Question about Samsung SC-D103 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
It could be a sticky Iris. I haven't has Samsung with this problem but plenty of Sonys. Especially the M7. It's fiddly job to replace and involves a bit of experience not so much in stripping the unit down but putting the devils back together. One test is to film inside a shady room and then, still recording, point the camera at a bright light or window (daylight of course) and whilst doing si tap the camera and see if the picture gets lighter or brighter. Just the gentle shock could be enough to allow the voltage driven iris to open slightly.

Sillygirl Just an FYI in the united states the manufactures warrantee is as follows. if a unit comes in under a warrantee repair, the repaired item is only covered for as long as the original warrantee. I know peeps that got something fixed under warrantee and it went out of warrantee a week later and something else happened to the set like one of the crts went bad that the company had just replaced!! they covered the tube but not the labor. Wow a repair being covered for a year????

Samsung specialize in bad camcorders. It doesn't even have to break usualy in order to give you a fuzzy picture. If it's the same thing I would expect it to still be covered from the last repair. A repair should be covered for a year, but I don't really know what's their policy. Sorry for the anguish, I hope it works out. ;]

A law suit was filed against Samsung for the SC models including your D23. in accordance with the class action settlement, Samsung has agreed to repair or replace the effected models for zero cost including shipping and insurance. visit this website http://www.samsungclassaction.com/7.html or call Samsung repair @ there 1-800 number. Samsung also agreed to refund your money if you paid to have the unit fixed yourself or if you purchaced another camcorder to replace the faulty samsung. I called and they e-mailed me a UPS label to print out and shipping costed nothing. takes about two weeks for the repair and then it will be delivered @ your door like new:)
