Welcome to the forum.
Exactly what are you Capturing, and exactly how is the device set up, and connected to the computer?
Also, what OS version are you running?
Good luck, and please let us know a bit more.
HDV from Caon XHA1, Firewire, Windows 7. Thanks, Alan.

Thank you for that info.
With HDV Capture, the Program Monitor will not preview the Capture, but the LCD display on the camera will show what is being Captured. This is a limitation of Premiere with HDV Capture.
Some users like a free program, HDVSplit, that will show a Capture preview, plus allow several other functions. A lot of folk feel that it would have been a better Capture module, than the one that Adobe included.
Hunt, Thanks for this. Another limitation is that when I stop capture the camcorder also stops, whilst I would rather it ran on to the next clip. I have only just loaded Elements 12 and this screen blanking seemed worryingly reminiscent of whole sections of miniDV footage on the timeline of Elements 4 that were repeatedly blanked with a red screen with Japanese or other script. Glad you are there. So now I'll just live with it. Alan.
