Question about Sony HDR-HC1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The buttons on the touch panel do not work correctly. The manual poses calibration of the LCD screen as a solution, however, the menu button necessary to do that does not work. When pressed, it gives the volume setting instead. So calibration is not an option. The reset button does not reset the personal menu buttons, so that is also not an option.
I am a bit amazed that their is no program reset possibility on the HDR-HC1
I've got the same problem ... LCD touch screen didn't work, then the screen went dark -- it's the ribbon cable. If you invert the screen flush against the camcorder, you should still be able to access the touch-screen menus (at least mine still work that way) -- to film, you have to use the eyepiece. But, ultimately, the ribbon connection - which is noted for failure -- has to be replaced.

Me too! The camera was working perfectly until yesterday and when I turned it on today, it selectively ignores some buttons on the screen - and pressing the "Menu" gives me nothing. I've tried to reset it through that pin hole button, but it just resets the machine back to its default.
