Re: Viewfinder broken

Is the viewfinder set to auto?

Auto turns it on or off when the LCD is flipped out to save energy. Look through your menus for this setting. If there's some problem the camera is having recognizing when the LCD is flipped out or not, this would solve not being able to use the eyepiece.

No display in viewfinder and LCD

i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.

You should go into the menu, camera settings and set the evf to on. EVF stands for electronic view finder. This can be set to be on when the lcd is open or closed. CAreful, if the evf is set to on and you point the viewfinder towards the sun, it will burn white marks into the viewfinder and ruin it.

No image on viewfinder

There is a short in the wiring were the hinge is at. You can take into a camera store or Best Buy and see what it would cost to replace the wiring in there.
