\015 I have a HI8 Digital camcorder SCL700 that is not working at all. It's\015\012like new, very few hours on it only a half dozen tapes ever recorded. I\015\012thought the batteries were completely dead, bought a new one, still\015\012NOTHING! It will not play or record with the LED open, and even through\015\012the viewfinder it see a blinking error message like D.EMG - EJECT. The\015\012manual only says that means it needs service....[LOL]!!!Any help here??\015\012Steve\015

JVC GZ_MG330AU camcorder powers up & screen is displayed. But on the camcorder door the button functions on the side screen do not work. The 5 buttons on the actual camcorder body where the screen lies up against when closed do not work either. The zoom seems to work fine though.
You going to need to replace the controller board inside is what it sounds like. I would recommend you take this into a repair shop because the extent of the repair will not be something you could do.\015\012\015\012This woul ... Digital Cameras
I have the camcorder Sony DCR-TRV25E. Last Friday I was at the ocean and made home video on the beach. I was not close to water, but the breeze blew from the ocean and air was very moist. In the evening I tried to make video again, but the screen of the camcorder (camera on) remained black, though the player in the camcorder works well. My camcorder was in the dry home several days, but it is not working.

Hi - I recently bought an iMac OS X Leopard. iPhoto works really well with my Sony camera to USB port. However for iMovie I tried linking my Sony DigitalHandycam Model DCR-PC100E to Firewire socket and nothing happens at all. Camcorder works fine in isolation and with different leads works on my old Vaio PC and to television. Can I get a "converter" or do I need to buy a camcorder that appears on Apple website as compatible ? I hope you can help. Regards

Damaged Camcorder The camera on my Hitachi DZ-MV780A DVD Camcorder quit working. All the other functions work, but I can't get a picture through the viewfinder, or on the LCD panel.

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

I have a JVZ HDD camcorder and have suddenly found that the recorder is not working - when I turn it on the screen is staying blank - as if the lens cap were still on.

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder it will go black again. Personally, I think this is an issue with some sensors that gauge when to turn on the LCD display "ON" and Viewfinder "OFF" and vice-versa. Any help on this would be appreciated since there is nothing else wrong with the camcorder.
The most likely problem is a cracked ribbon cable that goes between the camera and the display. The cable needs to be replaced. Typical cost for this is around $40 or so plus labor. I would not suggest that you attempt this repair yourself as open ... Panasonic Digital Cameras
