Re: no image on the lcd screen

If the video out still works ? then your lcd cable has been nicked or worked loose - cost of repairs ( if a new part is needed ) makes sending the camera to a factory authorized service center your least expensive solution ; an external video monitor is one cheaper way out

Lens screen stuck open and no image on LCD view screen.

It is jamming, the only really fix is to have it repaired, that costs a lot and it is sometimes better to just replace the camera.

Hello, I have a sony handycam 105. Screen is dark and it is recording that way. Tried everything in the manual but no luck. Any sugestions. Thank you.

Sounds like the ccd has gone out, its the item in the camera on the back of the lens that transfers and processes the image that the lens is seeing to an image you can see on the lcd screen. Common problem from your description. I hope this helps. Chris

The led screen is black as is the video being recorded. Everything else seems to working. yes the lense cap is off. It as if no images are coming through the lense.

First, Please confirm that if LCD is blank then can you see the images in view finder ? If not then the CCD IMAGER is faulty and if LCD is blank and you can see the image in view finder then then a Flexible board which connect the LCD with the main unit is broken, Please replace these parts according to the symptom. Moreover, for your ease pics are shown below of both parts with part number.

First pic is for CCD IMAGER
second pic is for flexible board.

I can turn my camera on, but there is no screen or sight for recording or play edit.

normally, if you can turn the camera on everything should work including the lcd. if its just an issue with the imaging sensor, you wont see anything on the viewfinder (for the viewfinder to work you need to close the lcd screen) but should at least see the indicators, same in the lcd screen and view your videos in playback mode. if its an lcd screen issue, there would be nothing coming up in any mode the camera is set to. you can try to reset cam back to default settings (press reset while cam is on, its located on the side where you have the handstrap, just below the speaker), or do power reset (remove the batt and ac adapter for at least a minute). if still the same, your unit may require service. thanks. hope this helps.

No image on LCD screen

It sounds like you're receiving partial information on the LCD screen and that the image sensor isn't sending information to the screen.

If you know the sensor is working by recording some video on an SD card and being able to view the recorded video on your PC, then there is a disconnect between the LCD and the image sensor.

If you are not recording video to your SD card and only get black images or no files, the image sensor is damaged.

If you are recording video, but no image appears on your LCD for internal viewing/playback, you can try a firmware update if one is available from, but this is a discontinued item so there's not much available for support.

Hope this helps!

LCD has gone blank

Hi this is tech crazy

Based on the information you have provided, it appears that you may have
encountered this issue. To determine if the CCD (image sensor) is
working properly, please follow these steps:

1. Insert a memory card with known good images on it into the camera.

2. Power the camera on to the Playback mode.

3. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel, and observe
the LCD.

a. If the images are displayed properly, please proceed to step

b. If the images are not displayed, or a "NO IMAGES" message
appears, please ensure that the memory card contains known good images.

c. If the card contains known good images, and the issue persists
with a second memory card, the camera will require service.

4. Switch the camera to the Camera mode. You may use any shooting mode
(i.e. Auto, Manual).

5. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel.

6. Point the camera at a well-lit scene and observe the LCD and/or
viewfinder. If the scene the camera is pointed at appears on the LCD
and/or viewfinder, the CCD is operating properly. If the LCD and/or
viewfinder remain black, the camera requires service

Hope this solution helps you a lot

Please rate me on the above said solution
