Hi, there.. I have manage to open up the LCD assembly. Confirmed it is the FP-185 is faulty. But am struggling to remove the hinge cover. It seems something is stoping it coming out from below (closer to main body). Any tips/help would be appreciated. Thanks.

LCD screen not working on my Sony Hc 42 camcorder


Hi
The LCD cable is faulty. You need to replace the LCD cable from SONY authorised service center.

It's a common problem as this cable is bend each time when we open the LCD screen, so the cable become faulty.

SONY DCR-SR300 with CMOS viewfinder


I suddenly had similar problems with my SR300. I replaced the flat ribbon cable (looks orange) between the body and the LCD display and camera works like new. The ribbon cable is subject to cracking the internal wires where it flexes when you open and close the LCD display. There was also a new part number for the cable so I suspect it is a known problem.
