Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR200 Camcorder

3 Answers

No display on view screen but able to record and play by connecting to TV

For some reason my camcorder screen showing nothing. Initially it started flickering and then no display. It happened for couple of times and then it completely off, may be it is a loose connection. I am still able to charge it, record videos. By connecting TV, I can able to browse and play videos as well.

From one angle (not straight or regular way) on camcorder screen, I can see the picture and options but almost invisible(dark). Screen display has set to full brightness. So, I would like to have solution(at least instructions to open my camcorder).

    I took mine in, apparently it was the power board. I could by a new camera for the price it would cost to fix this. Sony should take them all back for free, since so many people are having problems.

    Same problem. Display backlight will flicker off, especially when moving the display but sometimes when not touching the display. The whole thing powers often powers down when flickering. New batteries do not fix the problem.

    I have same problem. I talked with sony company and was told to pay $50 check fee to have a look. I think it is not right and not fair because the camcorer is only 1.5 years old around. I bought it July 2007 and It has the problem since December of 2008. I terrably suspect the quality and design of this camcorder. Just wonder any solution.

    I have the same problem...flickering initially, then almost black. You can still see the screen but it's extremely dim.

    The lcd flex cable needs replacing. I resolved the same problem on a jvc camcorder by following a video on U tube. But now I need to do the same repair on a panasonic SDR-S26 H80. Does anyone have a video for that to help me out? Or if you've seen a video on u tube or can post one up that will be great! I'm repairing this for a friend.

I have the same problem: Technical Service says flexible tape between LCD and camera could be open in some lines. The solution is to change that tape.

Jvc gr-d820ek screen not working


Do the videos work when viewed on a computer or TV (if using HDMI or other connections for TV)? If the camcorder still records video, but the screen itself isn't showing anything, then the screen needs replacing. If it does not record videos, then it's an internal repair issue.

You can connect the A/V output of the Camcorder to the A/V inputer(Yellow, REd and White) to view the recordings on the TV screen. Once you connect the Camcorder, playback the videos and select input using INPUT/TV/VIDEO button.

When camcorder is turned on the screen shows red or yellow screen


I have the same problem of picture distortion when recording on my PV-GS200 camcorder. It's due to a faulty CCD block, which you can read about on various websites. I can play back pre-CCD failure tapes without a problem. Panasonic recalled quite a few GS200 camcorders with specific serial numbers in the US and Canada, and replaced the faulty 3-CCD chip free of charge. I just discovered this tonight and intend to ring Panasonic tomorrow, as the camcorder - bought new - lasted only two years before the CCD fault became apparent. Obviously, the camcorder was not of merchantable quality.

Hello


If the display is defective we can supply it from Sony.
Check whether you can play the recorded images by connecting it to a PC.
