Question about Sony DCR-PC55 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I turn on my Sony DCR PC55 I have no display from the lens what I am viewing on either the Camer for Pictures or for Video capture. The display just stays black, it shows all menus, just nothing from the lens and yes nothing is covering the lens.

11/27/2006: Important Notice About Your Sony® Product
Thank you for your support and patronage of Sony products.
It has come to our attention that a limited number of products, manufactured before March 2004, and incorporating a certain type of image sensor device (CCD), may exhibit the following:
When the product is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder exhibits either a distorted image or no image at all. We have determined that this only occurs in a limited number of devices, but may be accelerated if they are exposed to hot and humid environments.
Until March 31, 2009, Sony will repair, free of charge, affected products exhibiting the above-mentioned symptom where it is caused by the image sensor device.
There is a $15.00 charge for shipping and handling. A credit card is required at the time the order is placed. You must provide a mailing address in the United States or U.S. territories.
********************** UPDATE FROM SONY: **********************
I just got off of the phone with a Sony customer service rep, and everything was taken care of. Sony required a credit card, but the rep helped me out and had UPS send me a shipping label.
**Sony is aware of the problem and is fixing it for free (except shipping costs.**
If you have a different model number camera, enter in your model number and use the left hand menu for "News and Articles." Find an article titled "Important Notice About Your Sony® Product" and follow the instructions.

If you are qualified to open the Camcorder then you can follow what I am going to say. The most important thing is to have the right precision screwdrivers so that you can open the side of the camera that has the LCD screen. The problem with it most likely to be the socket that goes to the LCD screen inside the camcorder that is no longer connecting properly so that you have to put it back an seal it with some reinforcing tape. if you are not sure on how to do this please tell me so that I can send you instructions and the pictures to show you how it's done.
