Sony DCR-SR200: LCD backlight on screen is out

My husband and I purchased our Sony DCR-SR200 about 15 months ago and for about 3 months now we've been having problems with the LCD screen.  At first when we tried to take pictures/video the screen was dark, but you could make out images, and sometimes the screen would suddenly work again, as if there was a loose wire that made the connection it needed to make.  Now the screen is always dark except if you're outside you can see the screen perfectly, which leads us to believe it's something with the backlight perhaps.  The camera functions perfectly and we have been able to use it to record and take pictures still.

    Yup. 18 months with a DCR-SR200.The LCD panel is now dark. You can make out the image if you angle it in light or sunlight. Brought it to be repaired by a Sony authorized shop and they told me it would need a new LCD panel...$600. Not worth it. I can buy a new one now for that price. Here I thought Sony would be worth it...WRONG! I new I should have stayed with JVC.

It's on the cradle. See page 19 of the manual:

SOURCE: Sony DCR-SR200 screen slowly "scrolls" vertically like the V-Hold on an old television

After researching various flexible cable numbers from different posts, I found that the SR-200 uses a unique cable, FP-610, part number 187145711. This has been discontinued and replace with part number 187145721 (same cable also used in DCR-SR300).

If you are in doubt with your camera, just take it apart up to the point of seeing the ribbon cable. The part number is printed on the side.

I found two sources for this so far, www.nexttronics.com and https://servicesplus.us.sony.biz/sony-parts.aspx. Price ranged from $30 to $40 plus shipping.

We are experiencing some problems with our sony handycam dcr-sr200. The screen is scrolling upwards. It just started and we don't know how to fix it? Can you help?


Hi!
It's most likely a broken LCD flex cable which goes through the hinge. It's a common problem with these cameras. I repair them every day as I work in a Sony service center. If you're out of warranty, talk to Sony, maybe they are ready to pay half of the repair or something like that as I believe it's a factory fault.

Hope this helps!
