    My LCD is completely black, just doesn't turn on. I'm still able to operate the menu by guessing their position on the screen but can't really do much as I'm noty able to see anything on the screen or on the viewfinder. When the LCD is fixed with the camera facing outward, I'm able to see the menu finctions on the viewfinder, the "touch" sense of the LCD is fine, I just am not able to see anything on the screen itself.

Seems like the cable is damaged. You should get it fixed by SONY.

Hi, Just replaced the battery and the memory card and still have a screen full of lines - get slight audio but no video. Is it ready for the trash or can it be fixed?


Unfortunately, most likely. Sounds like either the screen, or the actual sensor is dead. If when playing back the recordings on to your TV or computer you discover that they're still blank, then your camera is dead.

LCD screen working only if turn counterclockwise


make sure you open the lens 90 degrees to the camcorder.normal operation of the cam will allow you to rotate the lcd to a maximum of 180 degrees and can eve close it with the lcd screen side facing out. you can try pressing the reset button.if it still won't work try removing the battery and unplugging it from the ac adaptor for at least a minute.if still doesn't work properly,issue could be with a bad ribbon inside the lcd that loses contact when you turn it clockwise.that of course would need replacement or repair.

HANDY CAM LCD SCREEN BLANK


Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.
