Re: sony pc 101 camcorder

Weird.. same with mine! Seems perfectly fine with exception to this problem. No obvious damage, camera still functions as expected, but yes, not responsive to touch. Could it be a date issues (2008.. lead year ?).

DCR-HC32 NTSC the touch screen that controls the playback suddenly stopped!

I've had this problem with my HC32 touch screen for a year and a half.
The fix was to buy a new camcorder which is working out great -- but every 6 months or so I have to get this one back out to use as my analog to digital video pass thru device.

To get the touch screen to work:
- I put it in the charger dock and turn it on AND LEAVE IT ON so the screen is displaying something (anything).
- within 12 to 24 to 36 hours it starts to work on it's own. At first it will only let you make a single menu choice and lock up again but a few hours later it will be perfectly normal for at least a few days (maybe forever if you use it regularly).

I've done this three or four times now and it has worked each time. It seems that after it sits a few months and the battery discharges the problem occurs.

The touch screen has stoped responding to touch what is the most likely reason, it did this a couple days ago and i calibrated it and that helped for awhile but now nothing works

I have the same problem. Without the LCD working, I cannot retrieve the data from HDD to my computer. I believe that it is a serious design flaw. Fixing the camcoder will cost $300, not really worthy. Does any idea how to retrieve data even Touch screen does not function?

Touch Screen on Sony DCR-HC32 Camcorder Does Not Work

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
