The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon connector between the LCD and 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.

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

SOURCE: What is the docking station for?

a usb cable will work... the docking stations are handy as you just put the camera/camcorder into the docking station ... no extra cord... often has the charger built in as well

SOURCE: I need to know what parts I need to have for my camcorder

http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/productSearch.do

This is the sony site, if you look here you will see all the accessories that you can get, there is a lot more here then what came with your cam, but you can see the part and the model#.

Now you should take the name of the part,say,,, battery charger for sony,,, and put this in Google.com
You should only need the model# of your cam and not the part#,but now you have them anyway.
Search the internet for it,you should find it a lot cheaper then buying it from sony. Any other questions,
please feel free to post back and everyone is more than happy to help you.

SOURCE: hdr-sr11 screen gone blank

Possible that the linking cord to the display has come off . This is the flexible cord which moves along with the hinges and in most cases it can TEAR off at the hinges due to wearing .
Now you need to remove the display panel screws and the mount to the camcorder, there are small crews on the sides, remove the LCD panel and check the flexible linking cord.
If this is seen to be damaged order the part from Sony and repalce while threading the strip in the same pattern.
If this fault is not seen then the LCD panel or the drive ( mother board ) is the suspect.
You might need help and support in this case as it involves equipment support.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter-Convert AVHCD to Avid I have Sony...


Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter-Convert AVHCD to Avid

I have Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD HDD camera to shoot family videos and beach videos. However, after I transfer .mts files from Sony HDR-SR11, Avid does not support the AVCHD file. I wonder the best AVCHD workflow into Avid from Sony HDR-SR11 and google for solutions.
I was recommended with Sorenson Squeeze to convert Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid DNxHD codec. However, Sorenson Squeeze does not natively support .mts and the file extension should be changed to .m2ts. The conversion time is much longer than that the original clip. One thing should be mentioned is that the exported DNxHD is loaded quickly to Avid. Sorenson Squeeze also costs quite a lot. I just find a better Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter - Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. The price is dramatically low comparing to Sorenson Squeeze, and the output MOV video works in Avid MC and Xpress Pro.
Here is how I import Sony HDR-SR11 camera videos to Avid Media Composer by converting 1920x1080 MTS to HD MOV.
Step 1. Load Sony HDR-SR11 videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
Run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the Mac Sony HDR-SR11 MTS to Avid converter on Mac Snow Leopard, and click the "Add" button to load HD .mts videos.
Step 2. Choose AVC MOV for Avid.
Click the "Format" option, and choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MOV (AVC)(*.mov), and the Sony MTS to Avid converter will transcode the HD MTS files to MOV for Avid MC, Xpress Pro.

Step 3. Convert Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD to Avid.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Sony MTS to Avid Converter will start converting HDR-SR11 AVCHD MTS to HD MOV for Avid Xpress Pro, or the upgraded Media Composer 5.
As soon as the conversion in finished, you can import Sony HDR-SR11 videos to Avid Media Composer, Avid Xpress Pro for editing. The output HD MOV also works in Final Cut Pro and iMovie, and other non-linear editing software like Adobe Premiere on Mac OS X.
If you are using other Sony AVCHD cameras, you may also face the same problem. Have a look at the Sony HD camcorder page for Sony HDR-XR520, HDR-CX110, DSC-TX7, HDR-TG7 and other models.

HDR-SR12 - LCD Touch screen very dim , screen works but almost completely dark. tried increased brightness etc no help


My camera's backlight went dark. Occasionally it would work if I pressed just the right way, but it was basically toast.

Search ebay for an HDR-SR11 or HDR-SR12 flex cable similar to this one:

It's not impossible to replace, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart. Some offer a replacement service with it. I'm doing mine myself. Results to follow, maybe, if I remember to post following the repair.

The touch screen has stoped responding to touch what is the most likely reason, it did this a couple days ago and i calibrated it and that helped for awhile but now nothing works


I have the same problem. Without the LCD working, I cannot retrieve the data from HDD to my computer. I believe that it is a serious design flaw. Fixing the camcoder will cost $300, not really worthy. Does any idea how to retrieve data even Touch screen does not function?
