Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I bought Sony DCR-HC42 camcorder 4 years ago. From last month LCD screen display is not working.
Well if i'm not mistaking it could be the LCD board connection at the screen . but the replacement + labor will go from 120 to 170,
have you tried to open the screen, really slowly and see if it shows any life !.
you can try to get an stimate at sony, and see how mush it will cost you repair the machine.
there is not easy way to fix it, the screws are small and they can be lost really easy.sorry

Tips for a great answer:
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.
