The lcd screen on my hdr cx-150 is not working but can still record and take pics, how do i fix it?

does the view finder work ?
if yes, there must be the flat ribbon cable that may have been moved and disconnected, but if the view finder doesn't work too, there must be a board inside or a connector that has been moved (connectors a sometimes sensible to chocks, an in between the boards there are connectors too...) the LCD controler-processor board for exemple.

No image through view finder or lcd monitor

try removeing the battery and then trying again,

The device might need a reset

but it sounds like a hardware side problem witch would need to get repaired.

if you still have warranty then that should save you.
if you dont have warranty id recommend you contact your dealer, or a local professional, there is a repair service finder in the front page of fixya under the top experts.

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help

Sony DCR-HC18E, the backlight on the LCD screen will not light up, it does record but you can't see what you are recording and can hardly see the on screen function / menus. Pressing the backlit buttons...

If you close lcd screen in its position, do you see image in eye piece (view finder) ?
If yes, then replace flexible ribbon connecting wire between camera board and lcd board to get picture in lcd screen.
Let me know if you need part number of flexible ribbon wire.

Dvx100a showing black screens on lcd screen and view finder

You probably have the lens cap on, the iris dial closed, or you are in vcr mode rather than camera mode. You may also have the nd filter set to 1/64th, this is only for bright sunlight. When shooting indoors with low light, set the nd filter to off and hit the iris button until iris manual appears on the lcd, then dial the iris dial in front of the iris button up or down to bring the iris to around 5.6 f stop.

My lcd and view finder are unable to show subject

The problem you are having is called a "stuck iris" Inside the lens are two thin plastic sheets that slide over one another that limit the amount of light that comes into the lens. In some Sony camcorders, the motor or "actuator" that drives the iris, or moves the two sheets which are the iris opened and closed. The actuators sometimes leak oil onto the plastic sheets causing them to stick, so the light coming into the lens is stuck at one level. Some technicians will recommend lens replacement (expensive) but many times the iris assembly can be removed from the lens and cleaned. Try to find a service shop that will clean the iris rather than replacing the lens.

Camera mode recording/displaying right

what is the model number? if it's 10 years or older you are most likely dealing with bad surface mounted capacitors.

The LCd connecting Flexible strip might be faulty. If you can view the picture in dark way,then the back light can be the faluty part. If they are all OK, then replace the LCD. The connecting strip is failing fast as per our experience and this costs US$ 21.00 and it is available with us.
