I have the SDC435 - I suggest you set the exposure to manual, try and find the EX-UP setting, possibly in the exposure menu. This will be something like x2, x4, x64 x128. You are going to need long exposures to see anything.

Also look for the AGC setting - set this to High if possible.

If you have a manual for the camera, can you scan it as post it here or PM me and I'll take a look and see if I can help.
