Hello, my name is Shahid, I'll be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.

- Can you take apart the camcorder to check the connectors in it?


Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I expect I could if I was told how to do it. Presumably I would need a tiny screwdriver, which I do not have?

Expert:  Shahid replied 3 years ago.

If you have not done such work in past then it would be tough to take apart this camcorder safely and there would be chances to do more damage.
I can provide you safe disassemble procedure for this camcorder but can't hold your hand for every screw and camcorder has delicate ribbon cables inside that can get damage very easily so please think again before getting start this and do it at your own risk.
If you feel uncomfortable working on it then local camera tech is next option to check connectors between display screen and main board of camera.
It is also possible that display screen got damaged and need to be replaced but the only way to confirm is visual check.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

I will get a small screwdriver so that you can talk me through it. But I can't do this today now. How do I return to you when I am in a position to do this?
