I have the sam camcorder. It has the same problem. When you press the on/off button, it does not do any thing just red light blinking on the top. After wandering with buttons without really knowing what I am doing, I took it to Sanyo service center. They found the ribon connecting the LCD to main body being damaged. They replaced it and charged me $75 for that. After that the camcorder works good. I saw the ribon is very vulnerable. If you twist the camcorder just a little hard, that ribon may get shocked.
Strange, mine lasts a very very very long time, but in a standby state (power on, just close the lcd lid). Have you tried to just keep it in the standby state? I will never turn it off unless I need to, like to change sd cards, because it is super quick to capture video and it does not kill the battery.
I have 2 of these dual cameras and John is quite right, the Sanyo HD2000 is not a "normal" camera, its quite abnormally exceptional and way ahead of its time! Having a f1.8 lens, 1/2.5" cmos, 1080p @ 60 FRAMES/second, really makes it not "Normal". You will need a better computer to process the crazy 1080p/60fps images.
If further you have the same problem it means there is a gear-motor alignment of the lens which moves in and out with the help of motor. This part is replaceable at an authorized Sanyo Service Center. Aprox repair cost is $120.
You can buy a new LCD and flex cable for $78 at the place Sanyo recomended to me. It takes a week for them to order it and a week to ship out. Call 1-800-421-5080 and give them part # 6450930331.
Mine has the same problem. I took it apart and by pressing on the flex cable my picture was restored. As soon as I let go the screen would go. Trying to decide between replacing the part or the camera.
