Sony DSR-PD170 Color Problem

I’m having an intermittent problem with my PD170 that relates to color. Occasionally, the image in the LCD appears completely red. It doesn’t loose any detail, but appears to be void of any blue or green. The recorded video is captured as it appears on the LCD. Sometimes I can shut the camera down and then turn it back on to resolve the issue, but this doesn’t always work.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Sounds like a problem with the image sensor, or an intermittent cable connection to the sensor.

Horizontal blinking lines appear on the screen of Sony Vaio VPCEL 10EL


Possible cause:

1. Video card failure.
2. Bad connection between video cable and LCD screen.
3. Bad LCD screen.
4. Faulty video cable.


Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:

1. First of all, test the laptop video output on the external monitor. If you see same flashing lines running through the image on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video card. If flashing lines appear only on the laptop screen, the failure is not related to the video card.

2. Just in case, try re-seating the video cable connectors on the motherboard/video card and maybe the back of the LCD screen. It' s not likely but possible that connection is loose and reconnecting the cable will fix the flashing lines.

3. If re-seating the cable connectors doesn't help, most likely you have a faulty LCD screen. The LCD screen has to be replaced.

4. If replacing the screen doesn't help, try replacing the video cable. It's very unlikely that this problem is related to the video cable but there is a slight possibility of that.

Ilo 42" Wide Screen LCD TV...Picture Malfunction


From some of the forum threads I've read about this, it seems like there were early issues due to bad firmware, but they have all be resolved with the recent updates. It also appears to be very easy to replace the hard drive. Just swap it out, format from the menu and you are done.

u will neeed to get it updated

The image in the viewfinder is now black and white and the LCD screen doesn't work


iam very sorry that you have this problem.When an LCD screen of DSRPD170P stops working it means that you have to get a replacement LCD screen. The replacement requires a qualified technical person. if you have such a person , then here are the details for ordering the LCD screen parts:
A-7078-956-A PD-217 board complete.
8-753-209-13 ACX500ENA
1-517-931-21 Tube fluorescent cold cathode.

Please note that the viewfinder of the DSR PD170 camera is always manufactured and supplied as black and white (not colour) so this is not a fault!

Could be either a loose connection or a defective lcd cable or lcd. Likely a bad lcd cable. ordering one from ebay and replacing it is the easiest way to tell and least expensive
