I have replaced the flex cable and the camera will work fine afterward. I have also replaced the cable only to find the LCD / Touchscreen module is defective. The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them as well as an aftermarket supplier.


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.

The monitor is black. You can't see what you want to record.


Possibly just faulty flex cable,not the entire monitor.


I had similar trouble on my 2nd hand HC32 no picture,no light,no response on touch-screen function - turned out to be faulty flex cable that runs between LCD and the main body.

Cost me around 60 USD to fix by non-SONY service shop.Now it works like new.Worth every dime for this outdated camcorder.

DCR-HC32 LCD


Hi,
I also got the problem of LCD screen not displaying anything (HCR 21E). Since I am an electronics engineer, I opened it on this weeked. And saw that flex wire for LCD has two parts (a) part for touch screen (b) part for lcd display. And in my case part (b) is broken. I checked that part on Sony website and it costs 22 USD.
I am not sure, how much will they charge for repairing.
