Re: Wont go into camera mode.
the problem can be in sensors (micro switches) for dust cover in front of the lens unit or the lens unit is stuck.

Same thing happened to me. No display, no menu, no S-video output while in camera mode, but in VCR mode all was OK. Turning power off and on did not help until I also disconnected the AC power adapter. BTW, Mr. Riggins did not read the question before he answered.
i am having a problem with a borrowed everio (gulp) - it will only power on if attached to the wall charger - otherwise, it wont recognize the battery - although the battery is full and works fine with other everios. an expert said they were made poorly and i just have to take it in to service
mine is an everio gz-mg37u and i get that same bulls*** on the screen at every power up. First I tried waiting a while then switching all the switches between camera and video mode, record and watch mode, etc. and one time it worked and the message went away. Haven't been able to do that since.
Now what I do is turn it on, wrap it in a blanket, leave it about 10 minutes, then turn the power off and on again. Works fine for me, and if I turn it off and then turn it back on within a few minutes before it cools down, it works fine. There has to be a messed up sensor in this thing that I can desolder somewhere......
I was able to get past this problem by removing and reinserting the battery. This caused, in effect, a hard reset of the camera, which let me power it up fresh and take pictures again. Of course, it's not exactly reassuring that the problem arose in the first place,
If you know how to open up the camera,the two connecttor from lens module attach to the main PCB have contact problem.you need to make sure they have a good contact.one way is to clean up the contact point and re insert back ,it may help.
