    Default Aaargh - my camcorder has stopped working!

    In the middle of going through some footage the other day my screen on my Canon MV450i just went blue (the screen with the little graphic of the tape going round). My camcorder refuses to play anything back and just shows the same screen, but other than that everything works fine.
    I suspect the tape heads are bust. Rang Canon and they want 144 to fix it. Anyone else had this problem or know a cheaper way of getting it fixed?

    Thanks

    Rob

    When it's set to record, you can view the footage on the LCD? Worth investing a few quid in a head cleaner first...

    I've had to clean the heads before but never just had the blue screen. I can see what I am recording, but when it plays back i just get blue. Will try to clean it and see if it makes any difference...
