Question about RCA Video Cameras
This camcorder was working (after not being used for two years), but I turned it off to use the next day and the image in the viewfinder became distorted then went blank. Turned it off and tried again later that day - same result. Now the display won't even come on - which means the CCD Board, or the ribbon cable to Mother Board, Or.... is bad/not making a good connection? Very hard to find any information from RCA/Thomson Consumer Electronics concerning this issue. I do have the Service/Repair manual, but can't find any repair center to do the work. Most centers just say throw it away and buy a newer Camcorder. I don't like that option

I had this happen to one of my Panasonic cameras, fortunately i had another camera i used for the capture process.
BUT get a magnifying glass and look at the camera firewire socket. Most firewire connect problems comes from a
"bent pin" in that socket. Otherwise it is off to the repair guy I am afraid.

If you have X P you install a firewire in your p.c.hook up camera switch to play then open moviemaker the p.c.will recognise the camera moviemaker is better than j.v.c. software.

The LCD cable is faulty. You need to replace the LCD cable from SONY authorised service center.
It's a common problem as this cable is bend each time when we open the LCD screen, so the cable become faulty.
