SOURCE: my sony handycam dcr-sr32 wont charge got new

It could be a dodgy Charger, if it has a problem and not kicking out enough power, it will think that the battery has power equal to that of the charger, i.e. fully charged altho' it isnt, and cut off, making it appear to all be working. If its a mini USB type charger you could try a different one from something else they are all 5v, but some draw more current (mA).

Hello Gary, sadly lots get the LCD screen go wobbly on the camera types you have, Sony did do a recall on the problem, did you register yours? if so you could have mislaid it.
I had to send my Sony for repair as it went same as you camera has.
