Hi - I think you may have activated the "mirror mode" by rotating the LCD panel.

See page 33 in the manual:

upside down - 401cc20.jpg

You can download the manual from the link underlined in blue below:

Display is upside down


hi,
it sounds like the tinny switch that detects the rotation of the LCD is blocked on the 180 degrees mode. it can be fixed but you need to disassemble the cam ! or may be try a little shock near the hinge... sometimes machines need a little kick !

I got cryptic answer regarding the problem that the picture on the monitor on my camcroder GZ-HM400 is upside down.


There is a switch within the camera that controls the orientation of the LCD image. When the screen is flipped upside down, the switch is supposed to tell the camera to flip the image upside down as well. If this switch is damaged, the camcorder gets the wrong signal and the image will be displayed upside down. This can usually 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.

LCD PICTURE UPSIDE DOWN


This is a feature not a bug...The LCD is designed to flip the picture when you rotate the screen. This is so that you can see what you filming or be in the picture and see yourself filmed. I can't remember if it flips automatically or not. But, I would first try inverting and reverting the LCD screen to see if you can get it to detect orientation, then check and see if there is a setting to manually set the orientation of the LCD instead under the menu options.

The image is flipped upside down and won't go back I think the camera might have been dropped


THIS IS A REPAIR SHOP TASK

normally there is a micro switch fixed at the awivl head of the lcd panel. when the lcd is rotated to 180 the switch gets engaged thus turns the image upside down. iF IT IS PERMANENTLY UPSIDE DOWN yhen most probably the switch has worn out.and its not resetting.
You could try a few gentle taps to see if it releases the micro switch

flip switch is not working or stucked, a loose wire connected to this switch is also possible. you may open the unit and check for it. a pro fix is better.
