Touch Screen not responding to Touch

I am using Sony DCR-HC30E Handycam for about 2 years. My handycam suddenly developed a problem, the LCD touch screen is not responding to touch. The LCD is displaying everything fine, the picture quality is like before but only the touch menu is not working. I read the user manual and trouble-shooting section, I did Calibration as mentioned there and also Reset my handycam but there is no solution. The handycam is used very carefully and it never fell down, no shock to the camera. What should I do now?

    My Handycam got fine after I placed it in a dry place for 24 hours. I removed the cassete and kept the cassete door open. I think the problem was moisture in the camera. Its is functioing perfectly normal. Thanks for the suggestions.

The touch screen is not working. After resetting

If the buttons on the touch-panel LCD screen do not respond correctly or do not work at all, adjust the LCD screen calibration. Consult the instruction manual if specific information is required to perform this procedure.
NOTE: The touch-panel LCD screen cannot be calibrated if it is rotated.

Sony pc 101 camcorder

Weird.. same with mine! Seems perfectly fine with exception to this problem. No obvious damage, camera still functions as expected, but yes, not responsive to touch. Could it be a date issues (2008.. lead year ?).

Sony Handycam DCR-HC30E

It is possible that your CCD has gone wrong. Best thing is to take it to a Sony Repair Centre, and if it is that it will be repaired for free, even if the warrenty has expired.
