That particular thing happens when the VC-H1 is left on and the  
battery runs down. Obviously Richard accidently left the VC-H1 on. I  
have accidently done that many times. When there is not enough power  
to run the camera there is a blank screen but the other electronics is  
still running and it captures a blank image and sends it down. Since  
the transmitter is powered separately so it's not bothered by the  
battery running down.
