    I have the same issue. The battery is fully charged yet I can't see anything. The camera has not been exposed to any extreme temperatures or light. We haven't used it in a while but that shouldn't be an issue.

Go to the manufacturer's website, for Canon it is <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportIndexAct">http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportIndexAct</a>
Select your device, and click the button for camcorder product advisories. There has been a known problem with the CCD chip in certain models, if that is the problem Canon will repair the problem free of charge, even without being under warranty. Free shipping as well.

He CCD (charge coupling device) went kaput like all those others who are complaining about no picture in the view finder. My technician told me that this happens when 1) on exposure to hot climate 2) if we focus too far, like into the sky or by mistake at the sun or some bright flourescent light. This fact is not mentioned in the accompanying instruction manual, atleast i did not find it. I hope all current users take these precautions, it is too late for me, I am not spending any more money on this digital camcorder. I sincerely request Canon to withdraw this product. i found this info hope it is helpful

SOURCE: no picture

The motor circuit on most handycams has it's own fuse since it draws more power then the rest of the camera combined.
The fuse will only be a tiny white blip on the circuit board about 1-2mm in size.
Safest option would be to have a technician take a look at it since they can be stubborn to even get apart, let alone track down mico fuses.

I bought a JVC GR-SXM250u Super VHS camcorder a couple days ago and the picture has horizontal lines flashing in and out so I can't see in the display both in pause mode and in record mode. He said he...

you may have a faulty camera there,,,or the vcr tape may be faulty and has spred some of the tape on the recording head try running a cleaning tape through the vcr first to clean the heads,,then use a new tape (not the old tape!) to try that out,, if its cleans the head up throw away the old tape so you never put it back in this vcr

My digital video camcorder mv700 displays a black screen on record mode.now when operating in play mode it displays no card.please inform me of nearest service canon centre.

Have you accidentally switched on the view-finder? In this case the LCD screen will automatically switch off (usually to save battery power)

Also have you accidentally switched your camera to still-shot camera mode, or something else, so the camera asks for the memory card in playback?

I sent my camera to a repair center for samsung and they replaced the ccd at no charge and it fixed the problem. I have used it and all is working and playing the old tapes as well. Thanks for your help, but got the answer from a blog as well as the address to send the camera to. Have a blessed day.

NO PICTURE

I had this with my Panasonic NV-DS60. I thought it would be the ribbon cables not making good connections from the camera lens electronics because I had a similar problem with another camera. So I took the whole thing apart and disconnected and reconnected the ribbon cables - unfortuantely this didn't work! So I thought there may be another connection I couldn't see so I tapped around the lens area with a hard object (tip of a screwdriver) and it worked! It may be well worth you tapping the case in this way (without pulling the camcorder to bits) on the top, about an inch back from the front of the lens a couple of times. I'm not an expert, but it worked for me! Obviously, don't hit it hard enough to damage it. Good Luck

Sony F55 Recorded Display

The filename (e.g. DSC0012.jpg) shows the image number, the filespec shows the date and time recorded. Most software will give you document info about resolution of the image. I wouldn't worry about what the battery status was when the shot was taken or how many other images were on the Mstick. I guess I'm not sure what you need.
