Question about Video Cameras
Goes from video recording mode to picture recording mode to picture playback mode on the last 2 turns
Posted by Anonymous on
I had the same problem with Samsung SCD103. It was sent to the factory January 2007($150.00) and everything worked fine until last week when the grandkids came down. The camera simply stopped displaying any image, the viewfinder went black. I suspect is a failure on the CCD. Now, I have a non-working camera that I've bought extra batteries for and lots of DV tapes. I won't buy another Samsung product now that I've seen the problems and apparent lack of concern for the customer!

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.
If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.
