    My DCR-SR40 camera has a black LCD screen and Lens view. I can play video but I cant record anything but audio. This problem is going off and on since warranty expire. I went to a SONY service centre and the reported Fault is negative but cost me $90

I also have a SONY 460x Handycam Vision CCD-TRV68 NTSC video Hi8 Steady Shot not able to record a picture but will record audio, playback is the same. Unfortunatly this occured after warranty was out. Seems like this might have been a manufactors defect.

How to fix screen?


It sounds like you may need a new LCD screen or lens. I'm having similar problem with a white LCD screen on a Canon camcorder, but it still records video, I just can't see what's in the frame or access menus. Does yours still record video? If so, it is the LCD screen.

My sony handycam screen isn't working when I want to record (neither the viewfinder or flip out screen). It is black when I want to record but I can still record sound. All other features on camera work...



This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Sony has a recall on some of these ccd imager problems. Contact Sony to see if your model applies, but it sounds like an imager problem on your pal format camcorder. Larry

Screen black. Everything else works perfectly.


To my understanding that you do not see live view in camera mode to record and camcorder playback old recorded tapes correctly and you get picture in LCD.
If it is true then please check lens cover that need to be slide down to get live view in camera mode. If problem still exist then 2 possibilities, either aperture in lens mechanism is bad or ccd imager is defective.
In that problem, camcorder needs qualified tech to fix it.
Let me know any further query.
