My camcorder will play back just fine but when you switch to the camera mode the display screen stays black just like the lens cover is on and says standby in the display? Even if I look through the eye piece it is black. Do you know what I can do to fix it?

Re: Black Display Screen
First check the iris of the camera if it is
opening,you will see this when you look inside the lens of the camera
when you turn on and off the switch at camera mode if the iris is
opening....if the iris is ok the second problem may occurs of your
camera is the ccd image sensor....

Symptom shows its ccd imager chi failure problem and ccd imager chip
will be replaced in your camcorder.
CCD Imager chip is an electronic part that converts an image into
electronic signal for further process in camcorder circuit boards.
Take your camcorder to local camera repair shop for ccd imager
replacement as it is not user level repair and requires qualified tech.
Fixed it, at least temporarily
I had the side off my trv250 examining it, especially the CCD connection. I had read the post about soldering a capacitor to pins 1 and 3 (from the left) on the bottom row. I didn't have the specific capacitor on hand, but I started touching some of the small ones I did have to those pins. I found that after I touched a 100uF, 10V cap to pins 1 and 3 the picture suddenly came back to life and stayed that way after removing the cap. I have no idea how long this will last, and I've set up the cam on a tripod in the livingroom with the LCD display facing me so I can monitor it. If you, like me, figure you have nothing else to lose, you might want to give this a try. Note: my camera was suffering from the green smeary horizontal lines problem, and wasn't completely black. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.
