Touchscreen buttons not working

Hi, I'm using Sony Handycam DCR DVD505. The buttons on the LCD panel did not respond when I touched them. I tried to follow the steps for calibration, but I can't because, again, none of the buttons on LCD responded to the touches. Any thought? Thanks.

The flexwire is the problem of your camera, the touch screen connection is already cut..go to a service center for replacing or repairing the not easy for repairing that if you are not a technician that wiring is like a strand of hair that why is difficult to fix but in our shop we modified that and become more durable than the original...

Yes, I solved this!

But you have to be very careful!

In my case, when it was not waorking, I opend only the LCD screen part and carefully put thick paper at the below part where all connection come (at the bottom of the screen).

It mean a thick paper is puttet under the carbon connections.

I screwed back all I opened earlier!

One thing to mention that I turned the cam on when ever I was doing work with that!

That all!

It is woring for years! and I am happy to let you know because I also was searching on websites to get it solved. At last I took the resk, and got success!

Hope for the best!

Why does LCD screen not respond to touch

Common problem. There is a flexible cable that goes from inside the body to the flip out LCD screen. More than likely, this cable needs to be replaced. Time for Professional service. We can help!

My SONY handycam 505 touch screen does not respond. What can I do. Is it fixable?

Unfortunately this fault might need more attention as the set must be opened out.
Try to remove battery and reset, dry out by keeping the set warm, clean the display panel of any dirt.
if this wont work the camcorder must be openend and checked on the diplay panel if there is any line stips, the flexible lines being cut or broken. remove and fix connectors, if set was not used for long time put the set ON for several hours.
If this wont work you must contact Sony service to confirm if the display control board is faulty

Touch Screen doesn't work at all. Can't use camera. How do we fix

Hi. Just a tip, try to do a calibration on the touchscreen. If it still does not work, there is a problem with your touchscreen itself. Hope this help. Goodluck

Touchscreen is inoperabable

This fault is often caused by a failing flat cable that connects the LCD panel and the rest of the camera. In its early stages it is possible to get the buttons on the touch panel to work by carefuly changing the angle of the LCD panel while trying out the buttons until you get a position where they work.
When the flat cable gets worse , the picture on the LCD panel will start deteriorating and go off altogether.
At this stage you may consider having the flat cable replaced

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.
