    Greetings fellow Usenet citizens.

    Unable to get LCD touch panel functions to work after replacing
    theflip out LCD screen.

    Sony DCR-HC32 digital camcorder.

    The LCD was cracked by accident.

    I obtained another one from Sony DAPC.

    Replacement installation seemed to go fine.

    Screen turns on, lights up, shows a picture, even reverses when the
    flip out is turned 180 degrees.

    Why doesn't the touch screen work anymore?

    Have tried pushing the 'reset' button. Unable to perform calibration
    because the touch panel must be working first.

    Perhaps one of the flat ribbon cables is not fully inserted into the
    connector? If so, then wouldn't the screen fail to work at all until
    everything is perfect?

    Any help will be grandly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Did the new screen come with the touch panel, or did you remove it from the
    old display?

    The LCD requires a separate touchscreen that is placed in front of the LCD.

    Hi Jack.

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    I figured it out.

    The flat ribbon cable connectorfor the touch screen was inserted into
    its socket on the IC board upside down.

    After you said to look at the old screen I eaxamined it very closely.
    I noticed that the cable for the touch screen was folded in reverse of
    what I had done for the replacement.

    BTW, the touch screen for the DCR-HC32 LCD is built-in-- not a
    separate part like a PC or laptop version.

    OK, great that you got it working.

    I was not sure if the touch screen came with it or not.
