The touch screen calibration on my Sony DCR-HC20 doesn't work? I keep touching the little 'x' and it keeps asking me to do it in all three places but never completes the calibration process and the screen menu buttons don't work.

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

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