I have seen backlight problems on the external LCD display. Take a flashlight and shine it on the external display to see if you have a picture. If you can see a faint picture, most likely either the backlight or backlight inverter has failed. Those LCD modules can be tricky to service because of the size. I would recommend a qualified tech for the job

Hi,
If you close lcd screen in its position, do you see image in eye piece (view finder) ?
If yes, then replace flexible ribbon connecting wire between camera board and lcd board to get picture in lcd screen.
Let me know if you need part number of flexible ribbon wire.
Thanks.

Had the same problem. It's ainternal flex wire connecting LCD with camcorder. Got from the repair shop did it by miself and it's like knew. It's a common problem as this cable is bend each time when we open the LCD screen, so the cable become faulty.
With a viefinder the problem is related to the view finder cable ,it must have got broken as it gets hard while the usage. good luck

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

Clean the heads with a Panasonic MiniDV cleaning tape. I've seen many cameras come through our shop with this problem - a quick cleaning made a world of difference.
