Question about Samsung SC-D23 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I bought Samsung SC-D23 Mini DV Digital Camcorder alomst two years ago but only used several times. Recently, when I turn on camcorder that did not capture any video or picture on screen and viewer, they both are show black and white blur strips, even recorded that on tape that shows same problem. I try reset it but nothing changed. Hope someone can help.
A law suit was filed against Samsung for the SC models including your D23. in accordance with the class action settlement, Samsung has agreed to repair or replace the effected models for zero cost including shipping and insurance. visit this website http://www.samsungclassaction.com/7.html or call Samsung repair @ there 1-800 number. Samsung also agreed to refund your money if you paid to have the unit fixed yourself or if you purchaced another camcorder to replace the faulty samsung. I called and they e-mailed me a UPS label to print out and shipping costed nothing. takes about two weeks for the repair and then it will be delivered @ your door like new:)

I have the same problems. I did find that if you point the camera into
a print light and zoom in and out the picture will come pack. This is
just a temporary fix.
After 3 times calling Customer Care I have finally been offered a free repair of exchange. The number is 1800-726-7864. The defect is a recall and they are finally stepping up.
I hope this helps.

This is a known CCD problem. A class action lawsuit was filed. Go to www.samsungclassaction.com for more info.

Call Samsung and return the camera. Just contacted them in Oct 2007, sent camera in December and they are replacing it with another model.

I have an SCD 23 with the same problem. I think it's a manufacturers defect in the CCD. I plan to replace the whole assembly and see what happens next.

It sounds like the camera recording heads need to be cleaned. If the heads are dirty, it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not, it will record poorly and playback the same. Purchase a DV cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. My only concern is that you haven't used it enough to be experiencing this issue. But it could also depend on the storage of the camera and the length of time it was used rather than how often. Either way, it's an inexpensive fix if it works. Let me know if it changes anything.
