Question about Samsung DouCam SCD-5000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Video takes time to show

When I initially switch the camcorder on in video mode the cam shows a black lcd screen however if you play around a bit e.g. change it to camara mode take a few fotos, rewind the take and play it for while the screen eventually works. I'm not sure but I thnk it is getting progressivly worse. Thanks for any help

    I have the same problem and the repair is apparently at minimum 150.00 to 200 plus to repair. I've gone to dealers and they usually won't fix unless given a diagnostic fee.

It's a bad ccd chip (Which Samsung is denying). Read some of the horror stories here: http://www.camcorderinfo.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=124288&page=1&pp=15

My Handycam shows a bluish screen(DCR-HC32E)


did you happen to drop the cam? there could be a technical error with the LCD screen. take it to the nearest Sony service center and have them take a look at it. you can try resetting the cam and see if it changes anything.

No display in viewfinder and LCD


i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.

Viewfinder and LCD screen only show black and record black


If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

Play back is in black and white


Set your TV in auto mode or according with your CAM system PAL or NTSC and some of the CAM you can set for AV out in PAL or NTSC system

Samsung VP-D31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder recording black screen


I have a brand new VP-D31. It still has the protector on the screen. I acquired this (legally!) but it has no charger,cables, battery or any etcs. I got it from the Police Auctions and was too ignorant to understand what I was getting. The item was obviously stolen from a store shelf - hence no bits. How about you buy it from me?

Black scene frame


i think you have changed the screen into other mode so that you are unable to see the recording picture there will be a switch to change the mode at the back of the cam or at the right of the cam.
