Question about Sony HVR-A1U Camcorder
Hi my A1U LCD screen is black and I cant figure out how to get it back,,Its black in all modes. The other day I noticed while I was using camera the LCD screen started getting darker and darker..The view finder is blurred out of focus, and the view finder lever does not fix it,,,,Although recording,,the image came out clear and find,,,,
Help this is my work camera
My LCD screen has also malfunctioned - some-one else has also posted a similar problem and has been told its to do with a carbon cable connecting the LCD screen to the camera that needs replacing.
Not sure about the viewfinder problem - is there a control to adjust the focus, or is that what you mean by the viewfinder lever?

The problem that you are experiencing with your SonyHVR-A1U camcorder is a common problem with this model camcorder. The ribboncable that connects the LCD screen to the main part of the camcorder goesfaulty and needs to be replaced. Sony also recommends that when this cable isreplaced you must also replace a modified part to prevent this from happeningagain. The estimate to replace both of these parts is $360.19 parts and labor.This also includes cleaning and servicing.We also offer a 6 month guarantee on the entirecamcorder, not just what it was sent in for. The estimate and the returnshipping are free even if you do not have the camcorder repaired. Please feelfree to call, email or post any questions you have and I would be happy torespond.Sincerely,Sheryl Bahrwww.VideoOneRepair.Com888-283-2228

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.
