Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV720 Digital Camcorder
My TRV720 lcd screen is getting power however has vertical stripes. It appears that the connector ribbon on the board side is not making good contact. Suggestions? Sony offers flat-rate repair that is really high. Is there a source for a replacement lcd? The camera otherwise works perfectly and I hate to buy a new one since I have hundreds of hours of tape and many accessories...

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.

I've experienced the very same problem a couple of days ago. Can't believe my bad luck cause I'll be going on holiday in a couple of weeks. I've seen a technican this morning and he advised me to purchase two parts. They're the 186992511 PWB FP-412 Flexible and the A1174647A Mounted C.Board FP-372. I've keeping my fingers crossed and pray that he's right.
