Question about Video Cameras

SOURCE: DCR HC-42 LCD screen problem
I have opened my camera and found that the flexible circuit/ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the inside of the camera is broken. This is due to poor design, in which the flexible circuit cannot withstand the constant movement of the LCD.
I have managed to buy a new cable from a Sony repair dealer, and will attempt to fit it later on this week.
The part number for the new flexible cable is:
Ref no. 171
FP-185 FLEXIBLE BOARD
if you are interested in how I get on with it, you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I won't bother trying to complain to Sony directly, because it is quite apparent that they really couldn't give a toss.

I would take it back to Radio Shack and demand your money back. I would do some research on sony's website and find the right cleaner for you camera.
