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.

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.

Describe your Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Problem: When I turn the camcorder on in the video camera mode the lcd panel and th evf show black, it does not show current picture to record. All...

There was an earlier post that explained the black ribbon between the LCD viewfinder and the body of the camera is split. You would have to buy a new LCD viewfinder for about $90 or send it back to them to fix for around $250. The same thing happened to my camera and I can actually is the split. If you close it down more than half way the picture shows up. I called Panasonic and they said you have to buy the whole LCD, that you can't just buy the ribbon. They don't even have a part number for just the ribbon. Good luck.

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.
