Question about Canon MV700i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Vertical lines I have borrowed a camera.  When I switch my camera on, there is no picture, only vertical lines.  Is it on some sort of setting or is the camera damaged.  I hope you can help. Thanks Scott

    Thankyou for your response Bubbabear64.
    The vertical lines remain when you move the screen around.  The lines get wider apart if you zoom out.  Brighter objects appear brighter on screen but you cannot make out the picture because of the vertical lines.



    Thanks Scott

    Yep the lines appear on the tape after recording.  Audio is OK.


    I will take it to the shop 
    Thanks again

    If you move the screen around, does the lines go away?

If the lines appear on the tape this way when it is recorded, then the CCD unit is going out on the camcorder. If it isn't recording the lines then the viewfinder wiring or screen is damaged.

You should problably take it into a camera shop to see if its worth fixing.

In Camera mode, only streaky vertical lines visible on screen


Its a fault with many of the canons,
they have NOT recognised it,
but you can get it fixed free by a third party company
(cant remember off hand which one soz)

Funny how they do it for free,
as if canon are paying them so they dont have to own up !!!

Lines on video


I've found out that if the little internal battery that holds the date and time is run down, then the camera can't focus on moving things well. I left mine plugged in all weekend, now can record action. Some can be replaced - like a big watch battery.

Red vertical lines/no picture


Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck

Split screen and blurred vertical lines in view finder and LCD


Elakkis, I am sorry you are having a problem with your JVC camcorder. Your camera more than likely has a defective CCD imager which is being replaced by JVC factory service at no charge because of a problem with the Sony CCD chip being used. Call JVC and arrange to send the camera to them. Hope this helps you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)
