I flipped open the lcd of my Sony Handycam HC32 and instead of the display being in color, as normal, it was in red and black. After turning off the camcorder and then turning it on again, there has been no display of any sort on the lcd. However I am still able to record using the viewfinder. What seems to be the problem?

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I also got the problem of LCD screen not displaying anything (HCR 21E). Since I am an electronics engineer, I opened it on this weeked. And saw that flex wire for LCD has two parts (a) part for touch screen (b) part for lcd display. And in my case part (b) is broken. I checked that part on Sony website and it costs 22 USD.
I am not sure, how much will they charge for repairing.
replace the flexwire asap, it's hard to fix and you need pro help to do it. flexwire has a possibility of shortcircuiting the unit, the reason your small viewer started to show problem. Here in the philippines i'm not replacing it with an exact replacement, instead i'm replacing it with the more strong wires or cables such as the one used in laptop computers, still, you need profix to do it.
