My vidoe camera does not show anything when I am recording

If you meant that there is no display of the picture while recording then it is possible that the LCD is faulty. Often this is related to the failure of the FLEXIBLE LINKING CORD which connects the circuit to the lcd panel.
You will need to remove the LCD panel to check the cord which normally breaks off at the folding hinges.
Get this job done by experts if you are not equipped.

Hi, no display in camera mode but displays works when playing the tape back,thanks Andy

In your statement since the LCD is moving there's miniature wire or ribbon wire attached to the folded LCD display. From thousand times you folded the display, the tendency of that ribbon wire will be crack, so mini switch that enable or trigger the transfer mode will not respond. So better replace it with a new ribbons wires. or call service personnel to replace it for you.

LCD Screen doesn't work when it is clicked in (screen facing up) it only shows up on the eyehole. I tried hitting the Display button so many times yet it doesn't work.

A Camera Labs review of this camera, November 2008, states, "If the screen is folded back on itself, the DISP button only switches between the two EVF modes." (EVF = Electronic View Finder.) i.e. it is not affecting the screen at all.
On my Canon 60D with a similar folding screen the same appears to be the case but, if I fold back the screen while it is functioning it works OK.
Also, I noticed that pressing several other buttons on the back of the camera effects changes to the screen. Might be worth trying these on your camera.

Viewer turns off (black) when folded back against the camera.

When the big LCD is black the view finder will turn on, right?

My Sony DSC H-2 camera LCD display

Does the finder LCD work ? Push the button directly to the right of the eyepiece to toggle between the large panel LCD and the finder and PLAY a recorded pic. If it will display a recorded pic but not display a live pic, the shutter blades are stuck together. It'll have to go to repair - about a $105 repair.

DCR HC-42 LCD screen problem
Just look for the post by 'airshod'. He has even put up a couple of links to pdf files with photos of the whole procedure. I used them and got mine fixed. Exactly the same problem as yours.
Be careful, though: Jackstar's (aka airshod) instructions leave this out, which you will discover after putting the whole camera back together (which is a pain): the ViewFinder (VF) will go dead, plus the picture in the LCD will not reverse when you reverse the LCD panel (which means that when you flip the panel to watch yourself while you video yourself, the picture will be upside-down, although you don't need to worry about it being recorded properly, of course. It's just a pain to aim the correctly when it's not showing the right way up!). Airshod had the same happen to him.
If you need further info on the VF dying after re-assembly, look at this link:

Unfortunately I won't have time to try the suggestion for a while, so I won't be of much help. I guess a camera is more useful with a broken VF and a working LCD panel, than the other way around.
Sony really ought to have addressed this issue by now. It's not reasonable to expect the camera to loose its LCD after only a year or two!

Cant take any pictures

the Shutter or some assicated components is shattered. This may be a repair situation at Nikon- but if you have had the camera for some time I suspect you will be buying another camera.
