Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

LCD Display is off

Hi, My webcam was working great till a moment ago, when the LCD Display went off. It is working fine when I close the LCD Panel. I can view through the viewfinder and take pictures/record video etc. But when I open the LCD Panel, the LCD screen is blank as well as the viewfinder. It looks like some of the buttons were pressed during an operation and display went off. Any help would be of great help. Thanks, Ravi.

    Hi Arpad,

    Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it. I think we are in the right direction, 'coz nothing big happened to get into this situation, my son was taking pictures and he clicked some options I think.
    WHat I read from the manual is, don't operate menu items when rotating the LCD panel. I suspect this might have happened.

    I spoke to Sony Dealer through various means, and I have to send it out to the factory..and it may cost a lot (with that cost and a bit more I would buy a new one).
    Can i find someone who can diagnise and fux this cable problem, if it is?

    Thanks,Ravi

Hello Rk22, possibble reason for this error can be the flexible cable FP-185. This flat cable is connecting the display and the main board. Please contact your nearest Sony Dealer/Service. Best regards, Arpad

Samsung 46" lcd tv changed t-con brd 5-mnths ago worked fine. started showing up/dwn pixel lines the went white. sound is great pic is white. what board would I chang now? mdl:ln46a530p1f


It sounds like your T-Con board went out again. You might re-seat your ribbon cables just in case you didn;t get them in good from the last repair. If that doesn't help I would say that your T-con board went out again.

My display doesn't work! I bought the phone for about a month ago and I just went back from a rainy day and the display just went white? What should I do?


Hi,


I think there is some moisture between the LCD screen of your phone and the flex cable,which is hindering the transmission of images on the screen.


The solution to the problem goes thus';


1.Remove the back cover of the phone and take out the battery.

2.With the help of a credit card,running it though the edges of the phone,take out the top back panel of the phone.

3.Using a hand dryer,dry out all the panel of the phone,but ensure you don't take the dryer to close to the panel.


4.If the problem persists after this solution,it means the LCD screen is bad and definitely needs a replacement.




Good day.

Hi LEE,
I just went over the specs on the 42PFL5603D. It doesn't have PIP. I'm sure the guy in the shop was confused with another TV.
There is a software upgrade for that model TV. It wouldn't give you PIP. But, It will fix some of the problems they are have with the TV right now.
Hope I answered your questions.

Blank screen, cannot get menu to display, but sound works


Does the lcd screen have a glow to it ? Or is it really dim if u get real close to screen u can see images moving ?
it it has a glow to it you panel lighting is fine but you control board is bad. If you have a dark screen and see faint images you panel back lighting is out u can check the power with a meter at the connection to inverter board on panel.

Tray is not opening


To open the tray this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it. After the unit is powered on: 1)Hit the "Open/Close" button 2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down with practice) 3)Tap gently, yet briskly with fingertips at area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to I think the problem is that the tray becomes unbalanced somehow. Because when a DVD is in, the drive opens fine, only when there is no disc do you have to tap on the unit.
