Repair handycam touchscreen

It should be the first screen you see when you turn it on, if it has not been set. This is an old camera, so the internal rechargeable battery that saves this info may be dead.
here is the manual in pdf if you don't already have it.

Type of unit:Sony Handycam (DCR-HC26)I have a couple...1)when trying to insert a DV cassette,the door will not shut.2)The buttons on the touch screen won't work either.

The most likely cause for the buttons not working is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. The tape mechanism is another story.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My sony DCR-HC26 TOUCH SCREEN NOT WORKING

it's not exactly the same, but this website shows a pretty foolproof way on how to fix it on a different camera.

http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=33427&forum=32&start=10&select_page_number=2

i fixed the touchscreen on my hc26 with it on the first try. i put a piece of paper folded a couple times under the ribbon cable connections where it meets the screen (against the plastic frame for the screen, under the blue cable), and put a piece of cardboard against the circuit board to give it more pressure from that side. works like a charm!

My sony handycam dcr-hc26 door won't close. error C:32:11

Hi,
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.
Thanks.

I have a Sony handycam DRC-HC26. After placing the DV tape the tape refuse to load into the tape compartment and as such the tape door cannot be closed. Please advise.

Hi,
The mechanical of tape loading compartment is misaligned and it needs readjustment which is a bit technical issue. Please contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of tape loading path assembly.
This will solve your problem.
Thanks.

Tape door wont close

I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks
