Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, the described symptom almost always point to an internal hardware issue or more particularly, possible suspects are:

  • • if it is just the subject when recording, then possibly the CCD sensor (least likely);
  • • if it is the screen display blanking at a certain position of the screen/lid, then a potential flex cable issue. Click HERE (likely);
  • • if the display is all black at any given operation/instance, then the LCD screen itself would be highly suspect. Click HERE (most likely).

All of the above would require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.
