Question about Sony HDR-HC1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I am one of the lead technicians at VideoOneRepair.com. We are a repair
shop that specializes in only Sony and Canon Prosumer camcorders.
The problem that you are experiencing with your Sony HVR-A1J camcorder is a common problem with this model camcorder. The ribbon cable that connects the LCD screen to the main part of the camcorder goes faulty and needs to be replaced. Sony also recommends that when this cable is replaced you must also replace a modified part to prevent this from happening again. The estimate to replace both of these parts is $360.19 parts and labor. This also includes cleaning and servicing.
We also offer a 6 month guarantee on the entire camcorder, not just what it was sent in for. The estimate and the return shipping are free even if you do not have the camcorder repaired. Please feel free to call, email or post any questions you have and I would be happy to respond.

I have two cameras: hvra1u and a hvra1n.
1u mechanism damaged in the conductor strip that commands the mechanism for tape transport and eject. the 1n lcd conductor strip doesnt work.lcd dead.
so, decided to create one working camera from these two non-working cameras. the result: one hvr a1n mechanism with an a1u lcd. these cameras are lcd compatible. and there is more: not only changed the lcd strip, no, that is too hard and difficult. i changed all the superior mask, the "half of the camera". this means thah all the lcd-side face is totally comptaible between these cameras.hope this information be usefull for those that have two cameras like me and dare to make this frankie-camera, but believe me, it really works. all the functions, all menus all modes working.
