Question about Samsung SC-D107 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Problem with camcorder

When I turn it on the screen is black. The dispay is still there but you cannot see anything. You can replay tapes. I bought a new battery and it is still black. Every once in a while it will work for a few seconds and then go black. Can you help? Is it fixable or should I start looking for a new one?

    Same problen here. It was working fine yesterday and then I tried to capture my son's first steps and lcd screen is black. When I close the screen, I can record. I have read on other boards that there is a faulty circuit that might need replacing for a nominal charge to me. For the money it costs, I can be on my way to purchasing a better model. Can the screen just burn out after much use? It appears very faint and then the whole camcorder shuts down until you shut the screen. Any clue what that is?

    I have the same camera, same problem. Had it fixed back in March of 2005 under warranty. Used the camera last, last year in June to tape my daughter's kindergarten graduation. Since then, it has been sitting in the case, zipped up, in my computer desk. Took it out Saturday to tape her play and it didn't work--blank LCD and viewfinder when recording, but works when taping. I have found this same problem listed in many different forums. Someone posted in a different thread about a class action lawsuit Gonna try to call them tomorrow to get them to fix it, but if not, I'm getting in on the lawsuit. Obviously defective product.

Sorry guys I seldom use my pc cause I am too busy with my works. It is confirmed they have already stopped fixing those bad ccds. As I've told others it is not fair.. hundreds of thousands of those camera with bad ccds are still on sale in the market, and if you're not aware of these recalls you will be fucked!!

I bought a JVC GR-SXM250u Super VHS camcorder a couple days ago and the picture has horizontal lines flashing in and out so I can't see in the display both in pause mode and in record mode. He said he...

you may have a faulty camera there,,,or the vcr tape may be faulty and has spred some of the tape on the recording head try running a cleaning tape through the vcr first to clean the heads,,then use a new tape (not the old tape!) to try that out,, if its cleans the head up throw away the old tape so you never put it back in this vcr

Screen is black

Try connecting it to a external monitor and see if it comes on. If now then most likely due to a faulty GPU. Check out for a DIY repair guide.

Bars across picture when replaying tapes.

The tapes were recorded in LP mode and the replay is set to SP mode. Switch from "EASY" to "P" and replay and you should be OK

Problem loading the NEW PSP ACTION REPLAY.

TADA! answer 4 u.
It's your battery. Take out your battery from the psp and look on the back of it. If, at the top, it says PSP-S110 and at the bottom it says made in China, be bummed. That's what mine said and the codejunkies website warns about that battery. Dunno where to get a new one though. Hey, diagnosing the problem is half the battle. Good luck.
