Hi again,
E:61:11 shows that flexible wire of lens assembly is not inserted in camera main board connector properly.
There are two flexible wires from lens assembly in this camcorder, just check them and make sure both are plugged in main board connectors correctly.
This will solve your problem.

Hi Alisa,

You have broken fine flex cable between your screen and board/PCB causing your touch screen ****** to work. So first of all you need to replace the cable first with new one.

My sony handycam dcr-hc21 will not allow me to go into play mode. I can turn the power on and off, but I cannot rotate the power button up to make the camcorder go into play mode.

This does seem to be a broken switch that you use for play mode, I have one on my camera, it may be the tag broken off that hit the switch.
