Sony handycam camcorder lcd screen white and no displays

I have a Sony Handycam Video8 camcorder model CCD-TRV112. The LCD screen is only showing white when in camera and player mode and does not show any date, time, counter, etc. displays. The picture comes through the eye piece. What are the likely causes of this?

For the "all white screen" in daylight problem, check to make sure the "Nightshot Plus" slider switch is set on "off."

The "Night Shot Plus" slider on the top of the camcorder (Sony Handycam DCR-SR35) has proably been switched to on. Slide it back to the off position.

A shop wanted £100 to fix this problem! Good job I decied to check this site.

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.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 won't display picture.

This sounds like the LCD and CCT in the Lens is dead, not a cheap repair if this is the case, pop it to a camera shop like Jessops.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD TRV211.

If you are asking about CCD-TRV211 camcorder?
CCD-TRV211 is analog Video-8 camcorder so its movie data is not digital and can not be connected directly with computer via USB port.
Best and easiest was is to connect camera with DVD Recorder and burn DVD, this will convert analog movie file into digital data and you can copy it to hard disk of computer.

No picture displayed on lcd (blank)

Does your camera playback old recordings fine? and just can't show live view to record?
If yes, then camera has problem of bad ccd imager and this part will be replaced.
Sony announced free of cost repair scheme for subject problem. DCR-HC20E is PAL system camera so Sony Support UK can be visited for free of cost repair details as your camera model is listed there.
If you live in different country, let me know to guide you further.
Thank you.

If the display is defective we can supply it from Sony.
Check whether you can play the recorded images by connecting it to a PC.
