Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Unfortunately there is no fix for that. The blank screen problem is common on this model. You can try by changing the flex cable of the LCD screen, or worst, an IC that is associated with delivering power to the backlight (if your LCD may still touch sensitive).
The problem is usually due to the camcorder constantly expose in medium to high heat condition. The IC has blown therefore resulted on the issue. Avoid putting the camera/camcorder in the car under hot weather.
