Hi, I have the Samsung SCD107 Camcorder and whenever I turn it on and enter camera mode all I see on the LCD screen and viewfinder is black. I have been told that the CCD sensor is broken. I was wondering if this is able to be repaired and how much i would cost to repair it.

The problem with your viewfinder and LCD screen could be caused by a faulty sensor, but the only way to really know is to have a technician look at your camcorder. I would first suggest having a digital imaging expert in a Best Buy® store look at the camcorder. If they determine that there is a defect in your camcorder the Geek Squad® precinct in the store should be able to have it sent out to a service center.
If there is a defect in the camcorder it can most likely be repaired, but the real question is will it be cost effective to repair or would you be better off putting that money towards the purchase of a new camcorder. The only real way to know would be to have a technician determine what is wrong, and get a quote on how much it would cost to repair. It would be impossible to guess the cost of the repair without a conclusive diagnosis.
