Plays back on lcd screen upside down at times

When the viewport is completely flipped around so you can see it when you are looking at the lens, it automatically flips it upside down so it is right side up to the viewer. Make sure it is locked into the correct position to prevent this from happening.

Hope this helps

For the handycam DCR-PC101E, on turn on no picture can be seen on the view finder or the LCD screen. While recording audio is getting recorded but no video is getting recorded. The LCD screen stays black....

If you are qualified to open the Camcorder then you can follow what I am going to say. The most important thing is to have the right precision screwdrivers so that you can open the side of the camera that has the LCD screen. The problem with it most likely to be the socket that goes to the LCD screen inside the camcorder that is no longer connecting properly so that you have to put it back an seal it with some reinforcing tape. if you are not sure on how to do this please tell me so that I can send you instructions and the pictures to show you how it's done.

I got cryptic answer regarding the problem that the picture on the monitor on my camcroder GZ-HM400 is upside down.

There is a switch within the camera that controls the orientation of the LCD image. When the screen is flipped upside down, the switch is supposed to tell the camera to flip the image upside down as well. If this switch is damaged, the camcorder gets the wrong signal and the image will be displayed upside down. This can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

This is a feature not a bug...The LCD is designed to flip the picture when you rotate the screen. This is so that you can see what you filming or be in the picture and see yourself filmed. I can't remember if it flips automatically or not. But, I would first try inverting and reverting the LCD screen to see if you can get it to detect orientation, then check and see if there is a setting to manually set the orientation of the LCD instead under the menu options.

The image is flipped upside down and won't go back I think the camera might have been dropped


normally there is a micro switch fixed at the awivl head of the lcd panel. when the lcd is rotated to 180 the switch gets engaged thus turns the image upside down. iF IT IS PERMANENTLY UPSIDE DOWN yhen most probably the switch has worn out.and its not resetting.
You could try a few gentle taps to see if it releases the micro switch

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

I have a sony dcr-sr82 camcorder and the lcd upside down

It might be the flex wire connecting LCD with camcorder responsable. What happens when you turn the LCD on the other side?

Flex Cable replaced-but now VF is dead, plus...

Hi, I have just repaired my camera following the excellent series of pictures provided by airshod, and I think the viewfinder problem could arise from replacing the tiny board under the D panel covering the lcd panel hinge. This panel has a tiny switch activated by a little projection on the lcd/hinge moulding and on reassembly it is necessary for the panel to be open and at right angles to the body so that the projection is on the right side of the switch for correct operation. I assume that it is this switch which activates the changeover from lcd to VF. It could be that if the lcd panel were closed while asembling the D panel the switch could have been damaged while opening it later, but the board would be easy to replace - the supplier of the cable should be able to obtain a replacement. I'm not sure about the upside picture problem though, it may be related to this but without a service manuel it's hard to say! Good luck!

Images on LCD are upside down.

You have to go to settings and adjust from there...find LCD settings and that should do it.

DCR HC-42 LCD screen problem
Just look for the post by 'airshod'. He has even put up a couple of links to pdf files with photos of the whole procedure. I used them and got mine fixed. Exactly the same problem as yours.
Be careful, though: Jackstar's (aka airshod) instructions leave this out, which you will discover after putting the whole camera back together (which is a pain): the ViewFinder (VF) will go dead, plus the picture in the LCD will not reverse when you reverse the LCD panel (which means that when you flip the panel to watch yourself while you video yourself, the picture will be upside-down, although you don't need to worry about it being recorded properly, of course. It's just a pain to aim the correctly when it's not showing the right way up!). Airshod had the same happen to him.
If you need further info on the VF dying after re-assembly, look at this link:

Unfortunately I won't have time to try the suggestion for a while, so I won't be of much help. I guess a camera is more useful with a broken VF and a working LCD panel, than the other way around.
Sony really ought to have addressed this issue by now. It's not reasonable to expect the camera to loose its LCD after only a year or two!

flip switch is not working or stucked, a loose wire connected to this switch is also possible. you may open the unit and check for it. a pro fix is better.
