And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD. If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor. Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip. Thanks.
Hi, Your camcorder Sony DCR-HC20E has bad ccd imager problem and that part will be replaced to have live view to record on tape. I can provide you ccd imager part number info if you want to repair it by yourself. CCD Imager replacement in this camcorder requires expertise and fair skills of soldering parts in PCB.
If your Sony camera DCR-HC30 doesn't show live view to record and playback previous recordings good then its problem of bad CCD Imager and this part will be replaced. Sony will repair your camera free of cost and you will pay shipping charges only. Click Sony CCD Support for details. Thank you.
I have the same problem. LCD & Viewfinder are black when on record mode, can only record audio. I am able to playback and watch on LCD all videos on HD and I am also able to perform all touchscreen functions on LCD. Spent 1 full hour w/ Sony tech on the phone and nothing worked. They ask for $311.00 flat fee plus any hardware replaced will be extra. Camera is 1 1/2 year old, have used it maybe 10 times and care for like a baby. Very frustrating specially when you call Sony and they have no idea.
On another forum www.camcorderinfo.com I was told to try removing the HD and reinstalling it. Since camera is out of warranty I will probably do that.
In my case the problem happened right after downloding videos to the PC.
