Hello! I have a RCA VHS-C camcorder that has a malfunctioning viewfinder.


Interesting that it has worked so long. You might want to consider a better camera since even the cheapest digital video camera today will have better video than a VHS-C camcorder. With the VHS tape it only recorded analog signals and each copy of the tape would degrade. Most cellphones today will take video that is orders of magnitude better than a VHS-C unit . . .

CC542 model RCA


This is a very old camcorder. Most likely it needs some significant work done on it in order for it to work for your needs.

Sony ccd TRV108 NTSC does sound recording only black screen in viewfinders and lens cap is off. thanks battery charged [email protected] thanks


On these camcorders the "RCA" video jack is a switching jack. This is so the cam will record from an ext video source instead of live video. Try exercising this switching lack by repeatedly plugging in and unplugging an rca video cord. This may be a solution to your problem.

Recording problem


Knowledge Article C116445
There is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCD when attempting to record. Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if there is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCD when attempting to record. NOTES:
  • Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the viewfinder or LCD status after completing each step.
  • It may be necessary to refer to the operating instructions provided with the camcorder for information on how to perform a task on your specific model.
  1. Ensure the lens cap on the front of the camcorder has been removed.
  2. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted in the camcorder.
  3. Ensure the STANDBY/LOCK switch is set to the STANDBY position.
  4. Turn on the camcorder and set it to the CAMERA mode.
  5. Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD.
  6. IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD. To conserve power, the viewfinder and LCD will not display at the same time. To use the viewfinder, the LCD must be closed.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, reset the camcorder to factory specifications.
NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing the troubleshootin

The viewfinder is dead


Thats an oldie but still a goodie.. this camcorder was made by Hitachi for RCA and its doubtfull that theres any parts available for it. You are probably gonna have to look around for someone with old camcorders laying around and swap out the veiwfinder . these units are also famous for the belts to go bad in them. if you take this unit to a servicer they probably have a flat rate as I've seen online under camcorder repairs unless you think you can do it your self?? Good Luck PS If I get a good look at the veiwfinder and if theres a plug or is it hard wired I may have one as I got several camcorders around the place i use for opsolete parts.
