Re: LCD Monitor does not work

Could be the flex cable as I've replaced many of flexes in my time. Have you dropped or had a heavy impact?? Unless you know how to take apart the unit I wouldnt recomend it unless you follow the disassembly in the service manual. good luck

Hello, I opened the LCD monitor to right angles

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos

Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully

Lcd monitor on video just colored lines no picture

Let me know more about this, is the camera on play back or recording mode. In case of recording I am afraid you need CCD change. If playback, many factors affecting playback picture, but the worse thing is broken video head. Hope it helps

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.

Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.

LCD image upsidedown

There is a switch on the LCD pivot that detects which way the LCD is being viewed from. Check this switch.

My LCD Screen..

Your flat-wire connection between LCD monitor and the monitor PWB inside the camera is broken. can't fix it by yourself. Look for a Panasonic authorized service only!

LCD Screen

the flex wire of the lcd monitor is already cut ...go the service center for replacement of the flex wire...or to the other service center for fixing the flex is to difficult to fix the wire if you are not a technician cause that wire is like a strand of hair....
