Question about Samsung Compact MiniDV Digital Camcorder
The LCD display only shows vertical lines when the camera is on. I can see through the viewfinder and when camera is connected to my tv I see the display on the tv, but not on the lcd display. Can this be fixed?
The Lcd cable/ribbon has cracked or broken. if you are going to have a go at repairing i have compiled some instructions that have helped others to do home repair...stefan

Manufactured Oct 05, my Mini DV Camcorder SC D353 LCD screen went white with vertical colored lines when opened more than 1/4 of the way. I'm sure there had been less than 10 hours on it, so this is not a wear and tear issue. It's a component ill suited for the stress of a pivoting LCD screen.
After my internet research I've determined that the problem is a broken flexible lcd ribbon that cracks around the hinge / pivot joint.
After writing to Samsung USA and Samsung Canada, and getting the run around from them and service centers reparis and shipping exceeding the value of the camera and technicians telling me its not worth repairing, part prices ranging from $50 - $150, Samsung's finally referred me to the place, http://www.globalsemi.com/ .
I entered part number AD97-06489 and to my surprise found the part listed for $4.51, Canadian and located in Mississauga, just west of Toronto.
It is also found it here

So I'm going to pick up the part tomorrow and I'm going to try and do it myself. I think $4.51 is worth a try. Pray for me :) Cheers
PS Can anyone direct to the service manual?
