My handycam's LCD appears to be blank since yesterday.
Can you please advise whether anything can be done myself or do I have to take it for repairs.
I get a blank LCD. Worked fine 2 days ago.

Verify whether or not the date and time appear on your Brother machine's LCD. If anything is displayed on your Brother machine's LCD, then it is most likely receiving power.
If your Brother machine's LCD is blank, continue toStep 2.
If your Brother machine's LCD displays a message other than the date and time, please refer to the FAQ about the message being displayed for further information.
Verify the Brother machine's power cord is connected securely to the power outlet. If you are using a surge protector, extension cord, or power switch, disconnect it and plug the Brother machine directly into the wall outlet.
If the Brother machine is turned OFF, its LCD will be blank. Please make sure the Brother machine is powered ON by pressing and holding theOn/OfforPower Savekey. This key is located in the upper-right corner of the control panel.
If your Brother machine's LCD is still blank, connect it to a completely different, known working power outlet. If the Brother machine powers up, then the problem is related to the original outlet.
Confirm the power outlet is working by plugging another known working device (a lamp, radio, etc.) directly into the same outlet. If the other device does not work, the problem is related to that power outlet. If a wall switch controls the outlet, verify that the switch is ON.
If your Brother machine still will not power on, please contact Brother Customer Service.In Case You Still face Problem and Need Online Assistance Then Please Follow Us For On :
