Re: No Display is coming on the Flip out LCD

CCD sensor seems faulty . Sony should repair free of charge but otherwise it is not an expensive repair to perform : requires 1 hour labout at most. ( the componenet itself is not expensive ).

The coin size lithium battery is usually used to retain the settings .... e.g. date, time, preferences, etc.

Camera switching on ok but lcd sceen blank

Your problem can be the result of a number of causes - two common ones I will list here.
Most common cause would be a failed printed connecting cable between the main camera electronics and the flip out display panel. This special cable passes through the display hinge and is sometimes subject to failure.
A second possibility is a faulty display backlight.
You can check that the camera is still producing video output by using the AV cables conected to a TV display with the camera set to CAMERA mode.
I trust that this information is of assistance. RHN

SONY camcorder DCR-HC42 color stripes

Try with the side display closed. Does the viewfinder show the pix OK? If so, then the problem is isolated to the LCD display. There is a small ribbon cable between the camera body and the LCD that sometimes gets a small crack in it. Replacing the cable usually fixes the problem.
