It should be the first screen you see when you turn it on, if it has not been set. This is an old camera, so the internal rechargeable battery that saves this info may be dead.
here is the manual in pdf if you don't already have it.

Hello Laura. You cannot transfer video from this camcorder with a USB cable. You will need a DV cable. This cable did not come with your camcorder. You will also need software for the transfer process. Windows Movie Maker can do this although I've never used it. I used a product called Scenalyzer. There is a free demo version at www.scenealyzer.com, but it will leave a watermark on your video if you don't pay for it. You might try Windows Movie Maker first if you already have it.

Once you have captured the video on your computer, you cannot just burn it to a DVD as a file if you want to play it in DVD players. This too requires special software.

I'm travelling for work right now, but when I get home in a few days I can be of more help. If you want to keep going on this, get a DV cable and see if you can capture the video with Windows Movie Maker and let me know.

SOURCE: my sony handycam dcr-hc26 door won't close

Hi,
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.
Thanks.

Dcr hc26 lcd screen touch is not working


This is usually caused by a defective LCD module or a defective flex cable that connects the LCD to the camera. I recommend replacing them both at the same time. The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony at an reasonable price for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them in stock as well as an aftermarket supplier with hundreds of them.


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 it repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My sony handycam dcr -hc26 touchcreen does not work.but the in and out zoom button and record button work to the left of the touch screen .can this still be a defective flexiable ribbon cable?


This can be by a faulty LCD flex cable or a faulty LCD module and can be repaired inexpensively. The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them as well as an aftermarket supplier.

My sony handycam DCR-HC26 is frozen on "clock


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body or the LCD module itself and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My sony DCR-HC26 TOUCH SCREEN NOT WORKING


it's not exactly the same, but this website shows a pretty foolproof way on how to fix it on a different camera.

http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=33427&forum=32&start=10&select_page_number=2

i fixed the touchscreen on my hc26 with it on the first try. i put a piece of paper folded a couple times under the ribbon cable connections where it meets the screen (against the plastic frame for the screen, under the blue cable), and put a piece of cardboard against the circuit board to give it more pressure from that side. works like a charm!
