Big problems with my videocamera Sony HC40, that I use quite much since 1 year and a half:
-The LCD screen, which is tactile, is not working anymore. I think it's a connection problem, as in the beginning it only happened sometimes, when i touched the screen in a specific way.
So before I take it to the repair shop, Has anyone ever had the same issue, and can repair it myself or is it difficult?
-The head are going really bad. 2 weeks after I bought it, it started displaying "head dirty use head cleaner" so i bought it and it got good. after a while (6 months), the cleaning were increasing, and the tapes sometime became stripped with previous recording. And then lately I have to clean it at almost every use, and sometimes when I normally film something, it appears that it wasn't recorded when I watch it. I had a look at other threads and I reckon it is a head problem, so is it possible to do anything before repairing it, and do you know a good repair shop in France ?
I can do without the LCD, but I think that without heads I'll have to stop my carreer...
