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.

SOURCE: LCD View screen problem Sony DCR-HC42

well if i'm not mistaking it could be the LCD board connection at the screen . but the replacement + labor will go from 120 to 170,

have you tried to open the screen, really slowly and see if it shows any life !.
you can try to get an stimate at sony, and see how mush it will cost you repair the machine.

there is not easy way to fix it, the screws are small and they can be lost really easy.sorry

IN VIDEO AND CAMERA MODE , NO PICTURE IS SEEN , ONLY WAVES ARE SEEN IN THE MONITOR.WANT TO KNOW , HOW TO FIX IT.CAN YOU HELP PLEASE.MY CAMCORDER IS DCR-SR300 MODEL.


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

IN SONY HANDY CAM HDD XR150 - LCD SCREEN THE SOME COLOR LINES ARE DISPLAYING INSTEAD OF PICTURE . THE PROBLEM OCCURRED AFTER REMOVING THE HANDY CAM FROM THE TV SET AS PLACED IT OVER 30MIN.


You need a new sony display flex cable installed in your camera.. it is a rather simple procedure.. dont let anyone tell you it is going to cost 300-500.00 to fix. the cable or flex that makes the display viewable is called a LCD display Flex. If you don't get any image on your display, the image has lines, display has no backlight or anything like that, replacing this flex cable should fix the problem.
you can buy the flex cable on ebay for less than 30.00 and the fix is rather simple.. the display has the flex cable on the back side and there are 3 screws that holds the display on the camera body. when you take them out of the camera using a PH00 small screw driver, you can then take the flex cable out of the display and easily replace.. it doesnt take rocket science to take these out and replace them.. good luck.. remember... you can buy the flex cable that makes the display viewable and then when it is replaced you will then be back in business with your camera.. good day....David...Mt Holly, NC

Display rolls on the handycam DCR-Sr300


Try resetting your Camcorder in the switch on mode.
If it does not help, switch the camcorder off, remove the battery, switch ON the cam for 15 sec and then switch it off and insert the battery again and try. This may help too.
Else the handycam needs a service.

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.

SONY camcorder DCR-HC42 color stripes


Try with the side display closed. Does the viewfinder show the pix OK? If so, then the problem is isolated to the LCD display. There is a small ribbon cable between the camera body and the LCD that sometimes gets a small crack in it. Replacing the cable usually fixes the problem.
