Sony DCR-HC32 display problem

Hi,
i have a sony DCR-HC32 miniDV camcorder. After 1 yr warrenty expired, the LCD display started to change colours like complete green, red and then finally blocked out. I used the view finder for a week. then it also started to give overexposed image and under exposed view. But all the time, it record good picture as usual. It is expensive to take it to sony or other places (>60% of its purchase price). I found some help from your website. it ask to change the flex cable. Please give me the exact name and part NO of cable. How easy it is to fix?
thank you
Selvam

Replace the flexwire asap, it's hard to fix and you need pro help to do it. flexwire has a possibility of shortcircuiting the unit, the reason your small viewer started to show problem. Here in the philippines i'm not replacing it with an exact replacement, instead i'm replacing it with the more strong wires or cables such as the one used in laptop computers, still, you need profix to do it.

Problem with the Sony Handycam DCR-HC32 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Moisture condensation turn off 1 hour


It can be a tiny dew switch mounted on near the drum motor, Which you can change off values with a resisitor for the fault .
Also if you can blow hot air into the cassette tray this would enable the dew switch to open out.

Focus issues


Hi,
My reply is bit technical. Your camera requires Flang-Back Adjustment.
Above said adjustment will set focus lenses in correct order / position to obtain crispy focus as it was before.
There are few special tools designed by Sony used in Flang-Back adjustment and only Sony Service Centers can perform such adjustments. Non-Sony repair shops do not have such things.
Just for reference, below view shows required tools for adjustments in this model.

DCR-HC32 LCD


Hi,
I also got the problem of LCD screen not displaying anything (HCR 21E). Since I am an electronics engineer, I opened it on this weeked. And saw that flex wire for LCD has two parts (a) part for touch screen (b) part for lcd display. And in my case part (b) is broken. I checked that part on Sony website and it costs 22 USD.
I am not sure, how much will they charge for repairing.
