When I open up the view finder all the way the picture stays blank, if you open up the view finder about a quarter of the way the picture comes on, but once you move it you lose it again.

Picture rolls when view finder is fully open. When partially closed it stops rolling. Sometime it stops rolling when view finder is slowly opened to full position.


Most likely a ribbon cable with a bad connection on one or more of it's conductors. It requires dismantling the camera to expose both ends of the cable to check the plastic clamp connectors to this cable on both ends. Another possibility is a partially damaged ribbon cable making intermittent contact. If it's the cable, it requires a replacement. Do you feel you are capable of this level of service? If unsure, then best to leave to those who are comfortable with this type of work. Nimsgame

Hi, I have a Panasonic NV-GS17EB.It is working perfectly fine and a nice camera. But recently the LCD view finder is giving some problem. It goes blank when I open the LCD view finder fully. But it...


the ribbon cable that carries the signal to the screen sounds like it has become damaged
thatcan cause the problem
when it is all the way open it stretches the cable resulting in a gap to form, so when only open part of the way there is still a signal. see if there is anything in the hinge that might be causing the stretching of the cable, as that is almost surely the problem..

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.

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
