Lines on the lcd screen or tv

Sound is fine. I tried to connect directly to the tv but it is the same. What can I do?

I have colored lines on the left side of my screen

Please do not try to repair it,it would cost you more than buy a new tV. I suggest you to buy a new one while today Tvs are affordable and you can own a bigger screen like 50" for just 300$.
good luck and Zkeep calm,the best on Fixya

Screen is black when in record mode but still record sound

Hi Keith: You can check menu settigns there? Take pics/videos and this appears black in the pc monitor after transference or download pics/videos? If your answer is yes, dont sound like a LCD problem.

The other choice, could be a malfunctioning CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image sensor... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check this link for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Hi there, my camcorder is DCR hc 96 and when i turn it on horizontal lines can be seen on the lcd screen and also on the screen of the tv what could mean

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Lcd screen lines in sony handycam dcrsr45. when i start camcorder there is vibration type lines in lcd screen,not white lines just picture and horizontal vibrations which are recorded in was...

The most common problem with this camcorder is the lcd cable assy. It is the cable that comes in from the lcd panel assy to the internal board assy. I have seen possibly 100 of these cameras and different models and this fixes it everytime.
I hope this helps.

No display on view screen but able to record and play by connecting to TV

I have the same problem: Technical Service says flexible tape between LCD and camera could be open in some lines. The solution is to change that tape.

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen

the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

Lost LCD Screen

You MAY just have a dirty playback head. Purchase a head cleaning tape (Bestbuy, Target, etc., for about $20) and try cleaning your playback head. Colored lines is ONE symptom of a dirty head. A blue screen is ANOTHER. I had that symptom yesterday (9/7/07), got a cleaning tape and solved the problem. I can now again see on the LCD display what I recorded on the tape. Good luck.
