LCD display sometimes dont work and touch screen never works anymore. When I open the display panel sometimes it comes on and sometimes is does not. The touch screen stopped working. Sony is looking to charge abuot $215.00USD to get fixed. Does anyone know where I can get the cable that is needed to get this fixed. I work on electronics and feel I can do this myself - that is unless its cheaper and faster from any reccomendations you can make ? Thanks Bobby

It is a flex cable that is bad you can oder the part or get fixed
I think it is important to contact Sony at 1-866-703-7669
sometimes they reduce the cost if you know that they have problems with the CCD (which they do) so does jvc and others.

My touch is'nt work and hardreset is'nt working!


hi,

Does your unit still works even without using touchscreen?

Since you already do hard reset and still it does'nt work. then chances are you have a defective touch screen, probably it is cause by an impact of any kind and produce a crack inside or if your luck, the touch screen flex get loose inside.

here is what you can do if your phone does'nt have any warranty anymore cause opening your phone can forfeit your warrany.

Open tour phone slowly and secure the screw to a safe place and also remember where and how to place the parts you remove. Be extra carefull for the LCD. the touch screen is just above the LCD. Some manufacturers include the touch screen to the LCD and some are separate. You can check visually is there is cracks on the touch screen and also check its flex connector if it is ok.

You can purchase touchscreen, LCD or Both at ebay. be sure that the right model is what you order.

Hope I helped you in some other way.
Don't forget to rate me, Thanks...

When I flip out the LCD Display on my DCR DVD403 the screen just stays white. But if i touch where the touch buttons are they work, i just can't see anything.


The touch screen portion of your lcd panel is working correctly but the panel isnt. The panel needs to be replaced and 9 times out of ten the cable does as well. I hope this helps.

The lcd screen cracked and won't show display but touch screen still works and you can turn off and on.


The LCD panel and Touch screen panel were both have separate circuit connection. the covering panel of the LCD is the touch screen the inner is the LCD, replacing an LCD is quite just bit easy all you need a replacement LCD, you can purchased it online or via ebay. and you'll also need a dismantling guide and a very cheap opening tools.

No LCD display at all on my Toshiba Dp80f fax


Once your open up the machine (like how u change toner kit),u will see a connector connected the LCD display to the base machine. Makesure the connector is firmly plugged.

Cracked touchscreen


There is no need to replace the whloe lcdscreen, you just need to replace the touch screen & panel which is a thin glasstop on the top of the lcdscreen. The whole lcdscreen is expensive, while a touch panel is much cheaper than that. And we could provide all kinds of PDA accessories. Here are some information for you In general, PDA LCD screen comprises the touch screen. LCD screen acts as a display of PDA or SmartPhone, and the likes, which cannot go without LCD screen. Touch screen is short for touch screen digitizer which seizes the upper part of PDA LCD screen. It is pressure-tactile, runs with gentle touch of stylus, finger and other tele-pointing function-possessed device. Different from LCD screen, the touch screen is an optional component for PDA, SmartPhone, and the likes. A PDA can function well even without the assembling of a touch screen for the availability of keyboard.
