Open Question

My sony handycam is frozen on clock set but will

My sony handycam DCR-HC26 is frozen on "clock set". It will not allow me to set the clock. It's like the touch screen is frozen. Have tried to reset, took off battery, plugged directly to wall power, recharged battery to full. It will let you record but then not playback. It goes directly to clock set, but none of the touch screen buttons work. Even tried to re-calibrate but again when you touch the x on the screen it does nothing. Like the touch part of the screen does not work all of a sudden.

SOURCE: Touchscreen buttons not working

the flexwire is the problem of your camera, the touch screen connection is already cut..go to a service center for replacing or repairing the flexwire...is not easy for repairing that if you are not a technician that wiring is like a strand of hair that why is difficult to fix but in our shop we modified that and become more durable than the original...

SOURCE: XP does'nt recognise Handycam

Hello Laura. You cannot transfer video from this camcorder with a USB cable. You will need a DV cable. This cable did not come with your camcorder. You will also need software for the transfer process. Windows Movie Maker can do this although I've never used it. I used a product called Scenalyzer. There is a free demo version at www.scenealyzer.com, but it will leave a watermark on your video if you don't pay for it. You might try Windows Movie Maker first if you already have it.

Once you have captured the video on your computer, you cannot just burn it to a DVD as a file if you want to play it in DVD players. This too requires special software.

I'm travelling for work right now, but when I get home in a few days I can be of more help. If you want to keep going on this, get a DV cable and see if you can capture the video with Windows Movie Maker and let me know.

SOURCE: Touch Screen on Sony DCR-HC32 Camcorder Does Not Work

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Repair handycam touchscreen


It should be the first screen you see when you turn it on, if it has not been set. This is an old camera, so the internal rechargeable battery that saves this info may be dead.
here is the manual in pdf if you don't already have it.

My sony handycam DCR-HC26 is frozen on "clock


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body or the LCD module itself and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I have replaced a Windows XP PC with a new PC running Windows 7 Home Premium and I have not been able to connect my DCR-HC26 Sony Handycam digital tape camera to the new PC. I'm using an I-link (firewire)...


Mostly with these cameras you do not need driver (unless you use a USB cable) but like me you have firewire okay? so you should unplug your camera, turn your PC off for a min or two, plug camera in THEN yes THEN put your PC on, and the Win 7 will see your camera and loads setting it needs auto ok.
