  • Perform a power resetting of the Camcorder. To perform power resetting, please remove the battery pack, turn the Power switch to Play/EDIT/ON for more than 15 seconds, turn the Power switch to OFF position and then reinsert the battery pack.

    Hone, that means the screen is not ready calibrate too.. Perform resetting by following the steps on my article and if the issue persists, find the repair center

    no, DON'T find the repair center! the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the camcorder is probably broken! search up how to fix it yourself. it's, like $200 cheaper. or try flipping the screen around.

The ribbon cable that connects the camcorder to the screen is probably just broken. just search up how to replace it (it's easy!)and replace for $200 dollars cheaper than sending it in. here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHe9rCBWdhY .
or try flipping the screen around, like I said above. (I'm the anonymous person up there.)

My handycam dcr hc21 screen wouldn't work when you touched it. i followed the directions and reset the camera. now the screen has the reset screen and i can't refigurate it. please help


Hi Alisa,

You have broken fine flex cable between your screen and board/PCB causing your touch screen ****** to work. So first of all you need to replace the cable first with new one.
