Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
LCD screen stopped working all of a sudden on my DCR HC 42 E handycam, even though I can see video through viewfinder..please advise
I have the same problem - LCD is black for playback and recording, but touch screen buttons respond (just you can't see them) if you guess where they are. Viewfinder is fine for recording and playback.. Have contacted Sony UK via email (awaiting repsonse) and also spoke to them. The problem with the CCD where Sony are fixing (until Sept 08) for free is slightly different to this, and the girl I spoke to said that the DCR-HC42E is not a camera on their list for the free repairs as it is not a recognised fault with the camera. Only option I have been given is to send to their service centre at a cost of £175. Am going to complain further and will post updates. Suggest that anyone with this problem contacts Sony - http://support.sony-europe.com/contacts/contacts.aspx?l=en&tp=cic
