Re: black screen

The LCD screen on my Sony gradually lost the image. It is caused by the flexi/ribbon cable that runs from the camera body to the inside of the LCD screen breaking down. The copper tracks have broken. They may sometimes touch to give you a connection , but it will get worse. A replacement flexi is the only answer.
For my DCR-IP1E it cost me £31 (thats uk money....not dollars)
Sony Part Number A-7111-611-A (FP733 Mount) Taking the old one out was slightly tricky, putting the new one in is very tricky! I work in electronics, so I could achieve it but if you are not happy with electronic stuff, find someone who is.Straight forward for a repair shop expert. Tools needed? Just a small cross head screwdriver. Keep all bits with a note as you go along. Good luck.

My handycam screen is blank and doesn't show anything

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if there is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCD when attempting to record.
* Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the viewfinder or LCD status after completing each step.
* It may be necessary to refer to the operating instructions provided with the camcorder for information on how to perform a task on your specific model.
1. Ensure the lens cap on the front of the camcorder has been removed.
2. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted in the camcorder.
3. Ensure the STANDBY/LOCK switch is set to the STANDBY position.
4. Turn on the camcorder and set it to the CAMERA mode.
5. Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD.
IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD. To conserve power, the viewfinder and LCD will not display at the same time. To use the viewfinder, the LCD must be closed.
6. If the issue is not resolved, reset the camcorder to factory specifications.
NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing the troubleshooting steps, service may be required .

Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.

Black lcd screeen on my sony handycam

first check the iris of the camera if it is opening,you will see this when you look inside the lens of the camera when you turn on and off the switch at camera mode if the iris is opening....if the iris is ok the second problem may occurs of your camera is the ccd image sensor....go to a sony service center for replacing that...i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is the recall product not only on sony but in other brand because the manufacturer of their sensor is only one company....
