Question about Samsung SONY Handycam DCR-HC21E MiniDV Camcorder
Good day, my lcd screen wont display any pictures. the lcd is blank and not functioning. thank you.
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.
