Does anyone know if the vx9000 has colour bars hidden away in its system. I know the dsr200 has a switch to turn them on and I can remember reading somewhere that the VX1000 has them and can be turned on by pressing certain keys when switching on.

Any help would be appreciated.

They are activated the same way:

Press down the Photo and Record button at the same time as you switch from Lock to Unlock they should appear.
Note that they are not "real legal" bars but do give you color bar signal.
