    Yes, when I want to record something it's just black. When recording You can hear sound, but there is no picture just a black screen. It does play tapes that I have recorded in the past just fine. Does it need a new sensor?

CCD sensor failure . Shortly you will have only blank screen in capture mode. Should be replaced by your agent free of charge.

How do I get my Samsung sc d 353 mini DV tape recordings on computer

To transfer the recordings from your Samsung SC D353 Mini DV tape to your computer, you'll need to follow these steps:

1. Connect the camcorder to your computer: Use a FireWire (also called IEEE 1394) cable to connect your Samsung SC D353 Mini DV camcorder to your computer. Most computers have a FireWire port, but if yours doesn't, you can purchase a FireWire adapter card.
2. Turn on the camcorder: Turn on your Samsung camcorder and set it to VCR mode.
3. Open the video capture software: On your computer, open the video capture software that came with your operating system (e.g. Windows Movie Maker, iMovie on Mac) or a third-party video capture software (e.g. Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro) that supports Mini DV tape.
4. Start recording: In the video capture software, select the option to capture video from a DV device. Click the Record button in the software and then press Play on the camcorder to begin playing the Mini DV tape. The video should be captured and recorded onto your computer.
5. Save the video: Once the video has been captured, you can edit it if necessary and then save it to your computer in the desired format.

Note: If you do not have the original video capture software, it is recommended that you search and download compatible software before beginning the transfer process. Additionally, make sure your computer has enough storage to store the transferred files.

Blue screen

the video ribbon is probably not secure in its connector and as you open the door it is pulled from the simple housing it connects to these cameras are absolutely terrible the lcd screens will always fail because of a design defect in the ribbon and its routing and fastening.Inside the lcd screen to secure it they use electrical tape as a fastener so ridiculous.
