Usually there is flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder that got broken and resulted lcd does not work.
You need to replace that flexible wire by qualified camera tech.

it's not exactly the same, but this website shows a pretty foolproof way on how to fix it on a different camera.
i fixed the touchscreen on my hc26 with it on the first try. i put a piece of paper folded a couple times under the ribbon cable connections where it meets the screen (against the plastic frame for the screen, under the blue cable), and put a piece of cardboard against the circuit board to give it more pressure from that side. works like a charm!

Most likely, the flex cable that runs from your LCD to your main PCboard is bad. The only thing that you can try to do is flip your LCD around and against the camera. See if the touch screen will work then. The camcorder will still need to be repaired by an experienced technician at some point.
Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body or the LCD module itself 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.
