Why does LCD screen not respond to touch


Common problem. There is a flexible cable that goes from inside the body to the flip out LCD screen. More than likely, this cable needs to be replaced. Time for Professional service. We can help!

The touch screen of my sony dcr-hc52 video camera has stopped responding entirely. i can still record and enter cassetes but the touch screen has stopped responding. what do i do?


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.

The touch screen is not working. After resetting


If the buttons on the touch-panel LCD screen do not respond correctly or do not work at all, adjust the LCD screen calibration. Consult the instruction manual if specific information is required to perform this procedure.
NOTE: The touch-panel LCD screen cannot be calibrated if it is rotated.

Touchscreen buttons not working


the flexwire is the problem of your camera, the touch screen connection is already cut..go to a service center for replacing or repairing the flexwire...is not easy for repairing that if you are not a technician that wiring is like a strand of hair that why is difficult to fix but in our shop we modified that and become more durable than the original...
