People, I got the same problem like 5 minutes ago, but I fixed it. You have to REMOVE the battery while the camera is off, then wait 2 seconds and take it back inside. It works.

But I have an Canon Xm1, so I don`t know if it works for all of you guys, but good luck!!

tape door keep eject

My Canon Elura50 did the same. It's a manufacturing defect with the CCD, (The image sensor) mount installed by Sony Corp.

Canon Service centers hounour a full repair of this problem free of charge. You just have to find one close and take it in for "CCD problem"

Incidentally Canon has about twenty or thirty cameras with this same problem. Everything works but there is no image. It's the Sony CCD mount inside Canon Cameras.
Trust me, It's 100% free repair.

Your CCD (Charge Coupled device) is faulty and requires replacing. This was a known fault a few years ago and free repairs were available. This is not likely to be the case now.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

You are in luck. Sorry for the trouble but your model Elura 50 still has the CCD advisory from the factory for free repair. Send it in for CCD advisory before it is too late! When all functions are working but has distorted image in camera mode is due to CCD chip. Good Luck -James. for further assitance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
