Sony HC7 flip out screen video rolls and no or limited touch scre

My HC7 started to roll on the flip out screen. I now can't use the touch screen or if I do get the touch screen to function I can't see, due to the roll, where or what the touch panel is showing.

    Rollin, flipping screen with tape in or out. Like an old television that needs adjustment.

You can purchase a new LCD Flex cable for a Sony HDR-HC3 (Same as HDR HC7) from e-bay for 27 US$.
You can also download free service manual from internet that explains simple repair.

My Tissot T-Touch Altimeter does not function.


Mine did the same thing; I read in other blogs that this could happen due to humidity. I heat up my watch with my wife's blower for about 5 minutes on high. After 5 min I couldn't even touch it! The screen went blank. After a few minutes when it cooled down the screen came back up and to my amazement all the function came back. it is risky but So far... it works well.

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

Hello,

The problem with your phone is just flex problem, the flex on the screen of your phone is weak or worn out, this is a common problem among slide or flip phone.

What you need to do is to replace the flex on the screen of your phone, you can get this done by going to any local phone repairer within your vicinity to help get it fix or replace.

Once the flex is replace, your phone display problem is solve and the screen will start displaying.

Take care.

Your device might have a problem in the touch screen.

In iPhone 2G the touch panel and the LCD screen are one unit that cannot be separated.

You shoud try to replace the iPhone screen with a new one and the problem should be fixed.

Flip Video Mino keeps freezing up, can't shut down or upload


At least the following works on my first generation Flip Ultra camcorder (not Mino). Remove battery, put it back next morning. After that be careful not to touch "on" slider switch on the side of the camcorder while Flip logo is still on the screen. I mean turn the device on by using the slider switch and do not touch that switch again until Flip logo on the screen is gone. Doing the opposite (trying to use the "on" switch again while device is still "booting" and Flip logo is on the screen) will lead to the Flip Ultra freeze.
