    I have this same problem. The troubleshooting area of the manual says to "calibrate" the LCD screen, using certain specific instructions...but I tried following the instructions, and I am not getting the proper information showing up (ie. "Hold displ/batt info for 5 seconds until "X" appears on screen"....But there is no "X" that appears.

The switch is broken, when you open the flap for the lcd, there is a switch its broken/defective. Look for a replacement.

I believe this is a main board problem. IF you still have a warranty you should send the camera back to sony. You dont believe you can turn the lcd buttons off. You can turn off the button clicks so it doesnt make any noise but you cannot turn off the buttons on the lcd.

Panasonic HM-TA1 won't power on with battery fully charged.


The battery will not charge when the device is turned on. Make sure that when you connect it to your computer via its usb that you do not turn it on otherwise it wont charge.


The annoying thing about this device is that when you connect it to your computer and turn it on, on the LCD it will say "connecting via usb" and the memory bar will show that it is fully charged, however the battery is not. This must just be a design flaw as the battery won't be charged.

Just remember to plug it in and leave it, do not turn it on!

Camcorder will not even turn on... help...


you could take it apart just be careful, when you take a part off put the screws next to the part were they were when they were on there, on the mainboard on the edge there are fuses that have letters on them i cant remember but it might be four fuses that are white with black writing either h or j on them look closely you have to use a ohm meter put it to sound and check each one when you dont get a beeping sound then that could be your problem or a flex might have come loose thats really all you could do.
