Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Touch screen shows images but doesn't respond to touch

Hi I have had my HC42E for 3 years and it has worked fine until now. I got it out yesterday and it powered on as normal but when i flipped the screen out the touch screen doesn't respond to touch at all. I tried removing the tape and battery and re-starting it but with no sucess.

Any ideas on what could be wrong. I guess a repair to a touch screen would render it beyond economical repair.

Thanks

Weird.. same with mine! Seems perfectly fine with exception to this problem. No obvious damage, camera still functions as expected, but yes, not responsive to touch. Could it be a date issues (2008.. lead year ?).
