Re: Samsung VP-D101 blank LCD display
Samsung has been having very serious problems with the CCD imagers in their camcorders for some time now. I would give them a call and let them know how disappointed you are in the camera. Almost all manufacturers having this problem are repairing the cameras at no charge to the customer.
Good luck to you!

I'm not certain whether everything that was on the CD is available from the Samsung web site, but there are drivers and software available from then to download: click here>
I hope this helps. If all of the software that you need is not available, then you will need to contact Samsung UK (see the "Phone" link on the web site) and ask for a replacement CD for your model camcorder.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year.
You can download it here:- http://www.nodevice.com/user_manual/samsung/camcorders/vp-d101.html .You will see the correct download button just below the label 'Download Samsung VP-D101 User manual' which is over halfway down the page. You will need to enter the code number shown a bit smudged in the picture, then wait for about 30 sec countdown and click 'try again' if nothing happens after a few moments. It will take a minute or so to download the manual as a PDF file which you can then save on your PC.
Your flat wire / ribbon cable that goes from the LCD display to the main PCB is fractured and split, thus it looses signal and as in your case the split has worsened and you have lost power to the backlight also, which comes from this very cable. You will need to replace it and it may not come as just the cable but the entire LCD panel. This is a common fault on many camera's of different makes.
The only way to download your video to your computer is by using a firewire cable. You will also need a firewire port on your computer. If you don't have such a port you can buy a PCI firewire port.
After you have connected your camera to your pc using the firewire cable you can transfer your video using a video editing software. You can use Windows Movie Maker that comes with Windows.
that issue will come to any camera these days , you know what to do , you go to you local shop(wallmart or something) and ask for a cleaning tape its not very expensive and make sure that the tape is dry then put it where you put your tapes in the camera and play , and eventually the picture will get good again ...god bless ya and good luck=)
