My sony HDR-SR11E`s the touch screen isn`t responding.


My Sony HDR SR-12 had the same problem. The issue is most likely a broken flexible circuit board which runs from the display through the hinge to the main camera body. After seeing the repair costing from $250.00 to $400.00, I determined the camera wasn't worth fixing. Then I found i could buy the circuit board on Ebay for about $30.00. I ordered a circuit board, actually it came with a second board and instructions. It is a fairly tedious repair and took me about 1.5 hours. You need to be fairly mechanically inclined to attempt this repair. Basically you have to disassemble the camera and touch screen, replace the circuit board and reassemble. The cicuir board has to be folded and wrapped around the hinge correctly. I guess the reason they sell two cicuit boards together is to allow you to ruin one on your first try. The boards i ordered had good instructions on how to complete the repair and fold the cicuit boards. I got mine done on th efirst try, so I have another board for when it breaks again. Due to the time required, I can see whay the repair is expensive.

My Sony HDR-SR12 touch screen don't show anything when i open the camera. when i pust it a little in front of the camera it start to display, but otherwise it don't. I think there is a contact...


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.

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.

HDR-SR12 - LCD Touch screen very dim , screen works but almost completely dark. tried increased brightness etc no help


My camera's backlight went dark. Occasionally it would work if I pressed just the right way, but it was basically toast.

Search ebay for an HDR-SR11 or HDR-SR12 flex cable similar to this one:

It's not impossible to replace, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart. Some offer a replacement service with it. I'm doing mine myself. Results to follow, maybe, if I remember to post following the repair.

My camera's backlight went dark. Occasionally it would work if I pressed just the right way, but it was basically toast. With the right external light you could sort of make out what was on the screen by back reflection of what was on the LCD screen.

It's not impossible to replace, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart. Some offer a replacement service with it. I did mine and it works excellently. An $8 cable and about an hour (plus a lot of pictures-as-you-go for reassembly) is all it takes.

HDR-SR12 was dropped. Now the screen is blank but is still touch sensitive.

My sony hd sr-11 touch screen is not responding.


best thing to do with things like that is to go and talk to a real person at the sony shop, or it could be that you have just set the touch screen setting of.

HDR-SR12 - LCD Touch screen not working.


My camera's touch screen on my SR12E also stopped working early this month (July 2010). Just before I had had it for two years.

I tried to backup, and was really struggling since most functions are done via "the touch of the screen".

But after much frustration trying, I found out that the camera also connects to the laptop the same way by pushing the "burn to disk" button. Try also the blue "EASY" button if the other do not work.

When this is done you can start the "SONY program" to choose import media or what it is called inside the program...

Now you will get the normal menu "popping up" so you can choose to backup the content to your computer.

Beware:
What I did further after backing up was to push the "reset" button to try to maybe get the "touch screen function" back in order.

But this only resets all preferences for the camera.

It did not delete what was stored on it.

The result is now that I will have to film in "default mode" (low quality) for the rest of my holidays, and get an irritating "set-up" screen menu prompting me to input the date etc each time I start the camera and at other intervals...

So the rest of my holiday will be in SD and not HD...

It should have been possible to choose the selections (navigate the camera) via your laptop when you end up in a situation like this...and need to change my settings.

Hope my solution were helpful for being able to backup.

I think you still should check with "consumer help" in your country if you can still get a free repair when the screen stops working, since you normally will be more extensively protected by law then what the warranty tell you.
