Re: Broken LCD?

The Wiz named, "The Machine," is quite right, I don't believe you'd get a better price for a repair part from Panasonic than $119 like what appears on the 'Buy it Now' price on e-bay for the item at the following URL:

It states that it was a 'display model' and has some scratches, but is in perfect working order.

Re: Broken LCD?

Ebay would be your best destination for the part.

As for dissasembly, I'm not sure how your camera looks exactly but there probably screws around the screen that are covered by rubber bumpers or plastic covers. Once the screws are out the the bezel should snap off, sometimes tricky as it seems that it will break but just pull it apart with your fingers or a flat plastic tool. The screen is probably screws into the back so undo those, then there should be a ribbon cable in its side or back. Reverse the process to put the new one in and that's it.

I've done it dozens of times on notebook computers but never on a camcorder but I suspect it should be similar. The hardest part would be to find a replacement LCD. Good Luck!

Sony DCR-SR200 digital Camcorder LCD is so dim I can hardly make it out. is this a user fixable problem?

No, it's most likely a broken flex LCD cable. It goes through the hinge and brakes very often. You should contact SONY and see if they would repair this for free (if you're out of warranty) as it's a factory problem.

I work for Sony.

DCR-SR32 screen problems

I got DCR-SR32 and I had first problems with colours then screen was moving down at last LCD stoped working. You are not wrong this wire is broken. I got till under the panel LCD I changed it and it's like new. Repair shop wanted for repair 150Pounds I did by myself for 50. The wire you can buy in the service or repair shop how you prefer number on the wire is written, mine was 1-871-457-11 sold as 1-871-457-21. you have to check your it might be the same. To change it it's not very easy but it's possible if the woman like me did it:D.

Lcd buttons wont work

I believe this is a main board problem. IF you still have a warranty you should send the camera back to sony. You dont believe you can turn the lcd buttons off. You can turn off the button clicks so it doesnt make any noise but you cannot turn off the buttons on the lcd.
