Question about Sony HVR-Z1U Mini DV Camcorder
When I turned on the Z1U, the LCD shows no image but all the on screen info is working on a black background as if I left the lens shade shutter closed. ND filters are off. The Z1U has shot over 70 weddings without any problem. It was tipped over from the tripod 2 years ago and cracked the audio input housing. It was repaired and worked fine until now. Please help.
It's the flexible ribbon cable that feeds the LCD. Most likely to be the (leadless) solder that Sony's forced to use between PCB and ribbon these days. Shouldn't be an expensive repair.
It happen to me in few of my Sony cameras .

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
