Hi,
If it is Sony DCR-HC21 camcorder then it is touch screen problem and you need to replace LCD Screen as it has touch buttons pad.
LCD screen replacement is easy, 4 screws to take off LCD cabinet cover, 2 more screws inside to take out LCD screen, few connectors to unplug flexible ribbon wires.
Let me know if you want to replace LCD Screen by yourself to provide you part number info.
Thanks.

Garmin Nuvi 1300 touch screen not working


It sounds like you need your touchscreen replaced. The touchscreen is soldered to the LCD display, so the touchscreen must be unsoldered from the LCD display and a new touchscreen resoldered to the LCD display. Please do not attempt to do this yourself. You can easily damage the LCD display in the process. More information about touchscreen replacement can be found here:

The touch screen display does not work. It turns on but you cannot give the unit a command through the input panel.


Is the lcd screen completely blank? Or does is it just the touch functionality that is not working?

If the screen is blank, though the copier still turns on and appears to function (test it by printing to it,) then you most likely have a failed power inverter board. This board provides the current needed to operate the lcd screen and is a rather common failure. However, if it is just the touch feature that is not working though the screen lights up, then you most likely have a ripped ribbon cable that connects the lcd touch function to the main board on the lcd screen.

Keep my updated.

Touch screen is broken


It sounds like the LCD is broken. The Touch screen digitizer and the LCD are two seperate components, the LCD is the visual part that shows the display and the digitzer is the part that you touch. You can find these parts online and attempt the repair yourself or bring it to a mobile phone repair centre for a professional job.

Lost LCD Screen


You MAY just have a dirty playback head. Purchase a head cleaning tape (Bestbuy, Target, etc., for about $20) and try cleaning your playback head. Colored lines is ONE symptom of a dirty head. A blue screen is ANOTHER. I had that symptom yesterday (9/7/07), got a cleaning tape and solved the problem. I can now again see on the LCD display what I recorded on the tape. Good luck.

Sony TRV-19 Camcorder - Black screen in camera mode


Fixed it, at least temporarily I had the side off my trv250 examining it, especially the CCD connection. I had read the post about soldering a capacitor to pins 1 and 3 (from the left) on the bottom row. I didn't have the specific capacitor on hand, but I started touching some of the small ones I did have to those pins. I found that after I touched a 100uF, 10V cap to pins 1 and 3 the picture suddenly came back to life and stayed that way after removing the cap. I have no idea how long this will last, and I've set up the cam on a tripod in the livingroom with the LCD display facing me so I can monitor it. If you, like me, figure you have nothing else to lose, you might want to give this a try. Note: my camera was suffering from the green smeary horizontal lines problem, and wasn't completely black. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.
