need video and aodio in card for your computer.note ic firewire easy to defect/ broken if you plug/ uplug it when the device and the cumputer are on.

Need a 1394 firewire port and suitable software like Corel Videostudio. Then no problems. When no 1394 port thoes pci cards come cheap, $15 or so. Video studio retails about $100 I think, you can download a free limited 30 day trial from Corel. Please uninstaal that demo after 30 days with the same install programm otherwise deep ****.
