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).

DCR-SR32 screen problems

I got DCR-SR32 and I had first problems with colours then screen was moving down at last LCD stoped working. You are not wrong this wire is broken. I got till under the panel LCD I changed it and it's like new. Repair shop wanted for repair 150Pounds I did by myself for 50. The wire you can buy in the service or repair shop how you prefer number on the wire is written, mine was 1-871-457-11 sold as 1-871-457-21. you have to check your it might be the same. To change it it's not very easy but it's possible if the woman like me did it:D.
