Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

DCR-VX2000 viewfinder color issue then brightness issue

DCR-VX2000 viewfinder went from displaying in color to a yellowish tint. It stayed that way for awhile then started displaying in full color again but now the display is quite dim. Cannot adjust brightness enough to be very useful unless fully zoomed into a subject. LCD display and other camera functions are normal.

I baby this camera and am unaware of any jarring of it. However, it still could be a loose connection.

Any suggestions for this issue of how to disassemble to look at ribbon cable connections?

TIA

SOURCE: LCD Display is off

Hello Rk22, possibble reason for this error can be the flexible cable FP-185. This flat cable is connecting the display and the main board. Please contact your nearest Sony Dealer/Service. Best regards, Arpad

Problem is in bad contacts in LCD area. In some cases it is sufficient only to clean the flat cables connecting LCD and the main board. The solution for this kind of problem is a job for a pro. In order to stay on a safe (rather than sorry)side, please contact a technician with the best references. If you need more info please advice

Yellow screen


There are a variety of problems that can happen to the display monitor of an Acer laptop.
The most common problem is the screen fading or becoming too hard to see.
This can be corrected by adjusting the brightness levels.
Another common problem involves incorrect color, which can be resolved by adjusting the display color settings.
Yet another big problem is the display freezing or appearing jumpy, which can be resolved by updating the display driver.

Hold down the "Fn" key.
Tap the right-arrow key to brighten the display screen.

Tap the left-arrow key to darken the display screen.
Release the "Fn" key to save your display settings.
Color
Right-click on the desktop and click "Graphic Properties."
Adjust the screen resolution by clicking "Display Settings" and choosing a resolution setting from the drop-down menu.
Click "Apply" to check the resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.

Adjust the color of the screen by clicking "Color Correction" and moving the brightness or contrast slider to the right or left.
Click "Apply" to check the color resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the color settings.

Click "OK" to exit the Graphic Properties application.
Update the Display Driver
Right-click on the desktop. Click "Personalize," "Display Settings" and "Advanced Settings."
Click the "Intel Graphics" tab and choose "Monitor Properties."
Click "Driver."

Click "Update Driver" and choose "Search Automatically."
Click "Install" to install the updated monitor driver. After the driver has been installed, click "OK" to restart the laptop when prompted.
Yellow screen
Yellow tinting in monitors can be caused by either a software calibration issue, bad cables or a worn out display and backlight.
Before you assume that the issue is a hardware one, determine if there are software settings that affect the color or if the cables are working correctly.
After checking these items, and if the yellow tint only occurs on one monitor and you cannot eliminate it, the problem is a display hardware issue and it is less expensive to replace the monitor.

Unplug the power cord from the monitor and replace it with another one.
This is a standard power cord used in printers, monitors and desktop PCs so you can trade it for a cable from another device.
Turn on the PC and monitor to see if the yellow is still there.
Turn off the computer and monitor.
Replace the video cable with another VGA cable from another monitor.
Use one from another computer before going out to buy one.
Restart the computer to see if the yellow tint is gone.
Right click any area on the desktop and click "Properties" from the list of options that appears.
Choose "Display Settings," then "Advanced Settings."
Select "Monitor" and click the "Calibrate Color" button.
Wait to see if the yellow tint goes away.
Locate the temperature color settings on the monitor.
Adjust these to see if there is a change in the color.
A warm color setting will give the screen images more of a yellowish tint.
Click on the "Start" icon, then click "Control Panel" and "System and Security" and choose "Device Driver."
Locate the video driver and click "Update."
Select the option allowing Windows to connect to the Internet to find an updated driver.
Wait for the update to complete in a few minutes.
Expect the yellowing issue to disappear.
Connect the PC to another monitor to see if the same problem occurs.
If the yellow tint does not appear on the newly connected monitor, the problem is a bad backlight or display and the monitor should be replaced with a new one.

Yeah, I had mine checked for the same thing. The "blue" - There's only three - red yellow blue- portion of your tube died. Not repairable. Last I checked it costs at least $1,000 for a new 40 inch tube. Good luck. Mine went to the garbage dump!
