Hi,
It sounds video processor is not getting voltage from sub power supply section on main board of camcorder that is why you do not get any video output in lcd or viewfinder in any mode.
I'm Sony camcorder tech and can help you if you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can take apart camcorder easily with proper tools.
In my opinion, there would be fuse blow out that provides volts to video signal section. Let me know exact model number of camcorder to proceed and if you feel uncomfortable working on camcorder then local camera repair shop is an option to get it fixed.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Nothing in viewfinder or on screen


Same thing happened to me. Seems to be 'common' although Sony says they have no recall on the CCD. Look around the forum and you will find others with the same problem.

Distorted Viewfinder Only In PIcture Mode


Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off


If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
