I just discovered the same problem with mine today. I googled it and found many others with the same problem. Some one posted the Sony tech support number 1-866-703-7669 and I called it and within 10 minutes they issued me a call tag from UPS to repair it for free at thier Texas facility!!!! I thought for sure I was going to have to buy a new one.

If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.
And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
Why did you change the main pc board? If the display doesn't work, but viewfinder does, there are usually 3 possible causes- LCD itself, LCD board or LCD cable. You should give it to Sony and let them find which one of these is bad. I work in a Sony service center.
Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.
