Digital Watchdog camera - very dark image

Anyone ever have this problem with one of their cameras?

This is not my camera, btw. I found this video on Youtube and it's exactly what i'm experiencing. Voltage is good and the trouble follows the camera. Here's what I suspect: This camera is pointed directly at the sun when it's going down, so i'm wondering if the image sensor itself could be damaged?

Yeah, the CCD can be damaged by a steady dose of harsh sunlight .
