Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I was recording a video whilst travelling in a bus with my LCD display opened when all of a sudden the screen started to change colour. At first it started getting dark , then after a few minutes it changed to red . I shut it OFF and after a few seconds I put it ON again . It was still red. I tried to increase the brightness but didnt succeed.I am not to sure if i have changed any settings while trying to increase the brightness. Slowly but surely it darkened and a few minutes later it blanked out. I shut it OFF and after a few seconds I put it ON again , it didnt com on. I read the manuel and i presumed that the problem could be due to condensation. I followed the solution by opening the cassette and after an hour or so I put it ON. I could see trough the View Finder and was able to record,however as soon as i opened the LCD Display every thing blanked off. Once I closed the LCD Display I was able to view through the View Finder. This problem has never occoured before. [ All remaining functions like play back , record etc. are proper.] Please let me know what is the problem. What should i do as for now. your prompt action will be highly appreciated. thanking you.

The LCd connecting Flexible strip might be faulty. If you can view the picture in dark way,then the back light can be the faluty part. If they are all OK, then replace the LCD. The connecting strip is failing fast as per our experience and this costs US$ 21.00 and it is available with us.
