Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV250E Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Gray LCD Screen

I have a Sony Digital 8 Handycam (model DCR-TVR260). When opened, the LCD screen is grayed out and you can't see anything.  If you tilt the LCD screen you can faintly see the display information. When you close the LCD screen, you can see theough the viewfinder just fine.

When the product is used in camera mode, the liquid crystal display (LCD) panel and/or electronic viewfinder displays either a distorted image or no image at all.

Sony Corporation has determined that this condition occurs very rarely, but may be accelerated if an affected product is exposed to high temperature and/or high humidity environments.

In an effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony of Canada Ltd. has elected to offer, effective October 3, 2005, free out-of-warranty repair to owners of affected Sony digital camera, camcorder and PDA products that exhibit the aforementioned condition caused by the image sensor device. See below for a list of affected models:

My Sont HandyCam DCR-SR82 screen display is gray. it blinks, and the touch screen still works, but no picture is showing on the display. it started out by a rolling/blinking picture and went to gray and...

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body. This will require disassembling the camera and LCD unit to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Gray bars on screen during video playback

My advice is that you should by a cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!
