LCD View screen problem Sony DCR-HC42

well if i'm not mistaking it could be the LCD board connection at the screen . but the replacement + labor will go from 120 to 170,

DVD to mini DV tranfer

Only way is Play burned DVD in dvd player and provide Audio- Video out (yellow-red-white) to mini DV camera that has AV Line Input recording facility. Or find any Mini DV recorder and record tape.
In that way you can record video again on Mini DV tape.
