Camcorder LCD Screen problem

I am able to view through the lens and shoot and the camera is in perfect working condition. Except one problem - when i open the LCD screen to about 20 degrees it's fine; but when i open it fully the screen shows up few grey lines and is blacked out and i am unable to view anything. What could be the possible problem, is there a solution to this? Any valuable response would be really appreciated.

 

Regards,

Arun.

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!

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

Screen black. Everything else works perfectly.


To my understanding that you do not see live view in camera mode to record and camcorder playback old recorded tapes correctly and you get picture in LCD.
If it is true then please check lens cover that need to be slide down to get live view in camera mode. If problem still exist then 2 possibilities, either aperture in lens mechanism is bad or ccd imager is defective.
In that problem, camcorder needs qualified tech to fix it.
Let me know any further query.

Everthing seems to work, except the camera will not record.


Assume you have Sony DCR-HC20 camcorder and it does not show you live view to record, I hope camcorder is playing back old recorded tapes perfectly with good quality picture on its LCD.
If it is true then your camcorder has ccd imager chip failure and ccd imager needs to be replace to get live view in LCD monitor.
Qualified camera tech will replace ccd imager chip.
Thanks.

Dvx100a showing black screens on lcd screen and view finder


You probably have the lens cap on, the iris dial closed, or you are in vcr mode rather than camera mode. You may also have the nd filter set to 1/64th, this is only for bright sunlight. When shooting indoors with low light, set the nd filter to off and hit the iris button until iris manual appears on the lcd, then dial the iris dial in front of the iris button up or down to bring the iris to around 5.6 f stop.

My Hitachi VM H710A plays just fine, and the picture looks fine. But when it playsback footage or records footage, five to ten seconds later, it stops abruptly, and flashes the word "TAPE". First thing I must add, is that I was using a prerecorded videotape, and was testing it from the beginning of the cassette and the middle of the cassette. I thought maybe the heads were dirty, and so I cleaned them using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. I cleaned the head drum with a piece of paper soaked with rubbing alcohol so that I wouldn't get any fibres in the heads. I waited for it to dry and then I put a cleaning cassette inside. To which, it still stopped abruptly five to ten seconds in during playback. I then decided to look at the manual of the camcorder and see the symptom. It says that due to temperature changes that it might cause this symptom. I placed it in a cool room and left it there all day and checked on it, and the camcorder is still doing the same thing as before hand. Then another cause said that it might sense some moisture. I made sure that the camcorder was dry externally and internally, and yet still, same problem. Thats when I decided to take it apart and look inside to see if there was anything odd inside the camcorder causing it to function the way it does. The belt seemed to be working fine, and there was no missing parts. The tracking poles and path alignment was fine, and not loose. Everything simply seemed just fine. So I am unsure as to why my camcorder is operating like this.
