Question about Sony HVR-A1U Camcorder

1 Answer

I have a sony HVR A1U HDV and the LCD has stopped functioning. It's a touch screen LCD. I had it check by some trained technician who informed me that the problem was with the connecting strip/cable from the electronic board of the camera to the LCD which is carbon coated and it's this little flat thing thats finished. I don't know where to get a replacement for it. Please can anyone help me as to where I can get this? Much appreciated!

I have experienced the same problem, which may well have the same cause. A local electronics shop told me parts for Sony are only available direct from Sony - so I guess you and I will have to contact a Sony dealer

Have been using our Sony HVR-A1U for 2 years, used it maybe 10 times in 2 years. The LCD screen buttons suddenly stopped working!! Just before a video shoot! Really really dissapointing! Can anyone help us...


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body 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.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

The heads are dirty and you are getting sufficient digital dropout to cause the blue screen. Try a cleaning tape. If that fails to correct hte problem, then the alignment needs to be checked by an authorized service center.
