Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder LCD goes black purchase 4 year back. Any chance to repair LCD.


If you are able to see picture in the viewfinder (eyepiece) on closing the LCD, then the cable connecting the LCD to rest of the camera has gone bad and needs replacement. Take it to a Sony service centre. They will charge Rs 750 for service charges and about Rs 700 for the cable. You can save the service charges if you replace it yourself, but I'll advise against it unless you are conversant with these sort of precision jobs.

You have an intermittent problem that is probably an open as opposed to a "short". An open is when a connection(s) is not being made that needs to be, a short is when a connection(s) is made that shouldn't be.
Quite often the "open" is a solder connection or a plug in circuit board connection. The solution of tapping the side and the problem being temporally corrected is good news.
The bad news is you need an experienced Sony camcorder technician to handle this problem. Disassembling the camcorder, finding the problem, solving the problem, running the camcorder while apart to locate the problem and test for reliability, and the final reassembly is a delicate procedure. More damage, or worse fatal damage, may be done to the camcorder if the repair is not done improperly.
