Hi,
There is flexible ribbon wire connected between LCD board and camera board. This wire seems cracked / broken.
You need to replace this wire.
Need further info, let me know.

My Sony handycam won't allow me to use the touch screen features in play mode. I can't rewind, play or fastforward the tape. It has reached the end of the tape - what now?


If the touch screen of the Camcorder is not working, please follow the troubleshooting steps.

Please make sure that you're using fully charged batteries.

Turn off the Camcorder and turn ON again and check the operation.

Reinsert the tape and check the operation

Try another tape to check whether the issue persists only with particular tape.

Try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the reset button behind the LCD panel.

Note: In the above figure, 8 represents the reset button.

If the issue persists again, please perform LCD screen Calibration and check if that helps.

Please follow the steps below to perform the LCD Calibration

If the issue persists again, service is required.

I hope this information will help you to resolve the touch screen issue of the Camcorder.

Screen has error message and won't play tape. What is wrong?


Hi,
This message appears when the loading tape path become misaligned (mechanically unstable). Your camera just need mechanical adjustment from any expert and it will work fine again. Contact any service man for this.
Thanks for using fixya.

First try a cleaning tape, if that doesnt work it most likely the tape path is out of alignment and you will have to send it in for repair.

Can my camcorder work with imovie and if so how do i get my computer to get download my video?


Open iMovie and set it to capture DV. (Click the camera shaped icon opposed to the siscor scissor shape) When you see a blue screen that says (camera connected) and the image pops on screen of image from tape on camcorder set in play mode, you hit the import button and it begins to capture digital movie using DV compression of whatever you have on tape. You should be able to control your camcorder with the video controllers underneath the project window to make selections for the in and outpunts on the tape you wish to capture. Then switch to edit mode by clicking on the scissor button and import the movies you just captured or use them from the clips menu, etc. renedr movie back to tape, if you wish by clicking back and forth from edit mode (scissors) and capture mode (camera silo) and render to and from tape.

All of a sudden some of my tapes will not playback and others will??


I have been experiencing the same problem with my Panasonic PV-GS120. I don't know the root cause or real solution, but I found if I keep playing the tape, rewind->play->rewind->play, eventually I would get the image back normal. I think I would try to clean up header with a header cleaner to see if it helps or not. If not, I plan to submit a request to Panasonic support to check out possible solution. Good luck.
