Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.


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.

Black LCD Screen when trying to record new video or take new pictures.


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.

Did you fix yours?
