My Canvas went black.  Can't get...

I did something and my canvas went black and now I can't figure out how to get the video back.  Can someone help? I took some time off and now forgot a lot but working on remembering as I got work now.  ;-)

Use the drop-down menu at the top of the Canvas window to make sure it is set to RGB mode.  Also make sure that the Timeline playhead is actually on a clip and not on a gap or slug. -DH

Hi David Actually I had to call my friend in San Francisco for the answer and stupid me!  I should have known what I did ut I was away from FCP most of last year. I hit CMD-W and lost 2 windows.  I got them back but then the canvas was black. Answer was hit the W key again and it cycles through 3 windows.   I tried what you recommended to no avail. Thanks thoughAllen
