Sony DCR-TRV7E PAL - LCD screen failure

The picture on the side screen of my camera recently failed showing only red. Playing with the position of the screen by turning and twisting it I can sometimes get the picture back. I returned the camera to Sony to have it repaired as I find this a very good camera but they sent it back saying it is too old to bother with. Remind me not to buy Sony again! Do you have any ideas as to what is wrong and do you know if I can get spare parts to repair this? How does one open the side screen unit without breaking it open?
   Your advice would be miost appreciated.
George

SOURCE: Sony Mini camcorder DCR-HC21 problem with LCD and viewfinder. need help ASAP!!

i have the same problem,i opened the camera, i have taken out the flexible cable, its broken at the hinge...it looks like a bad design of the cable is the reason.

the cable is 1cm in width and at one point when it passes through the
hinge the cable is split into two with .5cm width each. one cable is cut at the pt where it enters the hinge, this cable is stretched to fit into the hinge, guess thats why it broke so soon...

It would be great if some1 can guide on from where and how to get this cable..

SOURCE: Sony DCR-SR200 screen slowly "scrolls" vertically like the V-Hold on an old television

After researching various flexible cable numbers from different posts, I found that the SR-200 uses a unique cable, FP-610, part number 187145711. This has been discontinued and replace with part number 187145721 (same cable also used in DCR-SR300).

If you are in doubt with your camera, just take it apart up to the point of seeing the ribbon cable. The part number is printed on the side.

I found two sources for this so far, www.nexttronics.com and https://servicesplus.us.sony.biz/sony-parts.aspx. Price ranged from $30 to $40 plus shipping.

How to troubleshoot a video camera when the LCD screen is dark or has no display, in a Sony handycam DCR TRV22E mini


If you see correct picture in Eye Piece view finder but dark picture in LCD that shows problem with connecting flexible wire between LCD board and Camcorder main board. It got cracked/ damaged or broken after some time due to open/ close of LCD in its position.
Replace that flexible wire and problem will be solved.
Post back further question if you have any.
Thanks.

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.


Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.
Thanks.

I have sony digital8 steadyshot camera...every time when i open the lcd i found it white...and no respnse


When you close the LCD into its folded position and use the viewfinder instead do you see a clear picture. if you see a clear picture then the multi strand cable than runs between the LCD and the motherboard has some of the strands broken. take it to a repairman to sloder the broken strands.

This camera may have a lens problem??


Hi,
Let me know bit detail of problem...
You can not see live view on LCD and view finder in camera mode and can playback old recordings and picture result is OK,
If yes, then its bad ccd imager problem and ccd imager will be replaced.

DCR-TRV265E is PAL camera and I assume that you are in UK.

Here I provide you information to save 400 or some thing.
Sony will repair ccd imager problem free of cost. You can have details on Sony CCD Support.

Sony announced free of cost repair scheme for subject problem. DCR-HC20E is PAL system camera so Sony Support UK can be visited for free of cost repair details as your camera model is listed there.
If you live in different country, let me know to guide you further.
Thank you.

No playback


your pal tapes played - in a separate pal player - shows whether your camera ' s tape guides are still in alignment ( your monitor must also be capable of playing pal ) ;
