The LCD screen on my Sony gradually lost the image. It is caused by the flexi/ribbon cable that runs from the camera body to the inside of the LCD screen breaking down. The copper tracks have broken. They may sometimes touch to give you a connection , but it will get worse. A replacement flexi is the only answer.
For my DCR-IP1E it cost me £31 (thats uk money....not dollars)
Sony Part Number A-7111-611-A (FP733 Mount) Taking the old one out was slightly tricky, putting the new one in is very tricky! I work in electronics, so I could achieve it but if you are not happy with electronic stuff, find someone who is.Straight forward for a repair shop expert. Tools needed? Just a small cross head screwdriver. Keep all bits with a note as you go along. Good luck.

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.


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.

Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to get the deleted files that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available.
If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be Data Recovery for Mac
