Question about Canon VIXIA HF100 Flash Media Camcorder
Since upgrading your firmware would be the easiest and cheapest method to attempt to fix this issue, I would do that first and see if it helps.
If it's a hardware issue then deciding whether it would be "worth" fixing or not is more up to your preferences and pocketbook than any other consideration really. If the firmware upgrade doesn't fix the issue then I'd get an estimate on doing a hardware fix. You can decide from there whether to just get a new camera or fix the one you have.

Had the same problem with my HG20. My serial number had 12 numbers and two letters, and I had to omit the letters. Just enter the numbers. Hope this helps.

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body. This will require disassembling the camera and LCD unit to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician. below is a link to a repair facility which will be able to help you should you need it.
