Multi-coloured vertical lines on LCD screen and view finder

When I put my handycam on record mode, they are multi-coloured vertical lines on the screen and viewfinder. When I press 'Record' the handycam records the vertical lines, however, it can still play previously recorded video. Does anyone who can help? Thanks

For the handycam DCR-PC101E, on turn on no picture can be seen on the view finder or the LCD screen. While recording audio is getting recorded but no video is getting recorded. The LCD screen stays black....


If you are qualified to open the Camcorder then you can follow what I am going to say. The most important thing is to have the right precision screwdrivers so that you can open the side of the camera that has the LCD screen. The problem with it most likely to be the socket that goes to the LCD screen inside the camcorder that is no longer connecting properly so that you have to put it back an seal it with some reinforcing tape. if you are not sure on how to do this please tell me so that I can send you instructions and the pictures to show you how it's done.

Just call 1-800-222-7669 Sony Support. They will send you pre-UPS label and you mail your camcorder to Sony support. They will replace the LCD View finder for free. I did it about a year ago.

LCD DISPLAY BLANK


The LCd connecting Flexible strip might be faulty. If you can view the picture in dark way,then the back light can be the faluty part. If they are all OK, then replace the LCD. The connecting strip is failing fast as per our experience and this costs US$ 21.00 and it is available with us.
