Did you find a repair place? I am in the same situation, with the same problem, in Ottawa. If you did get it fixed, how much did it cost?

IN SONY HANDY CAM HDD XR150 - LCD SCREEN THE SOME COLOR LINES ARE DISPLAYING INSTEAD OF PICTURE . THE PROBLEM OCCURRED AFTER REMOVING THE HANDY CAM FROM THE TV SET AS PLACED IT OVER 30MIN.


You need a new sony display flex cable installed in your camera.. it is a rather simple procedure.. dont let anyone tell you it is going to cost 300-500.00 to fix. the cable or flex that makes the display viewable is called a LCD display Flex. If you don't get any image on your display, the image has lines, display has no backlight or anything like that, replacing this flex cable should fix the problem.
you can buy the flex cable on ebay for less than 30.00 and the fix is rather simple.. the display has the flex cable on the back side and there are 3 screws that holds the display on the camera body. when you take them out of the camera using a PH00 small screw driver, you can then take the flex cable out of the display and easily replace.. it doesnt take rocket science to take these out and replace them.. good luck.. remember... you can buy the flex cable that makes the display viewable and then when it is replaced you will then be back in business with your camera.. good day....David...Mt Holly, NC

Sony TVR68 camcorder--Playback mode works fine. In camera mode, I have no image in eyepiece or LCD screen


Hi obx4ever, If this helps, the CCD was a problem I had in a lot of those camcorders and only replacement cured the problem. Only a sony authorized service centre will be able to replace the CCD for you. The CCD is a closed coupled device which generates the image that you see in the eyepiece and LCD screen when in picture mode. Michael.

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder LCD goes black purchase 4 year back. Any chance to repair LCD.


If you are able to see picture in the viewfinder (eyepiece) on closing the LCD, then the cable connecting the LCD to rest of the camera has gone bad and needs replacement. Take it to a Sony service centre. They will charge Rs 750 for service charges and about Rs 700 for the cable. You can save the service charges if you replace it yourself, but I'll advise against it unless you are conversant with these sort of precision jobs.

SONY DCR-SR300 with CMOS viewfinder


I suddenly had similar problems with my SR300. I replaced the flat ribbon cable (looks orange) between the body and the LCD display and camera works like new. The ribbon cable is subject to cracking the internal wires where it flexes when you open and close the LCD display. There was also a new part number for the cable so I suspect it is a known problem.

LCD screen went dead


The problem is a bad CCD inside the camera. I have 3 bad ones in my classroom. Sony was providing free service for some of their other models but failed to provide service (recall) on these models. I think it is important to contact Sony at 1-866-703-7669 and ask them why they are not providing support for this model since it has to do with a bad chip inside the camera. Sony should stand behind their consumer products and keep in mind that some people who use the consumer brands also use or recommend the professional brands to organizations like WEVA and others. If they do not support the consumer line products, will they support the more expensive industrial or professional products? Let's go Sony...fix these problems...there are too many of these cameras which have gone bad to say that it is not a CCD problem.
