Display is upside down

it sounds like the tinny switch that detects the rotation of the LCD is blocked on the 180 degrees mode. it can be fixed but you need to disassemble the cam ! or may be try a little shock near the hinge... sometimes machines need a little kick !

Connecting flexible cable between lcd board and main board of camcorder seems lose, open lcd cabinet and insert flexible cable in connector of lcd board properly to get image in lcd screen.
Below image shows flexible wire and connector on lcd board of MHS-CM1 camera.
Hope these info will help you.

I have a Samsung MX20 Camcorder, when I turn the it on the LCD shows a distorted image with horizontal lines no clear image or anywhere near. Any help appreciated this was given over a year ago never used...

The horzontal lines would have to do with the screen unless you see those on the actual video footage on the memory stick.

Fact is I have this cam and know everything about it by experience the issues with these cameras one drop and there basically toast.

Now if there is not horizontal lines on the video itself and the video is clear the issue would be the LCD on the unit.

Let me know and update me with any new information.

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen

Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.

Screen does not display

I had the same problem. more than likely your connector cable between the camera and the display has become brittle over time and is beginning to break. as you open the screen the small wires inside the cable are separating. mine went from 30 deg view to 90 deg no display as yours is now, then 30 deg fuzzy display (cant make out the picture like a VHS when it needs heads cleaned) then the cable gave in and snapped. all the way through. Simply not a lasting camera. I got quotes and it was about $200 to fix. for that price these days u will pick up a better camera anyway. Good luck
