Question about Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 Camcorder

2 Answers


My SANYO Xacti VPC-E1 camcorder has a "split screen" problem. It happens when I turn on the camera and the image appears wobbling. I have tried to fix the problem by switching the camera on and off for several times, and sometimes the problem has gone away. But when I stop using the camera for a long time, the problem appears again. So, is this a multifunction or just a simple set up problem?

You can buy a new LCD and flex cable for $78 at the place Sanyo recomended to me. It takes a week for them to order it and a week to ship out. Call 1-800-421-5080 and give them part # 6450930331.

Mine has the same problem. I took it apart and by pressing on the flex cable my picture was restored. As soon as I let go the screen would go. Trying to decide between replacing the part or the camera.

When I turn the unit on, there isn't an image on the monitor. You can press the camera button and the flash goes off. There just isn't an image in the monitor. Please help!

If it takes a picture successfully, then your display is bad - more likely the back light inverter. Check your memory card and use a computer that can read it.

Sanyo xacti digital camcorder screen not working when opened out

It's most likely a damaged LCD cable which goes through the hinge - happens to many camcorders. You will have to contact your local Sanyo service center. I replace these cables for Sony camcorders every day.

Sorry for the bad news, but hope this helps.
