    hey i have a canon UC1 8mm video camcorder and for some reason when i turn it on and its on the recording mode the screen just stays white and you cant see anything (and no the lens cap isnt on) but when you put it in playback mode it will let you view the tape, anyone know why it is doing this or how to fix it?

    Have you checked the white balance? It might not be on auto white balance.

    go to the menu in your video cam and there should be white balance settings, focus settings, etc. Select White Balance, or you might have to get to white balance settings through your VCR settings or Camcorder settings in Menu.
