Yes, there is a flat cable that connect the display to the camera and after some time it brakes. If you replace the cable you will solve the problem. Be carefully it is not an easy job to do.

I have the same problem and it goes away when i completely flip the display. It looks like the inside ribbon cable need to be replaced.

Good luck

My lcd won't display a picture. it is white with colored lines going across it. If i flip the screen it used to show the picture, but now will just show a blank screen. I'm thinking there is something...

the connector between the LCD and internal parts of the camcorder is called RIBBON. based on what you said, you need to call Samsung hotline for repair of your camcorder

Not able to view anything on screen

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

LCD Screen

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.

Samsung MiniDV Digital Camcorder model SC-D353

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, .

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.

It is also found it here

A picture here

So I'm going to pick up the part tomorrow and I'm going to try and do it myself. I think $4.51 is worth a try. Pray for me :) Cheers

PS Can anyone direct to the service manual?
