Camcorder lcd screen light blue (blank) and camera won't turn off...
I have an Aiptek MPVR+cb camcorder still under warranty. It has worked pretty well since purchase. Since last week the following problems occur:
When I open the lcd monitor, the screen lights to blue, then a very quick dim, then blue screen. I am unable to display any menu or to record. Further, I am unable to turn the camera off via the power button, but must remove the battery and reinstall.
I have completely discharged the battery and recharged it as well remove the memory card in an effort to get the camera to work.
Thank you for any suggestions,

Sounds like maybe a connection somewhere inside the camera came loose? Or maybe the camera's firmware (camera's operating system) is damaged? I'm honestly not sure what would cause this. You could try contacting Aiptek customer service or you could post this issue at http://forums.steves-digicams.com/forums/view_forum.php?id=92
and see if anyone there is familiar with this problem.

Exactly the same thing happend to me with my brand-new Aiptek. Turns out it was the no-name brand SD card that I got from China which destroyed it. Aiptek was kind enough to replace it for free since it was under warranty. Aiptek's caution: Stick to brands like SanDisk, Dane-Elec, Kingston, Transcend or PNY. Purchase from resellers like Target, Best Buy, Newegg.com or Amazon.com. Avoid MINI & MACRO style cards. NO Sandisk Ultra II or Extreme III, class 6. AVOID Hi-SPEED!
I have this camera and unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to turn that sound off. It's odd because I have an IS-DV2+ also and if I turn the volume all the way down, that sound is muted as welll. I don't know what goes on at Aiptek...
I had the same problem. What I did was to remove then reinsert the battery and turn the camcorder on. I let the battery run down (discharge) completely, then plugged it in to the charger overnight. Doing a little more research on this camcorder, I found that if it hasn't discharged completely when you recharge then the battery holds less charge each time until finally you get next to no battery use. Discharging completely may be an option. Hope it works!
