Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD200E DVD Camcorder
I purchased a Sony Handycam DCR-SX40 a couple of days ago but have decided that I don't want to keep it and will return it. I've deleted the videos I shot from the internal memory, but I want to make sure that I've permanently deleted and that no one will be able to bring it back up once I return the camera. Is there some other place than just deleting it through the prompts on the screen that I should go to to make sure it's deleted (you know how even once you delete something on a computer it still goes to the recycle bin and then you have to delete it from there too)?
In this case, I suggest that you format the Internal Memory of the Camcorder using the Camcorder as follows:
Touch HOME -> Manage Media -> Media Format -> touch the recording Media to be formatted[INT. MEMORY] or [Memory Stick] -> YES -> YES -> OK.
Formatting the Internal Memory or Memory Stick will delete all the data saved in the Internal Memory or in the Memory Stick.
You may also refer the page # 36 in the Manual of the Camcorder for more information about this.
Please download the manual (Operating Guide) of the Camcorder from this link:

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 be repaired by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. 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.
