Question about Sony HVR-Z1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

LCD DOES NOT WORK ON SONY Z-1

The LCD on my Z1 is blank or presents half a distorted image unless I face it towards the subject. When I face it towards the subject the picture is perfect. I I prefer using the viewfinder, but in certain situations it isn't my best option.

Thanks

Not seeing anything through the viewfinder when switched on


Most cameras and video recorders now display picture either through the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
Your camera model allows the same. Although if you turn the lcd screen towards the subject (screen faces the same direction as the lens) then the viewfinder switches on.

Black lcd display when fully closed with the lcd facing out


In that condition you should have picture on LCD and if you don't have, that means flexible wire between LCD board and camera board is cracked and requires replacement.

Let me know exact model of Sony camcorder to provide you part number info about flexible wire, in case you want to repair it by yourself.

Hi, i have a sony z1...


Hi,
I assume that you can see live view to record on mini dv cassette but can't see recorded image in playback.

Let me know when you playback mini dv cassette, does time counter run time intervals or stays blank on LCD / eye finder?

If this happens, you have dirty / clogged video heads in camera and need to use good quality mini dv head cleaning cassette to clean heads. This will resolve problem.

Need further help, let me know please.
Thank you.

No picture displayed on lcd (blank)


Does your camera playback old recordings fine? and just can't show live view to record?
If yes, then camera has problem of bad ccd imager and this part will be replaced.
Sony announced free of cost repair scheme for subject problem. DCR-HC20E is PAL system camera so Sony Support UK can be visited for free of cost repair details as your camera model is listed there.
If you live in different country, let me know to guide you further.
Thank you.

Sony TRV38 HandyCam - Blank LCD problem


i think i have a solution, still experimentinh on it. i have a drv model of sony handycam. it was showing a blank screen for quite few days. Sony service centre asked for 16,000 rupees to replace major parts.i declined and kept experimenting at home. i played the video and kept accessing the memory stick through lens and lcd screen simultaneously and switch off and on giving time gaps. day 1- it was still blank. day 2- ther was flickering when i switched on the cam. but i kept repeating this process of playinf video and turn it off wen it was getting very hot. day 3- camera started showing images very wide. day 4- it started capturing images properly. Voila! but the images were dark and grainy. this is the current status now. i hope it becums better. i wish this works for your camcorders too. All the best!
