Mini-DV tapes have a manual write-protect switch on them to prevent accidental erasure or over-recording of previous recordings. I expect this switch has been set to "save", perhaps accidentally.

You probably got a bad LCD and battery even though it says its charged this is not the case as batterys have cycles just like washers and dryers once the run out they need to be replaced that means the whole battery. The lcd is another anaimal you probably got moister from sitting in the closet this happens is there is clothes and other things (NEVER KNOW) I would take it to a camera shop foe evaluation.

SOUNDS LIKE A BAD CCD.. SAMSUNG IS KNOWN FOR THIS PROBLEM WITH THIS MODEL.. WILL YOUR UNIT RECORD SOUND BUT NO PICTURE? IF IT DOES IT IS THE CCD ..CHARGED COUPLER DEVICE

Hi,
If your Samsung SC-D107 playback old tapes and shows fine picture in LCD / viewfinder then It is symptom of bad CCD Imager ( an electronic part that convert an image into electronic signal) that camcorder does not show live view in camera record mode.
CCD Imager will be replaced in your camcorder. Ask an estimate of repair at local camera repair shop because its job of qualified camera tech.
CCD Imager assy is available in Part Store for $51
Thanks.

Fixing Your Samsung SCD107 Camcorder by bawhitmer
push the "EASY Q" button. After a few minutes it popped up and started working again. Problem is, after 5 minutes it went to black again
surgery that it had a bad CCD and possibly the CCD control board. In any case you can find both at tigerdirect.partsearch.com with part# AD97-08366A. This is the CCD and Board assembly and is around $56.00. If you think that you might just need the Control Board then its part# is AD97-08367A and is around $19.00. In any case neither operation requires any soldering as the ribbon cables just unclip from their sockets.
*Before proceeding with this surgery make sure that you take note to where all the screws you remove go back. Also be sure to remove all screws completely.
Step 1 (Front Cover Removal): Remove battery then remove top silver screw just in front of the "nite pix" switch. Then lift the DVI cover to locate and remove the second silver screw. Then, with the camera lens and light facing you roll the front cover to the right(it can only really roll one way) while pulling the front cover at the same time. Its held in by a clip. When its free disconnect the light connector if it hasn't already come off during the front cover removal.
Step 2 (Splitting the Case): Remove five(5) silver screws from the bottom. If you count them there are a total of eight(8) so remove all EXCEPT the one screw at the tripod boss AND the two screws on the tape door. Next, proceed to remove the two black screws located in the battery tray in the back. Then flip the camera so you are looking at the hand strap, DVI cover, etc... Locate the two black screws by the "Slow Shutter" switch and remove. Next, flip up the eye piece and remove only the right screw. *Be sure to remove this screw completely because it is held in place by a threaded stud plate and it could fall out and bounce into that other dimension where all important little things go. The case should now be ready to split. Gently work the case in two and pay attention to the ribbon cables as you separate the two halves.
Step 3 (CCD and Board removal) The CCD and Control Board are removed as one unit. Remove all ribbon cables attached to the board. If the ribbon cable socket has a long brown bar across the top flip it up and remove the cable. If it has two brown buttons on the left and right of it then pull each button out and remove cable. *Take note to the orientation of the cable in the socket ie up or down. Unplug any remaining power wire sockets on the board. The board itself is held in by two(2) screws. Locate and remove these screws and lift the CCD and Control Board Unit out.

CONGRADULATIONS !

For installation, read these instructions backwards.

i have this same problem for a while and just stumbled on the (yet to be verified) solution. www.samsungclassaction.com. if this settlement is legitimate then Samsung will repair for free! (and refunds for people who paid Samsung to repair). the site asks for contact info but i worry about scams so i'm going to contact Samsung directly.

i hope this is real!

The affected models include:
SCD 23, SCD 27, SCD 103, SCD 107

Since you are using Vista, it would be much better if your use FireWire cable instead of the normal USB cable.

You may use FireWire IEEE1394 cable.

Just check if your tower do have FireWire port, and if it doesnt have one, you need to use a FireWire add-on card.

Good thing about FireWire, it doesnt require any driver or software.

there is a couple other posts on Fixya regarding this issue, the CCD sensor going bad and resulting in no image. i have the same issue and i just stumbled on the (yet to be verified) solution. www.samsungclassaction.com. if the settlement is legitimate then Samsung will repair for free! (and refunds for people who already paid Samsung for repairs). the site asks for contact info but i worry about scams so i'm going to contact Samsung directly.

i hope this is real!

I had the same problem with Samsung SCD103. It was sent to the factory January 2007($150.00) and everything worked fine until last week when the grandkids came down. The camera simply stopped displaying any image, the viewfinder went black. I suspect is a failure on the CCD. Now, I have a non-working camera that I've bought extra batteries for and lots of DV tapes. I won't buy another Samsung product now that I've seen the problems and apparent lack of concern for the customer!

Samsung SC-D107... | Answered on Dec 10, 2008


Problem is probably a bad CCD imager. Go to www.samsungclassaction.com for more info.
