Sounds like you need to have the hinge assy replaced. This should probably be done by an experienced technician. Amazon is still selling this camcorder for $585 so it is probably worth repairing...unless there is another camcorder with more bells and whistles that you have been wanting, then I would recommend putting that money towards a new one.

Hope this has helped.

Where can i get a lcd screen for my dcr-pc55e at a good price


Generally it's difficult to replace built in LCDs like this. I would suggest contact Sony to see if they have any spare, or will work on it for you.

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.

Cant get my sony handycam dcr-pc55e tape on my pc .


Hi, I was wondering if you are using the AC Adaptor while downloading video? When you are not operating the camera, it will shut off automatically after approximately 5 minutes. This is to save the battery. It can be changed in the Standard Set menu: The item is called A.Shut Off. This can be changed to Never. Otherwise, I would use the AC cable if you aren't already.

I also have a dcr-pc55e and i think i might have the same prob , have you tried a firewire card and cable you will have to buy one if your pc has not got one you can get them off of ebay for a few pounds , i have just bought one because i had the same prob , but now the pc will see the video camera and start to take the images from my camera but then it just stops halfway into the tape . If you can get it to go any futher than i can after this please let me know , i have posted my prob on here to , thanks jimmer . You could try give sony a call on 0870 5111 999 or you could give the handycam helpline a call i think they are called pixella on 00800 15 32 48 65 to see if they can help i hope this helps you . jimmer

hi no need to disassemble the device all you need is long thin tweezers take the battry out look inside the socket (with light) and find the silver\gold connection battry tabs with the tweezers elevate the tabs for better connection on the lid is a spring like (push the battry in place) elevate it too if this wont work buy a new battry before taking apart the device good luck
