Since this problem does not transfer to the footage it means that it is limited to the LCD screen only. you can by the inner screen onl(without the cover) and have it installed for you or install it yourself if you are technically oriented.The Sony part number for the inner screen is:
most likely a hardware or a loose connection problem. Unless your willing to buy a service manual from somewhere and haveing a look inside - possibly replaceing parts. I'd reacommend you contact your dealer for details on a repair man.
iam very sorry that you have this problem.When an LCD screen of DSRPD170P stops working it means that you have to get a replacement LCD screen. The replacement requires a qualified technical person. if you have such a person , then here are the details for ordering the LCD screen parts:
A-7078-956-A PD-217 board complete.
1-517-931-21 Tube fluorescent cold cathode.
Please note that the viewfinder of the DSR PD170 camera is always manufactured and supplied as black and white (not colour) so this is not a fault!
dear first tell me when u close the lcd pannel , then is the view finder working fine , if not then view finder cable is broken . u cant fix it your self as u need to open the camcorder .you must not be having the proper tools for that. and regarding the lcd part , if the display is fine for a while ..and then while using it it goes fade , shows grey colour or lines in it . then its lcd problem ...ur lcd need to be replaced .

Theproblem that you are experiencing with your Sony PD170 sounds that its just normal settings u just press the button on your handle where the red light blinks when we are recodring, when you will press that button the option would blink in your lcd screen ,then turn that off .and then CP i.e, coustom preset option would disappers from the lcd.
dear, you can restart the camera , by pressing the side button in the side of lcd pannel by a pin or some sharp thing , it will eject the tape after some time whne u press the eject button . dnt play hard with it
C:31:40 code shows problem with Drum (video Head) Rotation. Please use another tape as tape got stuck with drum in threading / loading. If problem still remain, Drum circuit needs to be checked by qualified tech.
