    Hi, I came across your message on LCD Touch Screen flex cable... I have a Sony DCR-DVD505 handycam and the touch screen stopped working after sitting in the storage for a while... Everything seems to be working fine, but there's no way to know unless we can view it from the screen. Is the flex cable the problem? If so, do you have the DCR-DVD505 Flex Cable available? Otherwise, do you know where I can get it? Thank you so much!

DCS T70 LCD does work properly .I mean to say if i try to use one function another function gets started instead of desired function


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the touch screen panel is not aligned. You can try Calibrating the touch screen to resolve the issue.
Calibration option is in the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera. Calibration option enables you to perform calibration when the touch panel buttons do not react at the appropriate points where you touch. You can use the paint pen, touch the X mark displayed on the screen. The X mark moves on the screen. Once the calibration option is finished successfully, the touch screen should work.
The Calibration option can be done only if the Menu is accessible.
You can also perform a power reset before performing the Calibration.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.
This should resolve the issue.


Thanks for using Fixya.

The touch screen is not working. After resetting


If the buttons on the touch-panel LCD screen do not respond correctly or do not work at all, adjust the LCD screen calibration. Consult the instruction manual if specific information is required to perform this procedure.
NOTE: The touch-panel LCD screen cannot be calibrated if it is rotated.

Touch LCD points not opeating properly


How often have I heard the phrase - Read the Manual - however I admit to a slight case of panic as I have an important bit of videoing coming up soon....however as the Manual says... The solution to LCD touch screen hotspots not working is re-calibration.
With the Sony DCR-HC22E (also the HC17E/HC19E and HC 21E still Digital Camera this is achieved by
Eject the Tape
Disconnect any Connecting Cables except AC Adaptor or the Handycam Station
Slide the Power Switch Down to turn on the Play/Edit Lamp WHILE pressing the Disp/Batt Info for about 5 seconds
You should then get a screen with a cross in one corner
(The manual recommends touching this with the corner of a memory stick however I GENTLY touched it with a biro. In my case a further 2 crosses appeared and after touching them the LCD Was Re Calibrated.
I re-started my Camera and all the touch spots ( Fast Forward, Menu etc all worked perfectly) Remember you cannot Re-Calibrate with LCD rotated

Touch panel menu unaccessible


Me too! The camera was working perfectly until yesterday and when I turned it on today, it selectively ignores some buttons on the screen - and pressing the "Menu" gives me nothing. I've tried to reset it through that pin hole button, but it just resets the machine back to its default.
