Anyone here any experience of repairing Sony camcorders? I have a
handycam Sony DCR-HC19E and the LCD seems to have gone faulty. The
touchscreen still works OK and it records picture, so it's not the
CCD, but there is no image on the LCD at all, just a black screen.
It's out of warranty, and probably not worth getting repaired
professionally with the price of camcorders these days. Any tips on
what it might be and if it can be fixed at home - like lose wire or
something easy?

Thanks.

Possibly a bad ribbon cable or the backlight failed.

Thanks Jumpster. Can you explain what you mean by the backlight
failed? Is the LCD lit up by back light?
