Apologies if already covered, couldn't find anything in the search.
whilst filming yesterday the DVX 100b; went from a state of working perfectly, then whilst i was changing angle open the LCD it stopped. The screen was all black, the eyepiece was registering nothing as well.
Sound was coming through just fine. Figuring that there was something wrong i pressed the preview button. the last second came up fine, i then put the camera in VCR made, rewound, that was ok as well when played back.
I then recorded a few seconds, nothing.
It would appear that the video is not making it from the lens to the brain of the camera. the machine has 128 hrs on it, i brought it @ 90hrs and the intervening has been fine.
My friend has suggested that it is a blown fuse. It was not dropped, i baby as much as possible but we are also working.. there was a lot of pollen in the air, and there had been a couple of spots of rain earlier. (shooting in the bush)
BTW i need to get it a good raincoat any ideas?
As it stands the camera has been dropped off at the repair shop, they will not be looking at it till next Tuesday at least.
Is this a classical Fault? Can i fix it myself? was scheduled for shooting next Tuesday. Mighty inconvenient. I always have a backup for my still cameras, obviously it is the same with video,
Thanks for any thoughts

Alright i am off to pick up my camera. All the info that i could get out of the repair place was "we reset the camera to the factory settings, all is working ok"
Did i miss some stupid thing ? they cleaned the Drum as well, is this the same as cleaning the heads?
