This camcorder hasn't been used for many years but when I switch it on although it has power to it, the view finder just has a vertical white line down it. It's the same whether it's on 'camera' or 'player'. Any idea what's wrong and whether it's fixable?
Does it work at all with out the view finder? If it does work completely then you can use the camera without the view finder. Point and shoot and the more you use it the better you get at it. Good Luck ... Digital Cameras
