You can mention the model of the set -- DCR-SR42 to get the strip connection as it is only available from Sony.
Equivalent one if availabe may not last as the original ....but this is a manufacturing fault of Sony to design the strip that moves through the mechanism and fails often.

SONY DCR-SR42 LCD problem The LCD display has blacked out. Suspecting flexible connector worn out or loose connection. I called Sony support and they mentioned it would cost $229 (shipping inclusice). Can...


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and will require disassembling the camera and LCD assembly to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and should 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.

How do I replace the LCD screen on a Sony cybershot dsc S930 camera.


I am not sure about the specific brand. Open the case by removing screws (usually 5-6). The LCD screen is immediately accessible. Lift it carefully and trace the ribbon connector. Lift the small flap in the connector carefully and pull out the ribbon cable. Replace it in the reverse order.

There is flexible ribbon wired between lcd board and camcorder board, it seems broken so no image on side lcd screen.

Buttons on the touch panel do not work at all. I tried calibrating the screen as the manual suggested but that does not work either.

You need a set of philips screw drivers size #0,#00 and #000. Buy parts camera with stuck out lens but good lcd from ebay. Then replace the lcd screen and the led back light assembly connected by flexible circuit and flip up connector.

Hi again,
E:61:11 shows that flexible wire of lens assembly is not inserted in camera main board connector properly.
There are two flexible wires from lens assembly in this camcorder, just check them and make sure both are plugged in main board connectors correctly.
This will solve your problem.

Sony DCR-HC42E LCD not working


(this is a copy of my post from another page, but is relevant to this 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.
I have now successfully repaired my camera with a new flexible circuit/ribbon cable, and have made some quick notes that can be found here:

and here

Good luck.
