Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR42 Camcorder
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
