Customer Question
I have a JVC...

I have a JVC, GZ-MS230, Everio S camcorder. When I open the view window it is completely "black". I don't know if I am recording and what I'm recording. Please help.

Technician's Assistant: Are you experiencing the same issue in different shooting modes, or just one?

I only use it in camera mode.

Technician's Assistant: Has there been any damage to your camera recently (e.g. from dropping it or getting it wet)?

No
