There are no "filters" on this camera unless you've got an external one screwed to the lens. The ND "filter" feature is an internal option that cannot be accessed to clean and should have never gotten dirty where it is located. Are you sure you mean the filters or something else?

If it is a camcorder that requires a disc to record then you must install the software the camcorder came with.If you bought it without the software disc,I recommend looking it up. Or you can try putting the recordabble disc in your laptops DVD player.

Possible that the flexible strip connection had been damaged and so the display does not seem to get the connection correct.
it will be necessary that you have the ability to open the display and camcorder main covers to see that the status of the connection wire.
if the strip seems to be good with continuity tested, then the fault can be failure of the power to the display- check power supply or the failure of the LCD display unit.

The lens cover mechanism in these cameras is susceptible to debris and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

I have heard of this only a few months ago, it was the way the camera door can get fouled up by a wonky disk not stopping at the right place.
Try to shoot a few seconds of extra movie, then try to open the door again.
If that does not help press the reset button for 30 seconds to open the door (see handbook) on doing that.

Dirt or grain of sand in the small gear box that drives closing and opening of lens cover. Remove front assy. and if you are brave dismantle gear box to clean out. Otherwise just blow without dismanling the gear box.
