My LCD touchscreen on my DCR-SR45 fades to white

To resolve the issue,

Please open the LCD screen to locate the RESET button.
To reset the Camcorder, just press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.
Please make sure that the Camcorder is turned on while pressing the RESET button.

If the issue still persists, Power Reset the camcorder.

To reset the Camcorder, please remove the batterypack from the Camcorder and then set the Power Switch to ON for 15 seconds.
Then, reinsert the batterypack after 1 minute and check if that helps.

Sanyo xacti digital camcorder screen not working when opened out

It's most likely a damaged LCD cable which goes through the hinge - happens to many camcorders. You will have to contact your local Sanyo service center. I replace these cables for Sony camcorders every day.

Sorry for the bad news, but hope this helps.

My dsr pd170 lcd view screen is viewing in negative imaging. it seems to be filming fine, but the image quality slowly degrades while filming. Since we work at a camp and film things like talent shows...

first tell me when u close the lcd pannel , then is the view finder working fine , if not then
view finder cable is broken . u cant fix it your self as u need to open the camcorder .you must not be having the proper tools for that.
and regarding the lcd part , if the display is fine for a while ..and then
while using it it goes fade , shows grey colour or lines in it . then its lcd problem ...ur lcd need to be replaced .

I have the same problem with a DCR-HC45.The culprit is the ribbon between the circuit board and the LCD display,but my problem is worse,sometimes the screen turns white and I can't see anything on it.I have no idea from where to buy a replacement ribbon but I know how to replace it.

No images but records sound

To start ensure that you removed the cover from the lens.
Also remove battery and put it back in place to reset the camcorder.

If you get only sound on playback, connect the camera to a computer or TV, or play the tape on a different camera. If you get picture in there, then the camcorder is recording, but the video playback does not work because of a faulty LCD display.
If when you play back the movie on a different camera, or using the compute you still get no picture then the camcorder is faulty.
Faults that can cause black screen can be:
Lens problem. Faulty CCD sensor. Faulty controller board.
All this faults are not easy to diagnose and fix, if there is a fault , then it is better to take the camera to a repair shop.
