SOURCE: HDR-HC1 power keeps cycling

I had this exact problem, and the cycling would stop after about 30 sec. and then function properly. I believe a circuit was confused, mainly because I used an older battery and let it run out till the batt was dead - accidently - and when I put in a fresh batt, it no longer cycled and works perfectly to this day.

Now if I can get my computer to recognize the camera via firewire, I'd be golden.

The LCD screen may be turned OFF. To turn the LCD backlight off or on, press and hold the DISPLAY/BATT INFO button for a few seconds. After the backlight has turned off or on, release the button.

SOURCE: LCD on Sony HDR HC1 not working

This happens when flexible wire between LCD board and camcorder board got broken or cracked.
Camcorder needs that connecting flexible wire replacement, let me know exact model of Sony camcorder if you need part number of flexible wire.
Thanks.

HDR-HC1 flashes when recording outside only but not when recording inside. the LCD screen blinks light & dark. thanks john


This is a fault in the electronic aperture control and will probably cost you $800 if you have it repaired by Sony. However, There are many qualified independent repair shops that will do the repair at a discounted price.

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 it repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Lcd screen only works when flipped over and against the camera


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body 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.

Touch panel menu unaccessible


Me too! The camera was working perfectly until yesterday and when I turned it on today, it selectively ignores some buttons on the screen - and pressing the "Menu" gives me nothing. I've tried to reset it through that pin hole button, but it just resets the machine back to its default.
