My had a year and start showing problems (LCD).
It's a internal flex wire connecting LCD with camcorder. Got from the repair shop did it by miself and it's like knew. you can take it to autorized center as well:D.It's a common problem as this cable is bend each time when we open the LCD screen, so the cable become faulty.
Good luck

When I switch my SONY DCR-SR42 camcorder on, there is only blurred lines on the screen, no video frames were shown as it normally did. What could be the problem and fix? Thanks



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.
