Quite possibly it is the flexible cable that has broken. This is a rather common problem for this sony model and others using the same part. I have just repaired a HC21e with this problem myself.

If you are handy you can fix it yourself. The sony part number is 1-864-761-11 (FP-185 flexible PCB)

You can google that part number and shop around. Prices vary wildly!

Once you have the cable all you need is a small phillips head screwdriver, patience and a steady hand. Use the old cable as a reference to see how to fold the A and B sections together and how it is routed through the hinge. Take notes and photos might be good too.

Don't try it if you are not good with your hands or patient.

Good luck!

Do you hear start up (ding) soundin camcorder? does it eject tape?
If yes, then flexible connecting wire between lcd board and camcorder board is cracked/ broken and need to be replaced.
If you can apart camcorder and have little experience in electronics stuff repair, I can provide you part number of that flexible wire info.

"Lens cover not open" message


There is a switch sensor which will detect if the switch is open. Try switching rapidly a couple of times, as dust must be lodged.

The problem is a bad CCD inside the camera. I Sony was providing free service for some of their other models but failed to provide service (recall) on these models. contact Sony at 1-866-703-7669

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.
