Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR200 Camcorder
Camera working fine one day and next day the screen is very dim with no color. At first I couldn't even tell is was working at all. I moved the screen around some and it brightened with color to normal appearance. Then it wen dim again. Then the camera turned itself off. I turned it on and it had the same dim screen. I move it and it brightened. I used the camera for a few minutes and it became dim again and the camera turned itself off again. After this, every time I tried to turn it on, it turned itself off within a few seconds. Purchased camera May of 2007. Not a big video user, so only limited number of hours of working time in the past 2 years. Sony wants $271 to repair the camera. This is 1/2 the price of a similar technology camera today! What's up with Sony products,? Are they no longer making reliable cameras?

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 usually be repaired by a qualified service technician.
