Re: lcd viewer

Probably the ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camcorder is cracked or getting pinched somehow.

Hi I have a sony handycam DCR-HC21 and sometimes the LCD screen is black so you can not see what you are filming. You can still record with the LCD door shut. Any ideas why it is not working?

It could be a lose ZIF/ ribbon cable. This happens alot with adjustable LCDs. You might be able to fix it by taking the LCD's back panel of and making sure the connections are secure. It also might be a bad switch, Does it transfer off the viewer when it's still open?

Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.

Blue screen

the video ribbon is probably not secure in its connector and as you open the door it is pulled from the simple housing it connects to these cameras are absolutely terrible the lcd screens will always fail because of a design defect in the ribbon and its routing and fastening.Inside the lcd screen to secure it they use electrical tape as a fastener so ridiculous.

CCD sensor failure . Shortly you will have only blank screen in capture mode. Should be replaced by your agent free of charge.
