Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.

The touch screen on my Sony DCR-HC40E is not working


Hi!
The flat LCD cable which goes through the hinges has broken - a common problem with many Sony camcorders. You will have to give it to Sony for repair.

My Sony DCR-HC40E has a fault with the touch screen. The touch screen is not displayed so I am unable to play/edit or even record/view anything. The screen is usable if you know where the controls are...
