LCD screen isn't working.

I have a samsung VPD 351 camcorder , the LCD is not displaying anything but the camcorder is working through the viewfinder. First the screen turned white, it was displaying pictures on turning the flap off side and eventually the remaining picture on the LCD screen was gone. It now remains black. Please suggest me the best solution of problem please. :)

Samsung scl901 camcorder screen "rolls" on lcd

Possible that there is loss of sync from the signal and so it is unstable on both the viewfinder and the LCD display. This can be a fault on the main board- processing section. It can also be related to weak passive components or development of moisture. Leave the camera ON for few hours , place it on a warm surface - near to a table lamp and see if the fault changes. If so you need to keep using the camera often to keep the circuits active.

No display in viewfinder and LCD

i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.

My handycam screen is blank and doesn't show anything

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if there is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCD when attempting to record.
NOTES:
* Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the viewfinder or LCD status after completing each step.
* It may be necessary to refer to the operating instructions provided with the camcorder for information on how to perform a task on your specific model.
1. Ensure the lens cap on the front of the camcorder has been removed.
2. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted in the camcorder.
3. Ensure the STANDBY/LOCK switch is set to the STANDBY position.
4. Turn on the camcorder and set it to the CAMERA mode.
5. Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD.
IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD. To conserve power, the viewfinder and LCD will not display at the same time. To use the viewfinder, the LCD must be closed.
6. If the issue is not resolved, reset the camcorder to factory specifications.
NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing the troubleshooting steps, service may be required .

Not seeing anything through the viewfinder when switched on

Most cameras and video recorders now display picture either through the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
Your camera model allows the same. Although if you turn the lcd screen towards the subject (screen faces the same direction as the lens) then the viewfinder switches on.

Flat Cable Info.

Best thing for you to do, would be to contact Samsung, and give them a complete description of what flat cable you need to replace. Do not just say flat cable as there are several flat cables in this camcorder. Good Luck http://www.samsungparts.com/customerservices/contactus.asp

Malfunction?

If the LCD display is open, the viewfinder becomes inactive. Shut the LCD display, and the image should appear through the viewfinder. If there is still no image, the camcorder may require service.
