Sony has an extended warranty that may apply. They'll fix your camcorder for $15 S&H. See https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/specialrma.do for details.

White Screen. When I turn my camera on, it has power but, the display is white and you cannot see anything through the view finder.


hi,
did you check the picture through the view finder ? if it is clear, then there may be snag in the monitor, normally the connecting cable to the motherboard become break, if so should replace it.
if the picture is visible when you turn the monitor to either side, then you can confirm the fault of the cable.

The lcd screen on my hdr cx-150 is not working but can still record and take pics, how do i fix it?


hi,
does the view finder work ?
if yes, there must be the flat ribbon cable that may have been moved and disconnected, but if the view finder doesn't work too, there must be a board inside or a connector that has been moved (connectors a sometimes sensible to chocks, an in between the boards there are connectors too...) the LCD controler-processor board for exemple.
cheers

What is a Veiw Finder do I need it to work it just wondering thats thanks


The view finder is the small eyepiece you look through to see your subject that you are filming! If the camera has a seperate screen to watch your playback that can also be used as a view finder!
Please take a second to rate me

Well I saw on other post you can turn the screen outwards. It is very difficult to use....but you have to do what you have to do. For the view finder I am still searching for an answer..
