The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

SONY camcorder DCR-HC42 color stripes

Try with the side display closed. Does the viewfinder show the pix OK? If so, then the problem is isolated to the LCD display. There is a small ribbon cable between the camera body and the LCD that sometimes gets a small crack in it. Replacing the cable usually fixes the problem.

LCD and view finder not working

Well I saw on other post you can turn the screen outwards. It is very difficult to use....but you have to do what you have to do. For the view finder I am still searching for an answer..
