Question about Samsung SC-D107 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My Samsung sc-d107 has been working just fine. I recorded the other day with no problem then put the camera away. When I took it out a day later it shows only vertical stripes (blues and yellows in color, mostly) in the display both in the viewfinder and the LCD screen. It does fine in the playback mode of tapes I have previously recorded. The camera has not been dropped or bumped. Help!
The CCD Image Sensor is defective. I have one just like it. The CCD is the chip at the other end of the camera lens that "sees" the image. This model uses a CCD manufactured by Sony that is used in Sony models such as DCR-TRV250 and CCD-TRV138. Canon also uses this Sony CCD int their mini-dv models such as the ZR-60 and other ZR series models. Sony and Canon readily "own up" to this and if you go on their websites you will see that they will fix them for free. They even pay the postage both ways. We were on the phone today with Samsung and they deny any knowledge of the problem and want $150 for repair if I mail it to them. They also will sell me the part for $103! I wish you luck but it might take a class action suit to get them to do anything. I'd love to hear what Samsung tells you... Mike
