Yes. The screen can be replaced and can usually 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.

The touch screen on my Sony DCR-HC40E is not working


Hi!
The flat LCD cable which goes through the hinges has broken - a common problem with many Sony camcorders. You will have to give it to Sony for repair.
I work for Sony.

I barely use my camcorder as it has been broken since the second use. The lcd screen shows a "jumping" picture so you can't see what you are recording. The recording comes out correctly.


If it is still under warranty, you must mail it to the factory to be fixed or replaced. If you just want to keep it the way it is (broken screen) , you must use the small view-finder to aim the camera properly while shooting movies.

Also if you need a battery alternative that will save you money, a external battery pack can be made that will give you several more hours of recording time.

Here is the link to the battery pack video:
