Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

LCD Screen not working

Hi, I purchased sony DCR-HC42E on August 2005. Yesterday the LCD Screen suddenly stopped working. I can record it through view finder, but LCD screen is just blank. Also the message 'cover is not open' appears, while the cover is already opened. Also please let me know if I will get a free service if I am under the warranty period for the above issue.

The problem of your camera is the flexwire cable of the lcd monitor that why you don't see nothing in the panel,Also the message 'cover is not open' appears,while the cover is already opened the switch on cover have poor contact..it is not covered by sony service...it have to replace or repair that switch and flexwire cable....
