    i think i have the same problem with my DCR-HC21. i can use the camera with the LCD closed (rec, view, etc) but the LCD is black and unresponsive when opened. looking for advice/instructions on how to trouble shoot/open camera to find out what needs fixing. a service manual costs $35 from sony but a download would be much preferred! -MAS

    Thanks for the reply i have nt had time to look into it. But i was a told by a sony repair center that they ve had customers with similar problems and the strip costs about AU$40. With all the service charge it'll come to 200 so thats why I thought I'd do it my self. Just get the strip off somewhere. I d try the repair shop first.

LCD screen not working on my Sony Hc 42 camcorder


Hi
The LCD cable is faulty. You need to replace the LCD cable from SONY authorised service center.

It's a common problem as this cable is bend each time when we open the LCD screen, so the cable become faulty.

DCR HC-42 LCD screen problem


http://www.fixya.com/support/t183692-dcr_hc_42_lcd_screen_problem
Just look for the post by 'airshod'. He has even put up a couple of links to pdf files with photos of the whole procedure. I used them and got mine fixed. Exactly the same problem as yours.
Be careful, though: Jackstar's (aka airshod) instructions leave this out, which you will discover after putting the whole camera back together (which is a pain): the ViewFinder (VF) will go dead, plus the picture in the LCD will not reverse when you reverse the LCD panel (which means that when you flip the panel to watch yourself while you video yourself, the picture will be upside-down, although you don't need to worry about it being recorded properly, of course. It's just a pain to aim the correctly when it's not showing the right way up!). Airshod had the same happen to him.
If you need further info on the VF dying after re-assembly, look at this link:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t901516-flex_cable_replaced_but_now_vf_dead

Unfortunately I won't have time to try the suggestion for a while, so I won't be of much help. I guess a camera is more useful with a broken VF and a working LCD panel, than the other way around.
Sony really ought to have addressed this issue by now. It's not reasonable to expect the camera to loose its LCD after only a year or two!

DCR HC-42 LCD screen problem


I have opened my camera and found that the flexible circuit/ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the inside of the camera is broken. This is due to poor design, in which the flexible circuit cannot withstand the constant movement of the LCD.
I have managed to buy a new cable from a Sony repair dealer, and will attempt to fit it later on this week.

The part number for the new flexible cable is:
Ref no. 171
1-864-761-11
FP-185 FLEXIBLE BOARD

if you are interested in how I get on with it, you can mail me at jackstar@ntlworld.com
I won't bother trying to complain to Sony directly, because it is quite apparent that they really couldn't give a toss.
