This looks catostrophic...

This is what I got when turned on my HD100 over the weekend. VF, Firestore and Tape capture all showed it. Tried different frame rates. No luck. Anyone care to diagnose? Should I take it in to the backyard and put a bullet in it? Looks bad.

yuck
looks like something went south (literally) in the CCD block.
did the camera have a sudden test of gravity?

< edit> i looking at it again, it doesn't appear to be a block failure ( since you can still see it) but somehow
the blue CCD has become misaligned.

The camera has been well cared for, no drops or impacts that I know of -- it's one of the first HD100's to hit the market...

What a shame, it probably won't be worth fixing considering the used value seems around $1500.

I tend to think this might be an electronic issue, though I am likely wrong. My understanding is that there are electronic means of fine alignment of the three separated images. If it was a loose sensor, I would expect to see rotational misalignment as well as parallel misalignment.

Did you try it without the Firestore connected? Something funny might be going on sufficient to affect timing. Bad firewire connections apparently do other bad stuff to the main board as well as frying the port.

It would be better to take the camera straight to the repair tech. Operator inteventions between first fault and the repair shop can sometimes mask a problem and make it harder to chase down.

Try resetting the camera through the menu. If it still persists, it's a CCD problem.

could very well be a loose board / connector inside

What Greg suggests could be valid.


I had a colour channel drop out on a camera head which is not of the GY-HD*** family.

The JVC KY-F50 camera head uses small cables and miniature plug connectors from a board to each of the sensors. These were fine however. The problem lay in a IC on another board which in that instance affected the green channel.
