Camcorder lcd screen problem

I have a 18 month old Sony Hard disc camcorder (DCR sr 52). Its LCD screen started playing up. Picture keeps moving up continously. Initialy when problem started, if I wait for some time it used to stop moving up. Now it doesn't correct itself. Recording and touch screen still works, although you don't know what you are recording or what function you are touching on the touch screen. images can be played on tv screen. I transfered all my images to my computer and Reset the camcorder by pushing reset button hoping that this will help but it didn't.
Please help

There is 2 possibilities, either aperture of camera jammed and doesn't open or CCD Imager got defective in your Sony DCR-DVD105 camcorder.
Let me know if you have little experience of camera repair to guide you further.

Brace yourself for bad news.

The same thing happened to me about a month ago. The chip (called a ccd, I think) in your camcorder that processes the images received through the lens is broken. These chips were used in a variety of cameras and camcorders by various manufacturers although Sony never issued a product recall when the problem came to light. What Sony did offer was a free repair to anyone suffering from this problem - valid until October 2007!

There is more information available on Sony's website and the various forums out there. There is also talk that knocking or tapping the case can provide a temporary solution. Whether you choose to risk it or not is up to you but as we generally use camcorders for one-off events such as weddings, birthdays etc, it's hardly a solution in my opinion. My advice is to download to your PC any unarchived material as soon as you can and save up for a modern DVD format recorder. They have dropped in price recently and would cost pretty much the same as having your Handycam repaired privately.

I am in the process of doing this myself but as playback is not effected by the broken chip I don't anticipate any problems with downloading to my PC. Unfortunately, Picture Package is not compatible with Windows Vista, although I haven't found a solution to that one yet!

SOURCE: LCD buttons not working

I haven't the solution, but this may help some users. The camera has a LCD calibration menu. If LCD doesn't work properly use the remote control to get in to it. Try to calibrate the screen. This may be some help however didn't work for me, because I got no response from LCD panel. To calibrate remove all data (disc and memory stick). Click play/edit button, then use the remote control to p-menu > setup > standard set > calibratio. good luck!

How do I get the sony handycam dcr-hc30ntsc to show me a pictuer wale recording or any thing


If camcorder does not show live view in view finder and lcd screen but shows good picture in play back of old recorded tapes then ccd imager chip is defective in camcorder and need to be replaced.
It is not user level repair as soldering work is needed to replace ccd imager chip.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

How to troubleshoot a video camera when the LCD screen is dark or has no display, in a Sony handycam DCR TRV22E mini


If you see correct picture in Eye Piece view finder but dark picture in LCD that shows problem with connecting flexible wire between LCD board and Camcorder main board. It got cracked/ damaged or broken after some time due to open/ close of LCD in its position.
Replace that flexible wire and problem will be solved.
Post back further question if you have any.
Thanks.

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.

Connecting to computer & importing images from HD of DCR SR 42


Mine does the same thing.After it says "connecting" on the LCD of the camcorder, there is nothing to actually do on the camcorder. With the Sony SR42 software installed (supposed to come with the camcorder on purchase-but maybe you can also find it for free online), the software called Sony Picture Utility (which is part of the big packge of software) opens up automatically and offers to either burn your photos/videos to directly to a compact disc, or to import them onto the computer's harddrive.
That's how it happens for me.I'm not-tech savy or anything. Hope this helps.

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.
