Guide :Video Cameras : SC-D303 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Picture flickers on and off when in camera mode only.
I've recently run into a very odd problem. When my camera is in Camera mode, the view on the LCD and through the Viewfinder is almost black. You can tell the camera sees something because there will be rough stretched shapes occassionally. But mostly it looks like a black screen with flickers of white lines. If I record like this the image comes out exactly as seen through the lcd or viewfinder. The audio is perfectly fine. If I play with the zoom function, it will occassionaly flicker and then a normal picture will come through. It may stay like that for an hour, or for a few seconds.
