The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to 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.


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.

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.
