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

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!

SOURCE: touch screen stuck on set

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.


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.

SOURCE: sony handycam DCR-HC26 touch screen not working

This is usually caused by a defective LCD module or a defective flex cable that connects the LCD to the camera. I recommend replacing them both at the same time. The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony at an reasonable price for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them in stock as well as an aftermarket supplier with hundreds of them.

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.
