How do I get the sony handycam dcr-hc30ntsc to show me a pictuer wale recording or any thing


If camcorder does not show live view in view finder and lcd screen but shows good picture in play back of old recorded tapes then ccd imager chip is defective in camcorder and need to be replaced.
It is not user level repair as soldering work is needed to replace ccd imager chip.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Touch screen will not work. Can control recording


Had the same problem. It's ainternal flex wire connecting LCD with camcorder. Got from the repair shop did it by miself and it's like knew.
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

Lcd screen is blurry on my sony handycam dcr-hc20


This does not sound like a CCD problem yet, but a LCD problem. This would require you to replace the LCD screen. Sounds like the LCD inverter is shot. That is the power supply that is required to back light your LCD.

Before we blame that, you should make sure that all ribbon cables are secure and tight.

Good luck !
