Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
As described above..
when i turn on the camera on to "camera mode"
i can see out of the viewfinder but when i open
the lcd screen, the viewfinder of course goes blank
but the lcd wont show anything i flip it over and close
it so that the screen is pointing out, and the viewfinder
turns on again, and i can still use the screens buttons
to browse through the menus and what not..
same goes when it is in "play/edit mode"
would anyone know what exactly is wrong??
or what i can do to fix it on my own..
ive had this camera for over 3 years, and would
like to get it fixed soon, before my brother graduates
from the navy rtc..
I have the same problem but with a sony dcr- sr300. can someone tell me the part number?

There is a cable that goes from the main camera body to the LCD panel that may have a crack in it or the connector may be loose. These cameras are not the easiest to work on because everything is very compact and the internal connection cables are short making access tricky at best. The potential to incur further damage is significant enough that I would suggest that you seek a service shop to repair this. If the cable is the problem expect a parts cost in the $30 range.
Keep us posted.

There is connecting flexible cable/ wire between lcd board and camcorder board which is cracked and requires replacement.
I can provide you part number of flexible cable and rest is your own skills like how to apart camcorder and lcd section.
If you are familiar with camera repair, let me know to proceed.
