Problem with Sony Handycam

To whom it may concern, I'm not sure what the problem is, but when the camera is on the only thing visible in the viewfinder and the LCD screen is lines. Everything is very distorted. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks, Lisa

I dropped my SONY HDR-SR1 Handycam with LCD open. LCD cracked in 3 lines. Display 75% visible. Touch screen still works. Over time display now 50% black 50% visible. I have downloaded the Service...

LCD's can be replaced althhough it is really not a user serviceable problem and will usually need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Play back fuzzy

It looks like dirty video heads. Put brand new tape on camera and play it all the way to the end several times if necessary. It will clean the video heads. Good luck!

Nothing in viewfinder or on screen

Same thing happened to me. Seems to be 'common' although Sony says they have no recall on the CCD. Look around the forum and you will find others with the same problem.

No Audio only video is visible.

Replacing the speaker part number 152959011 2,0 cm should solve the problem. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
