What is the flex cable function? How do we know if it’s broken?

Pablo - Contestar

You might not know unless you take the camcorder shell off, but in my case, the flex ribbon completely split at the hinge of the flip screen and I could see the severed flex ribbon poking out from the hinge.

Good video of the change of flex FP 835, congratulations for the well explained. Can you help me, indicating if you know where the flex FP 836, Board complete or A-7112-125A, better known as flexible cable FP 836, is placed. I am interested in knowing where the end that has a fiberglass part with a metal part. According to the service manual that I obtained, it indicates that it goes inside the hinge, but I don't see that this is the case, even in your video, only explaining the flex 835. If you can help me, I will appreciate it. I don't speak English so I translated it. A photograph would be enough to see where the fles fp836 goes. Thank you

You can get a replacement touch screen flex ribbon on eBay at: https://www.ebay.com/itm/302055909485 . I bought from this seller and the ribbon will absolutely work in the SONY 40x Optical Zoom, DCR-HC52 model camcorder to repair a touch screen that is no longer responsive due to broken flex ribbon/cable. eBay description claims same ribbon works for SONY models: DCR-HC37E, HC38, HC52, HC54, HC62, and HC37. I just repaired my HC52 model today (March 19, 2023) and can only vouch for it working in the HC52 model.  Repair is tricky, if questions on how to repair, you can e-mail me at rwg215@gmail.com  There is one hidden screw under the panel that has the “Nightshot Plus” switch. You have to open the cassette bay to get that panel off after unscrewing the visible screw on top of the panel and once slid off, you will see a hidden screw under that panel. There is also a hidden latch in the touch screen rotating hinge that is easy to miss and if put back wrong, it may prevent your screen from rotating.
