Hi, If you close lcd screen in its position, do you see image in eye piece (view finder) ? If yes, then replace flexible ribbon connecting wire between camera board and lcd board to get picture in lcd screen. Let me know if you need part number of flexible ribbon wire. Thanks.
Unfortunately you're going to need to get some repairs done to your device, the reasoning behind the black screen on recording mode is that one of the many pieces responsible for bringing the image from start to finish has become mis-aligned.
It's either going to be the CCD sensor that has shifted or one of the lenses is slightly off angle and is sending the image off into a wall on the inside of the camcorder.
Estimated repair cost is going to be in the range of $200 USD.
Best of luck with this!
If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.
And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
CCD Imager ( an electronic part) at the end of Lens Assy got defective thats why you can't see any result in camera mode.
Please contact nearset Sony repair shop for replacement of CCD Imager IC.
