I have a Samsung SC-D353 miniDV Digital Camcorder. It records videos and captures still pics just fine, but my lcd screen no longer shows what is being captured. It only shows a white screen. Everything worked fine until a couple of months ago. Will you help me please?

hi .probably the lcd screen cable is cracked..it will break shortly and the screen will be white or vertical line.. the cable that runs through the hinge on the screen needs to be replaced..this does seem to be a common fault with the rotating screens.. info on solutions if you attempt to do home repair...stefan
I work on this model of samsung the lcd problem is a common thing with this camera
The ribbon cable to the lcd from the camera cracks and causes what you are talking about .
Normally the camera will still work buy using the eye viewfinder for recording and playback but you will not hear the sound unless the lcd door is open but then the picture in the viewfinder goes away when this door is open and comes back when it is closed
my email is email@example.com and sell on ebay as uromastyx
Replace the Ribbon Wire between the Mini DV unit and the lcd screen. Samsung wanted $136 to repair same issue for me. Screen started with colored lines eventually going to white lines and finally screen went completely black and stayed black. I replaced the Ribbon Wire after purchasing a copy of the systems schematics and repair manuel online. With total cost of everything i bought to make this repair I saved a little over $115 from what Samsung wanted for the same repair.
Manufactured Oct 05, my Mini DV Camcorder SC D353 LCD screen went white with vertical colored lines when opened more than 1/4 of the way. I'm sure there had been less than 10 hours on it, so this is not a wear and tear issue. It's a component ill suited for the stress of a pivoting LCD screen.
After my internet research I've determined that the problem is a broken flexible lcd ribbon that cracks around the hinge / pivot joint.
After writing to Samsung USA and Samsung Canada, and getting the run around from them and service centers reparis and shipping exceeding the value of the camera and technicians telling me its not worth repairing, part prices ranging from $50 - $150, Samsung's finally referred me to the place, http://www.globalsemi.com/ .
I entered part number AD97-06489 and to my surprise found the part listed for $4.51, Canadian and located in Mississauga, just west of Toronto.
