Question about Canon MV530i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I was trying to record what is on the VCR onto my canon mv530i, but it didn't work. Can someone please help me?
If it's your own home movie, or one you have recorded yourself, you will have no problem, but trying to record a copyright controlled movie onto a digital camera will result in a blue screen, the Macrovision code embedded in the DVD or video tape will likely trigger the camera to refuse the video.
This could be one cause of the problem if you have set your AV inputs correctly.

OK get a set of cord that can be used, on the back of most VCR's there is RCA Sockets for Video & Audio out... generally Red & White & Yellow these go to the corresponding inputs on the camera's Video & Audio inputs, OR Correct adapter. The camera must have the correct A/V INPUT selected. Then start the VCR to "Play" the tape, and set the Camera to "Record" this will/should then record the output from the VCR to the memory in the Camera.

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
