Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Screen: fold out screen displays nothing till rotated 180 deg. but touch screen works

I pulled my dcr-hc40 out of its case that has been stored in my room since last summer when we used it last. It worked beautiful then, but i pulled it out of the case this week end and the fold out screen doesn't light up when you fold it out. If you rotate it 180 deg. so the screen is facing away from you it flips and lights up like its supose to. the touch sensors still work when it is facing back of the camera. What is the problem with it.

The latch which connect the small screen has a thin ribbon like cable running into the small screen. the cable seem to be cut or loosely connected. open it and chk you can fix it.
