    Same problem here, the red tone is almost gone from the lcd screen. I've had the camera for nearly three years now and I first thought the screen has simply degenerated so slowly that I noticed the problem only now. Another thought that occurred to me is that, in the last few months, I've used the screen quite a lot in the "turned" position in which it probably heats more than it does in its normal "open" position. Could that kind of exposure to heat damage the screen? (The manual only warns about direct sunlight.) If anyone knows whether this is a problem that could actually be fixed, I'd be more than happy to know.

My LCD screen on DCR HC 42 is not displaying any image


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
