Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD101 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

My Sony handycam DVD camcorder dcr-dvd101 when in picture mode or record mode looks looks like someone has poured paint inside the screen with these funny lines and all. But if you play back movies from before it started doing this they are fine we just can't take any new ones. Can you tell me what causes this?

This is a broken LCD screen and can usually 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.

Viewfinder screen and viewfinder are black and lens is off


Make sure the selector switch is turned to record (the center position) and camcorder is turned on. Make sure the viewfinder is pulled out fully when you look in it. If that doesn't work try resetting the camcorder. Open the LCD and there is a small hole near the play button, gently push a paper clip in the hole all the way and press the power on button.
