The screen on my Insignia LCD TV isn't turning on. The red light is lite, so power is getting to it, but the screen is black. Cable guy said it was an esay do-at-home fix. Can you help?


It sounds more like a bad power supply, not enough juice to turn on the screen, I've seen this problem come up in just about every LCD TV out there, very common. Some TV's make a clicking noise while other just don't turn on, I am almost sure it's a bad power supply that just went bad and can't power up the screen at all. Not an easy fix even though you were told It was an easy do it at home fix. Unless you are good at taking apart stuff, you can open the back of the TV and eye ball the power supply unit for a bad blown capacitor or another component that is burned up or melted? Some times you can actually smell a burnt component and sometimes you can't.

The most common problem with this camcorder is the lcd cable assy. It is the cable that comes in from the lcd panel assy to the internal board assy. I have seen possibly 100 of these cameras and different models and this fixes it everytime.
I hope this helps.

Dcr sr80 LCD cracked


I had the same problem with my camera and Best Buy wanted $300 to fix it. As you know the camera itself can be bought for close to that price now. I did some research and found the part (lcd screen) for $49 on a website called darntoothysam.com The part itself took only about twenty minutes to change. (and believe me I'm not an elctronics person.

Lcd Screen


Sorry to hear that!
The only thing I would sugest is to pull the battery (and leave it out for 24 hours (or longer)) to try to reset the camera. But I would guess that the LCD stoped working and the white screen you see is the back lit screen mounted behind the LCD.
