Thats an oldie but still a goodie.. this camcorder was made by Hitachi for RCA and its doubtfull that theres any parts available for it. You are probably gonna have to look around for someone with old camcorders laying around and swap out the veiwfinder . these units are also famous for the belts to go bad in them. if you take this unit to a servicer they probably have a flat rate as I've seen online under camcorder repairs unless you think you can do it your self?? Good Luck PS If I get a good look at the veiwfinder and if theres a plug or is it hard wired I may have one as I got several camcorders around the place i use for opsolete parts.

Powered but not booting. No visual. HDD light not doing anything.


Remove the RAM and start, see if it beeps and/or shows something on the screen. Try with the external screen too.
Let me know how it goes
Cheers

My camera is locked. The viewfinder doesn't show an image and there is no button to press that will take a picture. There is a large yellow dot to the right of viewfinder and when tap it it enlarges...


Either restart your iPhone, or reboot the programme. It happens a bit with the 4S, but even more so with older iPhones.


To reboot the programme on the 4S, this is what I do:


1. Double-press the round home button. This will bring up a row of apps on the bottom of the screen. These are the apps that are currently running.

2. Swipe until you get to the Hipstamatic app.

3. Push down on the Hipstamatic app and hold until it jiggles and a red minus sign comes up.

4. Tap the red minus sign and your iPhone will shut the app down.

5. Press the round home button again - twice.

6. Now tap on the hipstamatic icon to open it again - it should now be fine.

My handycam screen is blank and doesn't show anything


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if there is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCD when attempting to record.
NOTES:
* Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the viewfinder or LCD status after completing each step.
* It may be necessary to refer to the operating instructions provided with the camcorder for information on how to perform a task on your specific model.
1. Ensure the lens cap on the front of the camcorder has been removed.
2. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted in the camcorder.
3. Ensure the STANDBY/LOCK switch is set to the STANDBY position.
4. Turn on the camcorder and set it to the CAMERA mode.
5. Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD.
IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD. To conserve power, the viewfinder and LCD will not display at the same time. To use the viewfinder, the LCD must be closed.
6. If the issue is not resolved, reset the camcorder to factory specifications.
NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing the troubleshooting steps, service may be required .

The viewfinder is blank and working only with review option. Since the viewfinder is blank the photo and video is also blank. Is it a firmware software problem.


Its a camera CCD Problem. If the View finder & LCD both showing black then its 100% CCD problem. Let me know Lcd also black? Also make sure lens is not covered by any thing.

Powershot pro1 viewfinder show blank white


Hi
When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.

Hope this helps.
