When I initially switch the camcorder on in video mode the cam shows a black lcd screen however if you play around a bit e.g. change it to camara mode take a few fotos, rewind the take and play it for while the screen eventually works. I'm not sure but I thnk it is getting progressivly worse. Thanks for any help

did you happen to drop the cam? there could be a technical error with the LCD screen. take it to the nearest Sony service center and have them take a look at it. you can try resetting the cam and see if it changes anything.
i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD. i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode. because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.
If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.
And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
There was an earlier post that explained the black ribbon between the LCD viewfinder and the body of the camera is split. You would have to buy a new LCD viewfinder for about $90 or send it back to them to fix for around $250. The same thing happened to my camera and I can actually is the split. If you close it down more than half way the picture shows up. I called Panasonic and they said you have to buy the whole LCD, that you can't just buy the ribbon. They don't even have a part number for just the ribbon. Good luck.
i am not sure that i solved that problem but last night i was trying to solve this problem , there was a lamp close to me . i focus the lam and zoom in and zoom out the handy cam. i was wonder that it works great. but i am still not satisfied because i dont know what is the problem ? and it can be happpened again. If somebody really knows this problem kindly tell me . i appriciated.
ya, i too had the same problem in this camcoder but it is the connection between the lcd screen and the cam main supply has been burnt so it won't be coming now u better just show it to the service man or repair it soon ,i say thiss piece of camcoder is a waste one the quality of the picture is not good just we can use it as a web cam
