Hi Erwin and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary test (if have not been done); determine if the viewfinder would display previously recorded videos and/or at least the indicators such as the tape counter, Date/Time and others:

  • • if no, then the viewfinder itself is faulty;
  • • if yes, then the CCD sensor of the camera has failed.

Either of the above would require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even perhaps a soldering iron?
