Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC101E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony DCR PC101

The vertical and/or horizontal hold on the touchscreen of my camera is loose. Can see fine thru the viewfinder but I lose the function of the touchscreen. Seems like tightening a screw somewhere should do it but don't know how. Please help.

DCR HC42E (MiniDV), LCD backlight is not working, where as touchscreen functioning properly, viewfinder is also working good

There is strip flexible cord that connects the LCD panel which moves along with the hinges and it is possible that the strip has failed. So please check the continuity of the cord to confirm. It is possible only the first few tracks are damaged as the touchscreen works.
The strip can be sourced from Sony but take consensus before you remove and take out the strip.

Sony DCR-SR200 screen slowly "scrolls" vertically like the V-Hold on an old television

After researching various flexible cable numbers from different posts, I found that the SR-200 uses a unique cable, FP-610, part number 187145711. This has been discontinued and replace with part number 187145721 (same cable also used in DCR-SR300).

If you are in doubt with your camera, just take it apart up to the point of seeing the ribbon cable. The part number is printed on the side.

I found two sources for this so far, and Price ranged from $30 to $40 plus shipping.
