Question about Sony DCR-HC32 W/ ULTIMATE HC32 HANDYCAM ACCESSORY KIT Camcorder

1 Answer

Problem with the lcd

I flipped open the lcd of my Sony Handycam HC32 and instead of the display being in color, as normal, it was in red and black. After turning off the camcorder and then turning it on again, there has been no display of any sort on the lcd. However I am still able to record using the viewfinder. What seems to be the problem? Thank you for your time and help, Bonny

Re: problem with the lcd

Possibble cause can be the broken flat cable between LCD and Main board. Regards, Arpi

Sony Handycam DCR-HC32, won't turn on, even when plugged into the wall outlet and with a new battery or no battery at all. Last week it worked but I couldn't use the flip viewer, only the eyepiece...

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I also got the problem of LCD screen not displaying anything (HCR 21E). Since I am an electronics engineer, I opened it on this weeked. And saw that flex wire for LCD has two parts (a) part for touch screen (b) part for lcd display. And in my case part (b) is broken. I checked that part on Sony website and it costs 22 USD.
I am not sure, how much will they charge for repairing.

Sony handycam dcr-sr40 lcd display

flip switch is not working or stucked, a loose wire connected to this switch is also possible. you may open the unit and check for it. a pro fix is better.

Sony DCR-HC32 display problem

replace the flexwire asap, it's hard to fix and you need pro help to do it. flexwire has a possibility of shortcircuiting the unit, the reason your small viewer started to show problem. Here in the philippines i'm not replacing it with an exact replacement, instead i'm replacing it with the more strong wires or cables such as the one used in laptop computers, still, you need profix to do it.
