I have problem with the image on the LCD view.
When I open the LCD panel to view the image ( keep the camcorder in any mode e.g., recording, viewing)the picture on the scree is not steady it keeps scrolling. However, if I look into the view finder the image is normal.This probelm started recently. I have tried pressing the reset button, the problem doesn't go away.
Can any of you please assist me in understanding and fixing the problem.
Thanks & Regards,
LCD panel Ribbon cable is defective, replace the ribbon cable or Before replacing, try with cleaning the ribbon cable end, that is going to the mother board of the camera.

If you're looking into a new TV purchase these days, you have only a few options… Plasma and LCD are major hitters. What follows is this professional’s opinion; you must ultimately do the research yourself.
Plasma TVs Pros: Exceptional color reproduction. Our eyes have become accustom to viewing TVs with Phosphorus displays. As with TVs of old, Plasma TVs also use Phosphorus to create the beautiful colors our eyes crave. The viewing angle (side to side) and refresh rate (rate at which the image is refreshed) of a Plasma product shines above most other product types. Plasma TVs also have a glass protection screen in front of the panel which can help protect the panel from impact. Prices have fallen recently and have made the Plasma TV a very affordable purchase.
Cons: Energy usage. Using a Plasma TV has been likened to 'leaving the refrigerator door open'. Reliability and longevity are also a factor to consider. Over time, the Plasma panel becomes more sensitive; “Sparkles” or misfiring pixels are common. The Plasma uses many high power components; which, due to failure, have given it a less than reliable stigma. Image retention and image burn are quick to occur. Realistically, 5-7 years of life.
LCD TVs Pros: Light weight and bright picture. Color reproduction has improved by leaps and bounds over the recent years. Some products available do rival the Plasma products in picture quality and reproduction. Cost cuts have also brought the LCD into the price range of many. Energy usage is typically less than that of the Plasma. Image retention is not a major concern for this product. Less parts than a Plasma = Less failure. LCD panel life is estimated to be about 10 years.
Cons: LCD panels use back-lighting systems. Because the 'color' of the light does not change, the color reproduction of the LCD product is not as natural to the eye as the Plasma product.
LCD-LED TVs (Same as LCD TV, with the following exceptions) Pros: LED back-lighting produces a more Plasma like color response.
Cons: Panel life is about 70% that of the standard LCD products.

http://www.sony.ca/sonyca/view/english/warranty/productalert2.shtml When the product is used in camera mode, the liquid crystal
display (LCD) panel and/or electronic viewfinder displays either a
distorted image or no image at all.
Sony Corporation has determined that this condition occurs very rarely,
but may be accelerated if an affected product is exposed to high
temperature and/or high humidity environments.
In an effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony of Canada Ltd. has
elected to offer, effective October 3, 2005, free out-of-warranty
repair to owners of affected Sony digital camera, camcorder and PDA
products that exhibit the aforementioned condition caused by the image
sensor device. See below for a list of affected models:
to my knowledge digital slrs aren't supposed to show you the image on the screen before you shoot because the battery would get used up too quickly this is what the viewfinder is for and the lcd is purely there to tell you info on what the settings are and to view your pics after shooting, I have the 400d and its the same for that.Hope this helps
